The Hull York Medical School is a different kind of Medical School. The joint medical school of the Universities of Hull and York, we have a reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting, contemporary schools. Our innovative curriculum and focus on problem based learning and early and sustained clinical exposure ensures that students on our MB BS programme develop the problem solving, analytical and communication skills and resilience needed to deliver a high standard of care to people with complex needs and from a variety of backgrounds. The School is currently undergoing expansion following a successful bid to expand the number of undergraduate medical student places. We aspire to being sector leading in our approach to mental health, building on a great heritage in mental health research at the University of York.
The purpose of the role is to support the development and delivery of the new Masters in Mental Health Research and to support the development and delivery of mental health within our Medicine and Physician Associate curricula.
The MSc in Mental Health Research will include two new bespoke mental health modules combined with existing Health Science modules and a dissertation by publishable research paper.
Within the MB BS, issues relating to mental health first appear within our ‘Health and Society’ theme and the Psychological Medicine Block in Year 1, and are developed in Problem Based Learning scenarios and clinical placements, with specific mental health placements in Phase II of our programme (years 3 and 4). Our ethos is to give students an understanding of the interactions between physical, psychological and social as the determinants of health and illness.
