The University of Sunderland is one of only five new medical schools established in 2019 and we are working in partnership with Keele University School of Medicine to implement our new medical curriculum. We have partnerships with four hospital trusts, two mental health trusts, community services and 63 GP practices.
The curriculum has three phases delivered at the University and in primary and secondary care settings. Years 1 and 2 are based predominantly at City Campus. The majority of clinical placements in Years 3–5 are based in Sunderland and South Tyneside with a proportion in adjoining counties.
The University of Sunderland experience is different from most UK medical schools. We have a relatively small student intake of 100 students, a city-centre campus by the sea and a supportive community with enthusiastic and committed staff. Students at Sunderland will get inter-professional learning experiences, which involve group activities alongside students from other disciplines such as nursing, pharmacy, paramedic science, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
We have a range of generous scholarships available to students, please visit our website for more information.
