Welcome to the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health


It is my great pleasure to introduce you to the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health at the University of Sheffield. Formed in 2008, the Faculty brings together clinical and health-related subjects across a broad combination of disciplines and expertise. Together, our Faculty includes:


• The School of Clinical Dentistry • The School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR)


• The Department of Human Communication Sciences


• The Medical School • The Department of Cardiovascular Science • The Department of Human Metabolism • The Department of Infection and Immunity • The Department of Neuroscience • The Department of Oncology • The School of Nursing and Midwifery.


We have developed an exciting environment of learning, research and clinical activity to tackle some of the major diseases and problems facing society today. Our collaborations in teaching and research span the continents and staff and students travel far around the world, applying and expanding their knowledge. We are committed to an ethos of excellence – in learning and in patient care – and we contribute comprehensively and wholeheartedly to the University’s guiding principles: achieving excellence; cultivating ambition; working together; protecting the future; making a difference and leading the way.


Our schools and departments encompass a broad spectrum of expertise, enabling us to examine problems in new ways and to tackle important societal questions from a strong position. By bringing our research experts and acclaimed educators together, we offer the potential to develop new interdisciplinary approaches to teaching and research in response to national and global health questions and needs. The breadth of our expertise also enables us to look holistically at health conditions and find new answers to these problems.


We are intrinsically linked to the NHS and are proud of our extensive collaborations with health partners, providers and policy-makers regionally and nationally. We are committed to ever-stronger partnerships with organisations at the forefront of health research and policy to extend the reach of our life-changing work.


The Faculty’s work makes a positive impact on people’s lives by addressing the biggest health challenges facing our country, our health service and our world today. I hope that you enjoy reading about our work and that you will feel inspired to work with us on these major challenges.


Our mission is to be a health sciences faculty distinguished by excellence in: • learning, teaching and the student experience;


• internationally leading research and its translation into practice;
