Hi @muzreached,

Congratulations on your excellent academic achievements and work experience! :biggrin: You have an incredibly strong application, and I am confident that you will be successful in gaining a place at medical school.

Kent is a great choice for medical school. We offer a world-class medical education, with a focus on clinical skills and patient care. We are so proud of our graduates who go on to have successful careers in medicine, and we are also really proud at our record of producing excellent doctors.

I just want to mention a few of the things that Kent can offer you:

A state-of-the-art medical school campus in Canterbury. Our medical school campus is home to a variety of teaching facilities, including a clinical skills center, a simulated hospital ward, and a dissection room.
A strong focus on clinical skills. Our medical school curriculum is designed to give you the skills and knowledge you need to be a successful doctor. You will have plenty of opportunities to practice your clinical skills in our state-of-the-art facilities and in our clinical placements.
A supportive and inclusive learning environment. We are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive learning environment for all of our students. We understand that medical school can be a challenging experience, and we are here to help you succeed. (Personally this is my favourite, our professor's are dedicated to teaching, as well as researching - not just one or the other. This is perfect for both students who may either be falling behind, or who want to understand more about modern approaches to medicine!)

Plus, Kent is located just over an hour from London by train, which (luckily for us) makes it a convenient choice for a student like you!

We would love to see you at one of our open days on the 7th of October for Medway and the 14th of October for Canterbury campus. I can't stress enough that is a great opportunity for you to learn more about our medical school, campus, and to meet our staff and students.

In the meantime, I would encourage you to visit our website to learn more about our medical school. :smile:
You can find the link here: https://kmms.ac.uk/

I know that you would be an invaluable asset to our medical school community, and to our university as a whole!

We look forward to seeing and hearing from you! :biggrin:

Warm regards,
