Sitting at the heart of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine is a hub for world-class education and innovative, interdisciplinary biomedical research.
Employing nearly 3000 people, spanning all varieties of staff from Academic Professors and Researchers to administrative support and Clinical Academic staff, the School aims to provide leadership in education, discovery and healthcare and does this through inspirational teaching and training, outstanding basic and clinical research and integration of these to improve medical practice for both individual patients and the population.
We value diversity and inclusion very highly and we are committed to delivering on a range of initiatives to support this through our Athena Swan programme which has had a positive impact on our culture. We are proud to hold a silver Athena Swan award.
The University recognises the importance of ‘good wellbeing’ and is committed to providing a healthy working environment and improving the quality of working lives for all staff.
Our wellbeing strategy at the School of Clinical Medicine aims to support the University’s mission and core values of freedom of thought and expression, freedom from discrimination and the recognition that the University’s staff are its greatest asset. To support the strategy, we have a comprehensive wellbeing programme which includes regular events, support and signposting on all areas of wellbeing.
The School of Clinical Medicine aspires to change the practice of medicine and improve biological understanding in a wide range of clinical specialties and scientific disciplines. Collaborative research, both within biomedicine and crossing the boundaries to the mathematical, physical and social sciences, is key to our approach. The School also supports key enabling technologies and facilities in imaging, bioinformatics and biological systems. The main areas of research interest are:
