At Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS), we are committed to inspiring future healthcare professionals by raising aspirations, supporting young people’s choices and encouraging progression into medicine or health related careers. We want to encourage aspiring doctors from all backgrounds to seriously consider medicine as a career. We are committed to widening access to medical degrees and have ambitious targets to recruit students from Kent, Medway and further afield, who have the talent and desire to study medicine, and are from under-represented groups or disadvantaged backgrounds. To further enhance our Future Doctors Outreach Programme, KMMS works in collaboration with our partner institutions, Canterbury Christ Church University and University of Kent.
The Admissions Team is live on Instagram (@kmmsmedschool) stories every Wednesday between 12:00-14:00 to answer any questions you have

Future Doctors: School Visits Programme (Year 7 – 13)
The KMMS Future Doctors team are delighted to visit local secondary schools to talk about careers in medicine and the application process for medical school. We hope to inspire students to study medicine who may not have otherwise considered it as an option as well as to support them to make the right GCSE and A-level choices to allow them to pursue their ambitions.
In line with our widening participation mission we prioritise visits to Canterbury Christ Church University Partner Schools and University of Kent Partner Schools.
To find out more about our visits and invite us to your school please email email@example.com
Through the excellent and informative outreach work from KMMS we now have students who are very excited about medicine and understand their next steps

The programme includes an in-person launch and graduation wrapped round a series of online sessions that are based on the KMMS curriculum and go through topics such as Heart, Lung and Blood; Health and Disease; Neuroscience and Behaviour; Immune System; and many more.
