Stewart Goodwin

It is with great sadness that the University reports the death of Stewart Goodwin, a student in his third year of the graduate entry Joint Degree of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. Our thoughts are with Stewart’s friends, fiancé and family at this time.

Staff at Warwick Medical School and the local Hospital Trusts who knew Stewart are deeply saddened at his sudden and untimely death. Dr Paul Matthews, Clinical Years coordinator said “Without doubt, Stewart would not only have been an excellent doctor but, with his track record, developed into a leader in whichever clinical field he chose”.
