Academic Unit Overview


Learning environment

Experienced staff from a wide range of specialisms work in partnership with internal and external stakeholders to develop an engaging, student-centred learning environment. Key to this are the students themselves, and in 2014, the team won an international ASPIRE award for excellence in student engagement.

Medical Education manages a number of different undergraduate programmes designed to meet the needs of more than 1,200 medical students and prepare doctors for 21st Century healthcare in Europe.

Staff foster a learning culture that empowers individuals and encourages innovation and we are continually exploring opportunities for flexible education which adapts to the changing way people want to learn. Examples include the extensive use of Virtual Patients, interactive quizzes and video packages; comprehensive learning portals; and a series of online practicals which are used to 'flip' the classroom. We also offer a comprehensive suite of online staff development modules. 

Medical Education staff advise on national education policy, provide national and international consultancy and collaborate with community groups. Key external partners currently include the NHS, the Wessex Deanery, Gesundheit Nordhessen Holding, the International Malnutrition Task Force, the International Medical University Malaysia and Universiti Brunei Darussalam.

Medical Education is based in the Life Sciences building on the Highfield campus and at Southampton General Hospital.
