Kent and Medway Medical School
Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) is a new medical school that aspires to educate and inspire the next generation of Doctors. KMMS’ BMBS degree is jointly awarded by the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University. The five-year course takes an integrated systems-based approach that will prepare its students for patient-centred Medicine.
KMMS delivers a curriculum that utilises a range of pedagogies and learning activities. In year one, skills for clinical practice will be developed to prepare students for the clinical environment. Students will also experience a ‘Community and Primary Care in Practice’ module that offers an overview of the professional care and services that support patients as well as carers within the community.
In year two, students will build upon skills and modules from year one and also learn about various systems such as the nervous and reproductive system.
In year three, students will begin their clinical foundation course and will aim for students to consolidate and build their clinical skills and knowledge. Clinical rotations include Medicine and Surgery and well as Elderly Medicine and Psychiatry.
In year four, specialist clinical rotations are introduced so that students can develop their understanding of the patient care delivered in each speciality. An individual research project is also undertaken in order to increase a student’s ability to understand and apply research methodology.
In the final year, regional attachments begin in order to enhance clinical diagnostic and management skills. This is to lead the transition towards becoming a junior doctor.
