Kent was, until now, the largest county in England without a medical school, but with an acute shortage of doctors and significant problems in healthcare recruitment and retention.

KMMS opened in September. It is a collaboration between the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University and offers a five-year BM BS programme with placements in Primary, Community, Mental Health and Secondary Care setting across Kent and Medway. Its objectives include opening opportunities for talented students from all backgrounds to study medicine and to help meet the future health needs of a large population.

Dr Philip Chan (Lead for Admissions) will talk about how the admissions process has supported widening participation in medicine and the effect of the new medical school in Kent.

Guest Speaker: Dr Philip Chan
