Aberdeen University Medical School is the medical school in the College of Life Sciences and Medicine at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.Medicine has been taught at the university since the founding of King's College in 1495. Indeed, the university has been described as the first medical school in Scotland and even the English speaking world. Nevertheless, this assertion has been called into question as medical teaching already existed at St. Andrews, Oxford and London and even as late as 1787 there were calls "for the establishment of a medical school" in Aberdeen.In 2013 the Medical School had an annual intake of 168 students and 20 of these came from outwith the UK.DivisionsThe School of Medicine and Dentistry is made up of three divisions: Division of Medical and Dental Education Division of Applied Health Sciences Division of Applied MedicineUnits Centre for Rural Health Dugald Baird Centre for Research on Women's Health Health Economics Research Unit Health Services Research UnitLocationsToday, the school is based in the newly built Suttie Centre for Teaching & Learning on the Foresterhill site in Aberdeen. Undergraduate placements are mainly in hospitals but also in general practice and community settings. The variety of placements offered, both within Aberdeen and in other locations in the Highlands and Islands, allows students to gain experience of both inner-city medicine and to see how healthcare is delivered in areas far removed from large teaching centres.
