The University of Exeter Medical School has a diverse cohort of 3,000 students and over 750 academic and research staff, based across Devon and Cornwall.
In education, we specialise in research-led teaching and in developing socially accountable graduates who are collaborative leaders, committed to life-long scholarship for the service of patients and the public. We work closely with our healthcare collaborators in the region, to ensure we are meeting the complex needs of a changing healthcare sector. We are training tomorrow’s doctors, scientists and healthcare professionals, and supporting them to be empathic and inquisitive, and to adopt our ethos of putting people first.
In research, we excel at swiftly translating our discoveries into new treatments and therapies that have real impact in the South West, nationally and internationally. On our research pages, you can explore some examples of the impact of our wide-ranging work, which is making a real difference to people’s lives in some of today’s greatest global health challenges.
