Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with the University of Buckingham, is a University Teaching Hospital. This allows us to attract, train and retain the best doctors.

This is an important step towards establishing the Trust as a first class centre of teaching excellence. The first students arrived on wards in May 2015 and a medical school building is under construction, which will create exciting opportunities in the future for all staff in the fields of clinical research and education. 

This exciting new phase will include opportunities for undergraduate and post graduate teaching, enhanced research facilities. A teaching and research background would be highly advantageous when applying for this position. 

We believe the continued growth of the hospital will allow us to expand and improve our services to offer the very best care to the people of Milton Keynes, and beyond.
