Collaboration is a vital feature of medicine at Imperial.

The Faculty of Medicine is an outstanding, internationally recognised academic environment where the best scientists and academic clinicians work together to investigate the causes of ill health, discover new ways to beat disease and train the doctors, biomedical scientists and health professionals of tomorrow to become outstanding in their field.  

Partnership is key to ensuring the talent within our community reaches beyond our labs and lecture theatres to deliver benefits to people’s lives

We are proud of our track record in working with other faculties at Imperial, and in collaborating with local and global partners across health, industry, government and charitable sectors to achieve real advances in health education and care.  Our collaborative projects, shared strategic developments and planned co-investments enhance our work, provide access to unique skills for our partners and foster innovation and new opportunity.

The collaboration environment for medicine at Imperial is underpinned by:

  • innovative curricula with a clear focus on developing broad skills amongst our students
  • training and development programmes to nurture core skills amongst our staff for successful partnering  
  • strong structures for collaboration and translation, supported by effective schemes to pump-prime opportunity for new translational development
  • the drive and confidence to build novel multidisciplinary and pan-institutional interactions which have the capacity to improve health and wellbeing
