Dundee is consistently ranked among the UK’s top 5 medical schools and placed No.1 in Scotland by the Guardian University Guide 2015.

Based at Ninewells, in Dundee’s west end, we are fully integrated with NHS Tayside in one of Europe’s largest teaching hospitals with education and research facilities that are among Europe’s most technologically advanced.

For those looking to embark on a medical career, our exciting and challenging curriculum is internationally recognised for its excellence.  In a highly supportive environment, our graduate doctors are regarded as the best prepared for practice in the NHS.

You’ll find a wealth of information about our courses on this website. And if you have questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

In addition to our undergraduate programmes, we are also proud of our reputation as a centre of excellence for postgraduate studies: in clinical specialties, research and continuing professional development. Our courses are diverse; from molecular biology to surgical skills; from psychiatry to orthopaedics. It is also possible to undertake some studies part-time or by way of distance learning.

We collaborate widely across the University – in education and research. And on this large hospital campus, we are privileged to operate in a true “lab bench to bedside” environment, where clinicians and researchers interact on a daily basis to tackle fundamental problems in human health and patient care.

We are recognised for our world class research strengths in cancer, cardiovascular disease & diabetes, informatics & public health, neuroscience and imaging. Our Medical Research Institute works in partnership with many stakeholders including research councils, medical charities, industry, the NHS and government agencies.

Whether you are a postgraduate student or a seasoned investigator, if you want to shape the future, you should be speaking with us.

On the global front, Dundee welcomes motivated students and high achieving graduates from all over the world. We not only enjoy a fabulous environment to study and work, we are also blessed with living in one of Britain’s most glorious regions – with the Scottish Highlands to the north of Dundee, the sweeping coastland to the east and the capital, Edinburgh, just an hour drive to the south.

Our alumni, many of whom regularly visit us and support our activities, can vouch for the quality of life on Tayside, Scotland.

And Dundee is also reaching out – establishing medical education and healthcare partnerships across Asia, the Middle East, Africa and South America.

We are rightfully proud of what Dundee is achieving: a Medical School that is truly excellent in global terms; that is friendly and inclusive, with great staff-student relations.

We are committed to strengthening all of our existing relationships and building new, sustainable friendships.  We hope that you’ll find inspiration here on our website and that you are only a few clicks away from getting in touch – and changing your life.

Kind Regards,

Professor Gary J. Mires, Dean, School of Medicine
