Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine / Acute General Medicine

The Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine (NDM) is part of the Clinical School in the Medical Sciences Division of the University of Oxford.

Led by Professor Chris Conlon the Department contributes to the teaching of 320 medical students in the Clinical School and provides one third of the clinical support of acute general medicine in the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Clinicians work in the John Radcliffe, the Churchill and Horton Hospitals. The Department also contributes to orthopaedic medicine at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.

Students in Acute General Medicine will have the opportunity to study alongside Oxford clinical medical students in their first and final clinical years. This provides the chance to follow medical patients throughout their hospital stay from acute admission in the new Emergency Department, through the Emergency Assessment Unit to the wards and finally as outpatients. As a major teaching hospital a wide range of general and specialist input is provided as well as maintaining a strong scientific, evidence based approach to clinical medicine.
