Dean, Faculty of Health, Social Care & Medicine

Welcome to the Faculty of Health, Social Care & Medicine, one of the largest providers of health and social care education in the North West of England and home to the new Edge Hill University Medical School.

We offer a wide range of undergraduate courses, from nursing and operating department practice to nutrition,  child health and counselling. Whatever your subject of interest, we aim to support you through all stages of your career from undergraduate study and gaining workplace experience, through to continuing professional development and postgraduate study.

Whilst the Faculty’s main base is at Edge Hill’s Ormskirk campus, we also have bases at Aintree University Hospital, St James’ Manchester, and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. The Faculty’s Postgraduate Centre at Aintree Hospital has undergone a complete refurbishment to provide a dedicated base for health and social care professionals undertaking professional development study.

2019 saw the launch of the University’s Health Research Institute, a partnership between Edge Hill University and regional health professionals and providers seeking to improve the quality of health and social care in the North West through education, research and innovation.

There are plenty of opportunities to come and visit the Faculty – at an open day, evening public lecture or one of the many national and international conferences we host.
