The museum's aim is to enhance the experience of students and staff at the University of Manchester. It is promoted as a resource for teaching and research. The museum takes an active role in city wide events including Manchester Histories Festival in order to engage the wider public and communities.
The collection consists of medical and nursing equipment, instruments, apparatus and some archival material, but does not include any anatomical or pathological specimens, which are housed in separate departments.
