We are proud of our world-class medical school at Brunel which aims to prepare you for 21st Century medicine in a range of clinical and community settings. In particular, we will embed a knowledge and understanding of integrated care systems in which both physical and mental health care is increasingly delivered in the community, supported by advances in digital technology provision. We will produce doctors with the knowledge, skills, flexibility and patient-centred focus to practise medicine around the world.
