Leeds Institute of Medical Education

We are a multidisciplinary institute that, through scholarship, research, innovation and partnership, aims to enhance the practise of medical education globally. 

We lead a number of degree courses, including the prestigious Leeds MBChB degree as well as an intercalated BSc in applied health sciences (medical education), an MSc in child health, and a range of high-quality professional development programmes for medical educators.

The Institute is also involved in conducting and evaluating original enquiry and research, while working with partners in academia, the health professions, the public, policy makers and commercial organisations. This reflects our commitment to helping move the discipline of medical education forward through collaboration.
