Since its foundation in 1893, the School of Medicine has been committed to the pursuit of improved human health, through education, research and engagement with the wider world.
The School is now one of the largest in the United Kingdom, home to over 3000 students and staff.
We are a major international centre for teaching and research, and a vibrant community of medical endeavour.
As well as our world-class contribution to medicine, we play an important part in the life of Wales. The School is based at University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, and at other sites within Wales. We make a positive difference to the way medicine is practised across the country.
