The Medical School Today

Pre-clinical teaching is based in the Stopford Building in Oxford Road, Manchester for the first two years. Clinical teaching takes place over three teaching 'sectors' or NHS trusts in Greater Manchester: Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (incorporating the Manchester Royal Infirmary, Saint Mary's Hospital for Women and Children, and the Children's Hospital, opened in June 2009); Salford Royal (Hope Hospital); and the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust in Wythenshawe; and one in Lancashire, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Preston). Some of the students who have completed their pre-clinical education at the University of St Andrews School of Medicine join students who have completed pre-clinical years in Manchester to do their clinical years together.

Famous quotes containing the words today, medical and/or school:

    In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    As we speak of poetical beauty, so ought we to speak of mathematical beauty and medical beauty. But we do not do so; and that reason is that we know well what is the object of mathematics, and that it consists in proofs, and what is the object of medicine, and that it consists in healing. But we do not know in what grace consists, which is the object of poetry.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    By school age, many boys experience pressure to reveal inner feelings as humiliating. They think their mothers are saying to them, “You must be hiding something shameful.” And shucking clams is a snap compared to prying secrets out of a boy who’s decided to “clam up.”
    Ron Taffel (20th century)
