Brunel Medical School
Brunel’s Quad North building is the home of the Medical School - located in the heart of the campus close to all the main student amenities. The newly refurbished 2nd floor features state-of-the art learning and teaching facilities.
The Medical School includes:
Anatomy Centre. A brand-new facility created to enable the learning and teaching of anatomy in an environment that embraces modern technology while keeping human specimens as the key learning resource. The anatomy suite houses plastinated specimens that display a wide range of anatomical structures and features, from whole bodies to isolated organ systems. You will work in teams and study the human specimens under the guidance of teachers with scientific and/or clinical backgrounds. There are also radiologists guiding you through the assessment of clinical images obtained through a range of modalities such as X-rays, computerised tomography scans, MRI and ultrasound.
Two Clinical Skills Laboratories. Clinical skills learning and teaching will cover all key skills that you will need at the start of your clinical career: basic infection control practices, measurement of vital signs, checking blood glucose, venepuncture, cannulation, suturing, injections, examining eyes and ears and basic life support.
Student Support Office. This is the first port of call where you can go whenever you have a query about the School, the course, the University or your well-being. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are available to answer queries and to direct you to the most suitable on-campus support system.
- Virtual ward and simulators. Physician Associate students have access to our virtual ward and simulator suite in the Mary Seacole Building.
Team-Based Learning (TBL) Studio. Our state-of-the-art TBL studio is situated close to the Medical School building. The studio is designed specifically for TBL with high-tech sound and visual equipment strategically placed around the learning space. We use customised round tables to optimise student engagement and interaction, and the learning is enhanced by the use of TBL-enabled software. Please note that Physician Associate students have access to smaller TBL rooms on campus.
