Our postgraduate taught programmes offer students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of subjects such as clinical anatomy, human anatomy and evolution and their applications in practise and in education. We also have a vibrant postgraduate research community with students pursuing research across the broad spectrum of healthcare.
Through our research we are advancing developments in healthcare – treatment, diagnosis and care. From the early diagnosis of cancer, to reducing inequalities in access to treatment, improving outcomes for people with mental health issues, to improving the lives of those with life limiting illnesses - our researchers are making a difference to the lives of people within our immediate communities, nationally and internationally.
I studied medicine in the 1980s and my career has taken me from hospital medicine into clinical and academic general practice. I have led research teams seeking to enhance the role of general practice in the diagnosis and care of people with cancer. It is now my privilege to be Dean of Hull York Medical School and working together with our staff, students and partners to make a difference to the health of people within our region and beyond."
