About us

Leicester Medical School was founded in 1975.

Our state-of-the-art George Davies Centre (formerly the Centre for Medicine) was opened in September 2016. At £42 million, the Centre is the largest investment in medical teaching and applied research by any UK university in the last decade. It was designed to help to meet the demand for more capable and caring doctors and also to house applied research that will be at the forefront of improved patient safety and the fight against chronic disease.

We were the first UK medical school to adopt a one-iPad-per-student programme at undergraduate level, and are one of the few UK medical schools offering full-body cadaveric dissection.
