The Peninsula Medical School is committed to three core aims: outstanding clinical education; strong social engagement; and world-class research which will all feature strongly in your learning experience.
A key strength is our close relationship with NHS partners, with early clinical contact for all our students. The South West offers healthcare and learning opportunities of exceptional quality; Derriford is one of Europe’s largest hospitals and the only trauma centre in Devon and Cornwall.
A further strength is our scholarly approach to education, supported by the Division of Education Scholarship.
The Plymouth Institute of Health and Care Research is the core of our research activity.
We are looking for highly motivated and talented students to join us and become the next generation of doctors.
We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion across all aspects of our activities. We are proud to hold an
Athena Swan Silver Award recognising our commitment to champion and support a culture of participation and inclusivity and to communicate and raise awareness of equality, diversity and inclusion.
We have a Zero Tolerance policy on all forms of discrimination, abuse, and harm in order to maintain a safe, professional, and friendly learning environment for everyone. We have signed up to the BMA Racial Harassment Charter which offers guidance and best practice to address the unacceptable barriers faced by BAME students, and to prevent and effectively deal with any racial harassment on campus and in work placements.
