Working at WMS


Warwick Medical School is one of the UK's leading medical schools, with a reputation for excellence in research and teaching.

We employ high calibre people in many fields, including academics, teaching and research staff, administrative staff, and professional support staff. We welcome staff and students from all of the world with diverse backgrounds and experience.

One of our key teaching strengths is the number of academics we have still working in their chosen clinical speciality alongside their teaching commitments. This ensures that they bring up to date knowledge and experience as well as first rate teaching experience.

Our research is excellent due to the calibre of our researchers working across the fields of biomedical sciences, health sciences and clinical trials. The university's rich research environment and our regional, national and international partnerships enable us to carry out ground breaking, impactful work.
