Lancaster Medical School is an emerging school offering high quality teaching, research and expertise addressing fundamental issues in health and medicine.
Our research has a collaborative approach across the University and with external partners such as the NHS, health-related industries and the voluntary sector both nationally and worldwide. This was evident in the 2014 Research Excellent Framework (REF) with the Health and Medicine Faculty ranked first in the UK.
Research within the Medical School spans all aspects of Medicine including basic biomedical research, social and ethical aspects of health and medicine, and medical education. CHICAS (Combining Health Information, Computation and Statistics), is a research group based within the Medical School that focuses on innovative development and application of medical statistics and epidemiology.
Our teaching is delivered through problem based learning supplemented with lectures and clinical anatomy teaching. Our MBChB admits 54 students per year which offers early patient contact within our local NHS partner network.
