Welcome from the Head of School

Professor Christian Mallen ‌I am delighted to welcome you on behalf of the School’s faculty, staff, and students to the School of Medicine and I hope you will be inspired by the glimpse this website gives you of our exciting and vibrant community.

Our School offers an outstanding range of research and teaching expertise within a thriving multi-professional health and care community, with over 300 staff, 750 undergraduate students, and 200 taught postgraduate students and 75 postgraduate research students.

We are a diverse community, all focused on delivering the best in teaching, research and innovation. We are home to internationally-renowned teams of researchers and methodologists, answering questions that will have a profound effect on the health and care of the nation.

We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly School, recognizing the demands on work/life balance, and have been awarded the Silver Athena Swan award for our efforts in improving working practices to ensure all our staff and students are supported at all levels of their work and study.

Uniting a world-leading research institute with established teams in the areas of medicine, physician associate, public health, paramedic science, social work and counselling enables us to explore and respond to new research questions, further breaking down the boundary between health and social care.

I am incredibly excited to be able to oversee this dynamic educational and research environment, and look forward to watching our students grown into future leaders within health and social care sectors.

With best wishes,

Professor Christian Mallen
