Medicine has been taught in St Andrews for nearly 600 years but the approach to medical teaching and research is very much in tune with the new century. The School of Medicine is one of the first medical schools in the UK whose research facilities are fully integrated with the other sciences and key university disciplines including physics, chemistry, biology and psychology, offering an important new dimension to medical research and the training of new doctors. Multidisciplinary and collaborative approaches have been central to the continued success of medical research in St Andrews. Internationally recognised research programmes in various aspects of molecular medicine, psychology and community health sciences are currently being promoted and extended. Strategically planned new staff appointments over the next decade, and our move to new purpose-built research facilities within the new Medical and Biological Sciences Building will provide the infrastructure and academic environment to ensure the sustained development and expansion of medical research in St Andrews in the future.
