Postgraduate study

In Medicine we are committed to the highest quality of provision in pursuit of excellence in biomedical sciences and clinical research.

We have a reputation for academic excellence in all aspects of teaching and research. We operate a highly focused research strategy with interdisciplinary research that bridges traditional subject boundaries. This provides a critical mass of research resources and explores areas of common intellectual interests around important clinical problems.

We aim to provide postgraduate students with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes required for a career in academia, health, industry and a range of other related sectors.
