About

History

Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) is an equal partnership between the Universities of Sussex and Brighton together with NHS organisations throughout the South East region. The arrangements for the School's governance reflect this approach and students are awarded joint BM BS degrees of both Universities.

Education

The School is fully committed to the principles of Tomorrow's Doctors; we endorse the value of medical education in a multi-professional context, and promote the highest possible standards in our teaching, clinical practice, and research (both fundamental and applied).

Research

The BSMS 5 year strategic plan (2009-14) placed growth in research capacity as the number one priority. We have made significant investments in research infrastructure, including a world-class Clinical Imaging Sciences Centre (CISC) housing a 1.5T MRI and a PET- CT scanner and a Clinical Investigation & Research Unit (CIRU) dedicated to patient-orientated research and early clinical trials. There has been a rapid increase in postgraduate research students and research income has more than doubled over the last five years.

Career

BSMS offers an Academic Training Programme aimed at doctors who are considering an academic career in medicine. The programme is jointly overseen by BSMS and Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex and in close collaboration with the relevant partnership NHS Trusts (Brighton and Sussex University Hospital Trust and Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust).
