The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences delivers world class research. The results of the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) demonstrate that, on average, more than 85 per cent of our research is rated as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
The Faculty also remains one of the very best in the country for innovative teaching and research excellence in health. Students and staff share a common vision and sense of purpose: to work and study efficiently in the ceaseless challenge to improve healthcare. Our supportive culture, superb facilities, and close relationship with the NHS and other research partners make this Faculty a great place to fulfil this vision.
Teaching within the school has a strong focus on Problem Based Learning (PBL), with patient contact from the very outset of our courses. Sound scientific knowledge and inter-professional learning are fundamental across each of our three schools.
Our courses in Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Nursing and Midwifery have been rated amongst the top ten in the UK according to the Complete University Guide 2017, with Medicine ranking at number two for student satisfaction (National Student Experience Survey 2017).
We are also proud to be a partner of the Norwich Research Park, one of Europe’s leading centres for food and health research and home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. It is a thriving community of over 40 businesses, 3000 scientists, researchers and clinicians: many of them talented graduates from the University of East Anglia.
