Welcome from the Dean of Medicine
Welcome to the Cardiff University Medical School web pages
The School has a proud record of world-class research and of educational innovation. It is the oldest Medical School in Wales and one of the largest in the UK. The School is ambitious and forward-looking and everything we do is aimed at improving the quality of care of patients.
We launched our successful ‘C21’ project to modernize and revitalize our undergraduate medical teaching and now we are extending that approach across all functions of the School through the 'MEDIC Forward' programme to help us grow into a world-leading medical school in terms of both research and teaching.
Our medical students say that Cardiff University’s School of Medicine is unique because of its 'real focus on the patient', the 'opportunity to work with teachers and researchers who are world experts', and being able to develop an 'excellent insight into what life as a doctor will be like'.
These web pages will show you how the impact of our teaching and research is making a real difference.
