Medical Education Research

We have a dedicated team focused on research within and applied to the MBBS programme.

Your educational journey

This research programme considers the entire educational journey of medical students. We examine the student experience as they progress through education and begin work as qualified doctors.

We work alongside our Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia colleagues. We're exploring issues of internationalisation of medical education.

We work with the MBBS quality management team to align our research and with routine quality management activities.
