The Norwich Medical School at UEA has an established reputation for exciting and innovative approaches to education, supported by a strong and rapidly developing research programme.
Our MB BS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) programme accepts graduates and other mature students as well as school leavers on to a 5-year integrated course, and students are allocated clinical placements from their first year onwards. We also run a Foundation year programme for students to progress onto the 5-year MB BS.
The research environment of the University is very strong, particularly in the Biological Sciences and Environmental Sciences. The Institute of Food Research and the John Innes Centre for Plant Biology are situated close by on the Norwich Research Park.
The School itself is building a strong reputation in Population Medicine, Health Economics, and Diet and Health and BioMedicine with laboratory work now being concentrated in the newly-built BioMedical Research Centre. As part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences we place a strong emphasis on inter-professional co-operation in teaching and research.
We are committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN charter, which recognises and celebrates good practice in recruiting, retaining and promoting women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) in higher education. We have already been awarded a bronze award and are in the process of applying for a silver award.
