The Faculty of Medicine, Warwick Medical School, was established in 2000 and is making significant national and international contributions to education and research in health.
The Faculty is based largely on Gibbet Hill campus, overlooking Tocil Wood. Although Warwick Medical School (WMS) does not offer undergraduate degrees in medicine, it is the largest graduate-entry medical school in the UK, offering a range of postgraduate and continuing professional development programmes in subjects such as child health, diabetes, health sciences, medical education, public health, and dentistry.
