About the Ron Grimley Undergraduate Centre


The Ron Grimley Centre for Undergraduate Medical Studies was first opened to our medical students in August 2005, providing them with a specialised centre here at the Trust. On March 14th 2006, the centre was officially opened by Dean of The Birmingham Medical School, Professor William Doe.

The new centre was named in honour of the late Ron Grimley as a tribute to his work and commitment to medical education.

We normally have around 130 Birmingham undergraduate medical students at any one time in the Trust. The majority of these are clinical placements in 3rd, 4th and 5th years, but we also support 2nd year students on their "Hospital Preparation course".

The Trust also has a number of students from other disciplines and medical schools (although they are not based at the undergraduate centre). We use a wide variety of teaching methods, including traditional lectures, seminars, study days, bedside teaching and simulation sessions. Our students also have access to a fully equipped clinical skills lab and medical library.

In addition to the undergraduate teaching here at the Trust, we also host and administer 5th year OSCE Exams as the regional centre for Birmingham Medical School.


Head of the Academy - Mr Atiq-ur Rehman


Mr Rehman was appointed as Head of Clinical Teaching Academy in 2010 following his initial appointment as Clinical Sub Dean for Russells Hall Hospital, and worked as Mr Grimley's junior at various stages of his career.

Like his predecessor, he has also worked tirelessly to deliver high quality undergraduate education in the organisation.
