UCL Division of Medicine
The results of REF2014 announced in December 2014 show that UCL enjoys the greatest amount of “world leading” (4*) research in Medicine and Biological sciences. This was a tremendous achievement for the Division of Medicine, which led the return in Clinical Medicine for UCL.
This was the largest single part of the REF in the UK, comprising returns for 450 members of UCL staff (including 96.3% of eligible divisional staff and larger than the entire returns from 117 UK universities). In Clinical Medicine, UCL was ranked first in the UK (according to Research Fortnight's Power Rankings), a testament to our research strength in the Division of Medicine.
The Division has an exciting post-graduate MSc and PhD educational programme, and is closely involved in the teaching of medical students at UCL.
Professor Ian Zachary is the Interim Director of the Division of Medicine and Marion Atkinson is the Divisional Manager.
