Having within the last few years spending millions on all the buildings in which a prospective medic would be taught both preclin with a facelift to the biosci building and the new Cochrane building my opinion on the facilities has done a full 180. While previously the main buildings had been stuck in the past with ugly tatty lecture theatres, library and study areas Cardiff for Medicine now has facilities which would be the envy of other unis. The new library at Cochrane building is over 3 floors with all the books needed and helpful librarians which help you find any book or paper not available by ordering from other libraries within the nhs wales trust. Only downside is how busy and loud it can be as all healthcare subjects share it. Plenty of pcs. Within the same building are the new state of the art clinical skills rooms which can be booked handy during examtime. Cardiff medic teams are going strong and are a really good way to get to know people from different years.
