Let's excel in more than our studies. Let's excel in a future medical career.

We are proud to be training future doctors and Physician Associates as well as preparing students for other healthcare careers or developing skills and knowledge of qualified professionals in the sector.

Our courses are taught in Preston, Burnley and at the National Centre for Remote and Rural Medicine (NCRRM) at Westlakes, in West Cumbria.

State-of-the-art facilities include clinical skills laboratories with high fidelity clinical human simulators and human anatomy resource and learning centres containing new anatomical models, virtual dissection tables and VR headsets.

You’ll gain invaluable real-life experience with in-built and voluntary clinical placements in urban and rural NHS settings, as well as patient interaction through our volunteer patient group.

Our post-qualification courses allow students to convert previous CPD study into academic credits. Most courses can be studied part-time, with blended learning or are taught in CPD blocks, building to a higher qualification to fit with busy professional life.
