Close links with medical specialists Close links with medical specialists

The Norwich Medical School works closely with the East of England Deanery and our partner Hospitals (Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, James Paget Hospital, Queen Elizabeth hospital in King's Lynn, and Ipswich Hospital) to train highly qualified, highly skilled, research-active new doctors.

Working with our NHS partners in the East of England it is clear that there are particular areas of strength for clinical training with a wide range of active clinical research programmes.

In particular, we support a program of excellence in clinical research for the following areas:

  • Cardiovascular research
  • Gastroenterology, microbiology and the development of new antibiotics
  • Healthy ageing
  • Metabolic bone disease and rheumatology
  • Musculoskeletal health
  • Nutritional research with particular emphasis on cachexia and muscle loss
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Stroke and Rehabilitation
  • The effectiveness of health technologies and screening
  • Health promotion
  • The organisation and delivery of care.

These strengths have been recognised nationally in the provision of clinical training programmes, many of which have been adopted by national institute of health research (NIHR). Students that may wish to pursue a clinical research project are encouraged to consult well in advance with the Clinical Research Director Marcus Flather, and may wish to contact the lead for the specialty in which they are directly interested.
