Review of objectives

Aims and objectives

Our 1998 Memorandum and Articles of Association set out the Academy’s four objects: to promote excellence in medical research and in the teaching of medical sciences; to promote the application of research to the practice of medicine and to the advancement of human health and welfare; to promote public understanding of the medical sciences and their impact on society; and to assess issues of medical science of concern to the public and to disseminate the results of such assessment.

The objects are delivered under the Academy’s six priority programmes, as set out in our Strategic Plan 2012-2016:

  1. Promoting excellence
  2. Influencing policy to improve health and wealth
  3. Nurturing the next generation of medical researchers
  4. Linking academia, industry and the NHS
  5. Seizing international opportunities
  6. Encouraging dialogue about medical science
