Exceptional medical education

“Welcome to Hull York Medical School: the joint medical school of the Universities of Hull and York, and home to one of the UK’s most exciting and innovative undergraduate medicine programmes.

“At Hull York Medical School we pride ourselves on producing confident, compassionate and work-ready doctors, whose training, rooted in place-based, patient-centred care, has armed them with the scientific knowledge, empathy and resilience they need to thrive in a modern healthcare setting.

“As a student on our MB BS programme, you will experience sustained clinical contact with real-life NHS patients from the very start of the programme; benefit from a bespoke learning environment based around small group study and unparalleled contact time with senior clinicians; and access the very best that the Universities of Hull and York have to offer.

The privilege of practising medicine is the trust afforded to us by patients at times of their greatest vulnerability; the skill is being able to apply knowledge so those patients receive the best treatment and care available.

Professor Una Macleod


“I studied medicine in the 1980s, and my career has taken me from a hospital environment into clinical and academic general practice, via leading research teams seeking to improve cancer diagnosis, treatment and care. It is now my privilege to be Dean of Hull York Medical School, with responsibility for ensuring that you are equipped with the skills needed to pursue your own successful career path. Whether your ambition is to become a surgeon, a psychiatrist, a general practitioner or a paediatrician, your experience at Hull York Medical School will stand you in good stead for a long and impactful career delivering exceptional care.

“I look forward to welcoming you on the first step of your career path as a doctor."
