The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is 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 effectively 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 that vision.
Teaching within the school has a strong focus on Problem Based Learning, 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.
The Faculty delivers world class research. The results of the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) demonstrates that, on average, over 85 per cent of our research is rated as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'. The Faculty continues to take a leading role in the renowned scientific research community in Norwich, cited as the fourth highest city for science research in the UK.
