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,

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.
