The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences delivers world class research. We also remain one of the best in the country for innovative teaching and research excellence in health.
Our students and staff share a common vision and sense of purpose: to work and study efficiently in the ceaseless challenge to improve healthcare. A supportive culture, superb facilities, and a close relationship with the NHS and other research partners make our faculty a great place to realise this vision.
Problem-based learning (PBL)
Teaching at 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 both of our schools.
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's a thriving community of over 40 businesses and 3,000 scientists, researchers and clinicians - many of them talented graduates from the University of East Anglia.
