Welcome to Medicine and Surgery at Lancaster University
We want future healthcare to be aligned with the backgrounds and needs of the communities it serves. This means not only striving for excellence in research and academic standards, but also examining the factors that contribute to positive health for everyone.
As a young medical school in a high-ranking, forward-looking university, Lancaster has the autonomy to focus on the unfolding health needs of the population, at the local, national and global level. We are passionate about inspiring future generations to address health inequalities. We are justly proud of the community we have created within Lancaster Medical School. As a team, we nurture talent to bring out the full potential of our students.
We strive to create resilient, workready medical practitioners who are confident in themselves and confident in questioning the future direction of healthcare provision. Our students learn to take an holistic approach to medicine and to explore health from all sides. There is no part of our teaching where book learning happens in isolation. We combine problem-based learning and clinical placements with teaching from academics and clinicians. You should come to us armed with practical skill sets and plenty of self-discipline, as well as academic excellence. One question we will always ask of you, whichever medical career you choose: what impact will you have on health?
