The University’s College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences is committed to a research-driven curricula and an innovative approach to teaching. The Teaching and Learning Centre adds to our dynamic learning environment, providing access to state-of-the-art resources, world-renowned lectures, and programs that prepare our graduates for exciting careers across the whole spectrum of the medical sciences.
The Teaching and Learning Centre provides a world class training environment for the clinical years of undergraduate medical and nursing degrees and postgraduate students studying health-related disciplines. The four-storey building houses three floors devoted to learning and teaching, as well as social and public spaces. Key facilities include a 500-seat auditorium conference space, teaching spaces, learning resources centre, a teaching laboratory and clinical skills facilities. The Clinical Skills facilities are the best in the world and give undergraduate students an unrivalled opportunity to learn and practice clinical skills in a multi professional environment.
The top floor of the building is home to Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre, a University of Glasgow-led, Scotland-wide collaboration with industry which is developing ‘precision medicine’ – advanced diagnostics and precise treatments for individuals across a wide range of diseases. Nearby our £5M Clinical Research Facility is ensuring the hospital is at the forefront of clinical trials of new medicines. The adjacent Imaging Centre of Excellence, opening in 2016, includes a 7 Tesla MRI scanner, an ultra-high resolution scanner which will be the first of its kind on a clinical site in the UK, and world-leading clinical academic expertise in stroke, cardiovascular disease, and brain imaging.
