Medicine

The Norwich Medical School is a leader in preparing students to become highly competent and confident doctors. We are proud of our reputation as one of the very best schools of medicine in the country. We want you to be the best too -- by learning and developing first class clinical skills and nurturing excellence in scientific understanding.

The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Norwich Medical School.

If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.

In the meantime, don’t forget to Register Online to get access to your timetable once it becomes available, and log in to Blackboard our virtual learning environment.

Once you have registered online you will also need to attend the registration event on the 16 September. Further details will be sent by email.

  1. I wish to extend to you a very warm welcome to Norwich Medical School and my congratulations to you on your success in reaching this point.

    The undergraduate medical course is much more than a University degree course – though that is important and we maintain high academic standards. It is also a route to be able to practise Medicine, one of the greatest professions. Being a doctor is a huge privilege and at the same time, a considerable responsibility. During our work as doctors, we encounter patients who are at their most vulnerable and they have the right to expect from us not only a high level of clinical skill but also integrity, compassion, excellent communication skills and professionalism. Therefore, throughout this course, we emphasise, develop and assess these skills and values.
     
    Lest the above sounds daunting, let me reassure you, yes, the course is demanding, but I am confident that you will find it extremely rewarding and that you will also make enduring friendships during your time with us.
     
    Work hard, read and learn widely, behave well – but also take time to relax and look after your own health. If you struggle with the course, please ask for help. 

    You are on the path to a career that you will find immensely rewarding. Enjoy the journey. Today you are taking the first step.

    Professor Bill Fraser

    Head of Norwich Medical School
