School of Medical Education

We train the next generation of medical professionals.

Excellence in Medicine

Newcastle University is home to one of the largest integrated medical teaching and hospital complexes in the country. We provide excellent undergraduate and postgraduate training.

Medicine has been taught in Newcastle since 1834 and our regional medical school spans the North East of England and Cumbria. This includes Clinical Learning centres across all NHS trusts.

As the largest school in the Faculty of Medical Sciences, we are responsible for the delivery of the Undergraduate Medical (MBBS),  Postgraduate Medical Education (Certificate, Diploma and Masters) and Physician Associate programmes.

Our work contributes significantly to the reputation of Newcastle University for Teaching Excellence.

A very large number of people contribute to our programmes. Within the School we employ more than 100 members of  staff. Many more associated with the programmes work in NHS settings across the region to deliver a first class clinical experience for our students.

Feel valued

We commit to excellence in learning and teaching. Our innovative research in medical education including learning technologies in clinical education underpins this. People are at the heart of what we do. We offer our staff and students a vibrant learning environment so everyone can feel supported and valued.
