The School of Medicine, Medical Sciences, and Nutrition provides a dynamic teaching, learning and research ecosystem that pushes beyond boundaries to create opportunities for greater knowledge, innovation, and scientific advancement to underpin improved health and disease treatment.
By promoting a culture that constantly asks, "what if?" we transcend conventional thinking, break down barriers between disciplines, and defy limits in the discovery and delivery of progressive healthcare solutions for all. Our environment empowers educators and students to keep reaching beyond imagined boundaries.
We nurture future leaders and change-makers who believe pushing fresh thinking is imperative for healthcare’s exciting frontiers. Our students gain courage to defy simple solutions, instead seeking deeper wisdom. Equipped with compassion and moral conviction, our graduates reshape medical understanding to profoundly improve human lives.
Collectively, we hold a vision of radical collaboration across disciplines, communities, and nations, because no single perspective can reveal the boundaries of what healthcare could be.
Through a framework of Institutes, encompassing outstanding Research Centres, we pursue excellence and confront major societal health challenges head on. Our areas of impact include wellness, nutrition, cancer, cardiovascular and diabetes research, and musculoskeletal health. With relentless dedication spanning decades, our pioneering health services research has merited highest honours—exemplified by the 2018 Queen’s Anniversary Prize—and sustained top-tier recognition.
As an affirming indicator of our leadership, we placed 1st in Scotland and 8th overall in the UK for public health, health services and primary care according to the most recent national Research Excellence Framework. Moving forward, rising to shape the future of healthcare remains our unwavering commitment through continued institutional synergies, visionary collaboration, and world-class achievement.
Positioned at the epicentre of Foresterhill Health Campus, one of Europe’s most expansive health campuses in Europe, our cutting-edge facilities fuel opportunities without parallel. From the pioneering Suttie Centre for Healthcare Pedagogy to the groundbreaking Institutes of Medical and Applied Health Sciences—not to mention the globally renowned Rowett Institute propelling nutrition and wellness research—we utilise our infrastructure to unlock new dimensions in health capabilities.
Our students have access to world-class facilities, technologies and collaborations that continuously expand the horizons of medical insight. By intersecting diverse capabilities under one campus, we sculpt pathways to shape the imminent phases of disease prevention, diagnosis, and care.
Science Teaching Hub
Unveiled in early 2022, our new Science Teaching Hub empowers students through technologies forging the science frontiers of tomorrow. Within flexible lab spaces, medical science scholars utilise advanced analytical instrumentation and research-calibre equipment to pursue inspirations without limits. The facility’s paperless ethos fosters immersive learning while the open layout spurs interdisciplinary collisions that spark new perspectives. Our facilities not only enable students to pursue new ideas but set them in good stead for a successful career.
We have a thriving community of postgraduate students undertaking both taught and research degree programmes which strongly link to our areas of research expertise.
Designed for shaping leaders in medical innovation, our Masters programmes equip students with specialised expertise at the forefront of disease treatment and health breakthroughs. Whether pursuing full-time or part-time paths starting in September or January, all students access focused curricula to forge new dimensions in care. Through flexible blended learning models, students can progress online or via dynamic classroom and work-integrated channels, gaining versatile skillsets for maximum impact.
We offer a substantial portfolio of scholarships and bursaries aimed at supporting students with their studies. Visit our online funding database to search for all the available funding sources available.
