History of the Centre
Medical education research at Durham University dates back to the opening of Queen's Campus, with research centred around delivery of the Phase 1 undergraduate curriculum.
Research activity was given a boost in 2010 with the transfer from the NHS of the Northern Deanery's team of full time researchers. With a track record of research influencing policy and practice in postgraduate education at a regional and national level, this addition broadened the resources and expertise available for the development of research in Durham.
In 2012 the group was recognised with Centre status by Durham University. This provides a strong base from which to continue to conduct world class research and make Durham an internationally recognised centre for innovation in medical education.
