Improving the region's health and wellbeing
We're working to enhance health quality, patient care and wellbeing for local people through the longstanding relationship between Sheffield's medical teaching, the city's hospital trust and other partner organisations.
National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine
The University of Sheffield is proud to be one of a number of partners within the National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine's (NCSEM) Sheffield Hub, which aims to support increased physical activity and improved health and wellbeing across the region.

Developing socially accountable doctors of the future
The Medical School’s unique Social Accountability programme gives medical students the opportunity to volunteer in local communities across South Yorkshire - giving support and working with people who need their help the most.
