About the school

Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to the School of Clinical Sciences. We are one of the largest Schools at the University of Bristol, with over 350 staff based at multiple sites in Bristol. We take pride in research and teaching excellence, striving to provide a supportive working environment for our diverse and valued staff. We offer opportunities for flexible working, encourage our staff to consider their career development regularly and see equality of opportunity as placed at the root of our success.

Our research delivers pioneering treatments for patients and groundbreaking discoveries in basic science across a wide range of clinical fields such as neuroscience and endocrinology, cardiovascular sciences, musculoskeletal conditions, and infection and immunity.

The school's research-intensive environment underpins an extensive range of high quality teaching programmes attracting large numbers of high-calibre students at undergraduate and postgraduate research level each year.

Key alliances with the NHS, the pharmaceutical industry and other institutions translate our research expertise into clinical science and practice.
