The Medical Science and Education theme plays major roles in the research and teaching carried out within the School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine.
Home to research within anaesthetics and intensive care medicine, clinical simulation, interprofessional learning, this Section plays a major role in both the research and teaching carried out within the School. Research in basic and clinical sciences is integrated, along with expertise in clinical trials, to advance the understanding and treatment of a spectrum of human disorders. Teaching takes advantage of state-of-the-art research expertise in these areas to deliver the highest standard of instruction. Particularly relevant to this theme is our wide ranging expertise (education and research) leading in areas of pedagogic research to enhance programme development and design and medical education itself.
On the University campus, staff of the School are housed in the Medical School building including the Institute of Biomedical Research. Staff are also based in the University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and within a number of other NHS Trusts, including Birmingham Women’s and Birmingham Children’s Hospitals, as well as Heart of England, Sandwell and West Birmingham and Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Trusts.
