Centre for Medicine
From September 2016, medical students at Leicester study in our brand new, state-of-the-art Centre for Medicine. The centre represents a unique opportunity to bring together world-leading medical research and medical education under one roof and to produce doctors who are able to deliver high quality care in an effective and compassionate manner in a rapidly changing environment.
At £42 million, the centre is the largest investment in medical teaching and applied research by any UK university in the last decade. It has been designed to help to meet the demand for more capable and caring doctors and also to house applied research that will be at the forefront of improved patient safety and the fight against chronic disease.
Designed to minimise environmental impact while providing a pleasant space in which to teach, learn and work, the Centre for Medicine is the largest non-residential building in the UK to meet the exacting ‘Passivhaus’ standard.
Leicester Medical School has revised its undergraduate curriculum to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by the new Centre for Medicine, stressing real-world experience and scientific understanding.
