The University of Wales College of Medicine
Established 1931
Location Cardiff

The University of Wales College of Medicine was a medical school based in the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, that formed a part of the University of Wales. It was also known as UWCM and by its Welsh name Coleg Meddygaeth Prifysgol Cymru.

UWCM was founded in 1931 under the name the ACADEMY OF MEDICINE Welsh National School of Medicine and changed to UWCM in 1984. In 1988 the college merged with University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology


UWCM worked in partnership with the University of Wales, Cardiff for many years, but remained as separate institutions. This changed however, on the 1st of August 2004 when they merged to form Cardiff University and broke away from the University of Wales. The five former schools of UWCM are now part of the Wales College of Medicine, Biology, Life and Health Sciences and are collectively referred to as the Wales College of Medicine. Medical degrees will begin to be awarded by the Wales College of Medicine from the 2005 intake, until then degrees are being awarded under the University of Wales College of Medicine name.
