UHNM Clinical Teacher of the Year and Clinical Teaching Fellow of the Year 2017/2018

It is important to encourage and recognise excellence in clinical teaching, particularly in light of the current climate where there are many competing demands. Each year the Keele Medical students have the opportunity to vote for the most inspiring UHNM clinical teachers. The clinicians with the most votes are awarded UHNM Clinical Teacher of the Year and Clinical Teaching Fellow of the Year.

Professor Kirby recently presented the 2017/18 academic year awards at the Grand Round, the Trusts Educational Forum, on Friday 29th June. Dr Ranjan Sanyal, Consultant Stroke Physician won UHNM Clinical Teacher of the Year.

Dr Girish Muddegowda, Consultant Stroke Physician and Dr Ahmed Raza, SPR in Respiratory Medicine were joint runners-up. Dr Charles Cathcart won Clinical Teaching Fellow of the year.

We would like to recognise and thank them for all the work they do with our undergraduates.

Our curriculum will be taught at Sunderland School of Medicine

Our excellent medical curriculum has been adopted by the University of Sunderland for their newly founded School of Medicine.

Increased number of students

The University has been successful in its bid to increase the number of students at the School of Medicine.

As part of the biggest ever increase to medical training in the UK, the University has been awarded an additional 35 student places over the next two years, representing a 29% increase in the intake of home students to study medicine by September 2019. From September 2019 we will take 154 home and EU students (plus additional international students) each year.
