Manchester - Manchester Royal Infirmary
The school is based in Central Manchester at Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI), which is closely linked geographically and professionally with the Manchester Cytology Centre, St Mary's Hospital, Royal Eye Hospital and the Dental School. It is part of the Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University Hospitals NHS Trust, which also includes the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital (RMCH) at Pendlebury. The Children's Hospital will soon be located on the MRI site, which is now in the final phases of being rebuilt. The trust is the sixth largest NHS trust in the country and has both a District General Hospital function and a high level of tertiary referrals from adjacent trusts. The hospital is situated immediately adjacent to the University of Manchester, where the Medical School is at the forefront of current innovations in research and medical education.
The Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST combined on October 1st, 2004 to be called the University of Manchester. The University traces its origin to 1851, following a grant by textile merchant John Owens. Medical training in Manchester was founded in 1814 by Charles White and later by Joseph Jordan. The Medical School was officially opened in October 1874 by Thomas Huxley as part of Owens College. http://www.man.ac.uk
