The Postgraduate Medical Education Centre

University Hospitals Plymouth

Plymouth's Postgraduate Medical Centre’s (PGMC) main aim is to support Medical Education at University Hospital Plymouth NHS Trust.  Due to unique way the centre was funded the Centre building is not owned by Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust. It is owned and run by a registered charity.  This has helped to enforce the ethos behind the development of the centre which is to provide a facility which exists for the purpose of delivering medical education teaching and courses.

We have a vision: To be a beacon of excellence in postgraduate medical education. We aim to be a hub of innovation and continuous improvement, collaborating with stakeholders and experts from across the UK - The golden rule for the centre is ‘Education is our priority’.

For opening times and more information on using our Centre please refer to the "Using our facilities" page
