Apparently new med schools will open up
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-43463358

No word on if they will offer a grad entry programme but should be interesting

So, to any prospective med students, would you be interested in applying to this new school?

Apparently the University of Kent and Cantebury Christ Church have been awarded funding to set up a new medical school in Kent (Most likely in Cantebury or Medway (or Both), with doors set to open in 2020).

So far the only details are that it will be co-owned by Kent and CCC (similar to Medway School of Pharmacy except with CCC instead fo Greenwich) and that they will be supported by Brighton and Sussex (thus likely to have similar interview process).

No word on if they will offer a grad entry programme but placements are expected to be throughout the county of Kent.

So, to any prospective med students, would you be interested in applying to this new school?
There are going to be 5 new schools.

Medicine is unusual imo as the snobbery/ reputation between places studied is much less.

There are several exciting developments just announced by HEE including 5 new med schools of which Kent and Canterbury is just one.

In September 2018 Anglia Ruskin will open its doors to 100 students, University of Lincoln will admit 80 in 2019, University of Sunderland will admit 50 in 2019 followed by another 50 in 2020, Edge Hill will have an intake of just 30 in 2020 and, of course, Kent and CCC have 100 places for 2020.

Other Med Schools undergoing massive expansion are Exeter, Plymouth, UEA, BSMS, Hull York, Sheffield, Lancaster and Queen Mary. There is an extensive list too of other schools awarded more modest but significant increases.

If I were having my time over again (I graduated in 1991) I would be very excited to join one of these new or expanding Med Schools: the GMC has exercised great discretion in deciding where to award the extra Medicine places and these establishments must demonstrate really innovative and progressive features of contemporary Medical education...

Exciting times for applicants...
