What we do

Together, we aim to deliver a quality assured Clinical Education that produces practitioners with outstanding clinical and communication skills who can flourish in a multiprofessional workplace in the UK and internationally.

All academic staff are involved in the values-based recruitment of students who come from a diverse pool of applicants including humanities graduates for our medical programme. All staff in the centre are also involved in personal tutoring of students and their assessments. The academic teams develop and review all elements of their programmes within each section to ensure that what we are delivering is current and evidence based, using new technologies where possible.

We have a rigorous and robust quality assurance process to ensure that we are able to optimize student experience on clinical placements. We have an embedded process for recognizing excellence in teaching and encourage staff to develop their educational portfolios throughout their careers by regular appraisal and peer review.
