Warwick Medical School launched its series of Inaugural Lectures in September 2006 with Professor Jeremy Dale, Professor of Primary Care, and mainstay in the development of the School.

In keeping with tradition at many institutions, especially Medical Schools, Professors at the Medical School will each give an Inaugural Lecture. These lectures will provide an opportunity for members of the public, University colleagues and associates to learn more about the work undertaken in the Medical School and for the Professors to highlight their field of interest and commemorate their success to date.

The series of Inaugural Lectures consists of three lectures a term, usually on the third Tuesday of the month.
