Celebrating 20 years

Our 20th anniversary provides us with an opportunity to reflect – on how far we have come in such a relatively short space of time, but also to look to the future and what we want our impact over the next 20 years to be.

Inspiring people

We believe that everyone counts.

We are committed to promoting a culture of diversity, respect and aspiration.

Our values are at the heart of this. They shape what we do, and the way that we do it and help us empower everyone to reach their potential.

We want to continue to inspire the next generation of clinical and academic leaders.

Our values

Equality, diversity and inclusion

Exceptional medical education

We are focused on delivering exceptional education for future healthcare.

Since the start we have been at the forefront of medical education, pioneering Problem Based Learning, emphasising the importance of clinical and communication skills, and providing early and sustained clinical experience across primary and secondary care settings.

Our 20th anniversary gives us an opportunity to reflect on how we can continue to deliver exceptional education to support the future of healthcare – ensuring that we produce health professionals and scientists who are able to make a real difference across their areas of work.

World-leading research

We are improving the health of people in our region and beyond.

Our world leading researchers are advancing healthcare – from scientific discoveries that underpin the development, diagnosis and treatment of some of the world’s most aggressive diseases to applied health research, which addresses public health challenges. This work is reducing inequalities and improving outcomes for people in our immediate region and beyond.

Our research has discovery and innovation at its heart, and this will guide us as we continue to address current and future health challenges.

Working in partnership

We are collaborative.

Our School was founded on partnership - between our universities and NHS Trusts, GPs and community healthcare providers across our region. Today those partnerships are stronger than ever.

By working in partnership, we can understand the health challenges faced by people in our immediate communities, as well as remain abreast of the local and regional workforce needs to ensure that through our teaching and research, we can make a real and lasting difference, in our region and further afield.
