University of Kent
Medicine involves long-term commitment and dedication. Our degree, at the Kent and Medway Medical School, offers you diverse career opportunities and experience to practice medicine across primary care, acute care, community and mental health settings, as well as the major medical and surgical specialities.
Kent and Medway Medical School builds on the existing high-quality clinical teaching and research strengths of both universities and is working in partnership with Brighton and Sussex Medical School for support and quality assurance purposes.
Throughout the programme, you focus on how you apply your learning to your clinical practice. You undertake placements in a range of integrated medical, surgical, primary care and community settings. You gain vital hands-on experience, develop clinical skills and learn to work in collaboration as part of a multi-professional team.
As part of our innovative, integrated curriculum, you learn in small groups and spend time with some of the best medical educators in their fields. You learn anatomy and physiology in a modern, well-equipped anatomy suite, using full-body dissection and sophisticated radiological imaging.
You can choose options in a wide range of other scientific and academic domains. It is also possible to take a year out and complete an additional degree as a intercalated degree, condensing a three-year BSc into one year. Alternatively, it may be possible to take an MRes or MSc with additional independent study.
