The Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) is a collaboration between Canterbury Christ Church University and the University of Kent. It builds on the existing high-quality clinical teaching and research strengths of both universities and is working in partnership with the highly regarded Brighton and Sussex Medical School for support and quality assurance purposes.
KMMS is a new medical school and the BM BS programme is subject to successful progress through the General Medical Council's quality assurance programme. For the most up to date information please visit the KMMS website, www.kmms.ac.uk.
Our innovative, integrated curriculum, delivered by expert teachers, uses person-centred approaches to develop understanding of people and population health needs. You gain hands on experience in service-learning modules delivered within the communities of Kent and Medway and beyond.
Medicine is challenging, mentally, physically and emotionally as doctors need to combine expert clinical skills and confident decision-making with compassion, dedication and commitment to improving lives.
At KMMS, we want to attract talented students from all backgrounds to take up that challenge and help us to transform the future of health care. We are looking for resilient students with personal qualities that a good doctor requires as well as academic ability.
Application deadline details:
Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.
I have loved my 3 years at Kent. It really does feel like a family. The campus is amazing (especially if you like rabbits), there is lots of places to relax, study or socialise. The facility's are all in great condition and well thought out. Plenty of opportunity to get involved in extra things such as clubs, work, volunteering etc. Like any family it has its problems (mainly communication) but this is something they seem to be working on and the enthusiastic caring lecturers make up for it.
