Probably. Some people call a university that offer medicine a 'medical university'. Medical school = medical college (tho this tends not to be an English expression) = place that teaches medicine. Usually part of a university offering lots of different courses.

med colleges in britain tend to be army, since its an international reference terms that the army use being truely globally.

in this context then, they are usually postgrad in this country (army dont train you as medics, they train established staff).

Actually I do believe I am talking ********! I should revise my original post and say "medical college is not a UK expression anymore"! :o: It was in the past when they were standalone.

A college more often refers to the professional (royal) college - Royal College of Surgeons (England), Royal College of Anaesthetists, College of Emergency Medicine, etc.

Is it only applicable in UK? How about globally?
