Our course is innovative, student-centred and community-based, and follows the recommendations of the General Medical Council, the professional governing body for medicine in the UK. Dundee allows you to study medicine in a friendly, responsive and student-centred environment. Our comparatively small size as a medical school works to your advantage: there is close integration of teaching and research activities, and our medical students are fully involved from an early stage in pioneering new approaches to teaching, clinical practice and research. Ninewells Hospital and Medical School is the centre of many areas of pioneering research in cancer, keyhole surgery, heart disease, drug development, and medical education. Dundee is an excellent place to study medicine, both for the high quality of the teaching programme and for the facilities available
We're an established university with a progressive and dynamic outlook. Never complacent, we constantly strive to build on our achievements: investing in excellent facilities, pushing the boundaries of research and developing new ways of e-learning. Everything you need can be found on campus, although the attractions of the city are only a few minutes away.
