The Institute for Medical and Biomedical Education (IMBE) is the largest of the four St George’s institutes and home to nearly 150 staff. Our mission is high-quality and well-organised healthcare and science education that immerses students in research and practice and prepares them well for their future lives.

Our academics represent diverse disciplinary backgrounds and are engaged in teaching and research. A significant proportion of staff work part-time, including active clinicians combining academic work with roles in the NHS and primary care.

Institute of Medical and Biomedical Education staff are located in the Hunter building and the Jenner building, where our biomedical scientist academics and anatomists are based to be proximal to research laboratories and the dissecting room.

IMBE is composed of two academic centres: the Centre for Clinical Education and the Centre for Biomedical Education.
