About us

Medical Education provides a unique level of leadership and support for scientists and clinicians in the UK and abroad who teach students on our five Bachelor of Medicine (BM) programmes. Our staff advise on national education policy, provide national and international consultancy and collaborate with community groups.

The leaders of the main undergraduate medical programmes are members of Medical Education as are the leads of a number of Curriculum Themes, Pastoral Care, Digital Learning, Faculty Development, Student Selected Units, Subject and Clinical Specialities, and Education and Specialist Research.

Medical Education staff are educators and researchers with backgrounds and expertise in anatomy, the basic sciences, medicine, sociology, law and ethics, physiology, ICT, communication skills, pastoral care, professionalism and the humanities. Some staff are specialists in education theory and the development of pedagogic and education leadership skills while others are practising clinicians in areas that include neurology, anaesthetics, elderly care, pathology, surgery, general practice and complementary medicine.

Medical Education is based in the award winning Life Sciences building on the Highfield site of the main University campus and also at Southampton General Hospital.
