We are proud of our reputation as one of the very best schools of medicine in the country.

Our School's collaborative approach to learning also promotes the team-working and leadership skills necessary for a successful doctor supported supported by our strong and rapidly developing research programme. Our students strive for excellence; each graduate is a knowledgeable scholar and scientist, a skilful practitioner, and an ethical professional ready to use their skills and knowledge to improve the health of all those his or her care.
The Medical Degree programme at UEA is one of the newest in the UK with the first cohort of students graduating in 2007. The curriculum is innovative and exciting. Clinical placements take place from year 1 onwards and one day per week is spent in Primary Care throughout the course so that what is learnt in theory is applied to real patients in the same week. The main learning method is Problem Based Learning with an emphasis on working in small groups to apply what is learnt to patient scenarios but there are also lectures, seminars and on-line materials to support the learning.
