Library

An excellent library is at the heart of KMMS, it will inspire students to be curious and support them to value, respect and make confident use of evidence and knowledge throughout their medical careers. Through its world-class collections, the KMMS library will be the beating heart of learning, research and innovation for health improvement in Kent and beyond for many years to come.

Donors may choose to support acquisitions of key books, e-books, databases and journals that enhance KMMS library collections relating to major conditions, for example, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and mental health.  The resources in our library will help support the learning of the doctors of tomorrow, assisting them to become world-leading scholars and researchers.

Examples of funding required:

Online subscription to RX Bricks£20,000 per year group

An online resource with interactive modules year 1 and 2 students can use to learn the foundations of medicine to complement the teaching they receive from KMMS.

Journal Subscriptions£7,500 per title

Connect our medical students with the most recent, highest quality research, thereby equipping them with the knowledge to deliver cutting-edge, evidence-based care by supporting the acquisition of a single or combination of journal subscriptions in a chosen research field for five years.

Bookplates£250 per book

Have your name recognised on a core text or monograph within a subject area of your choice. (This might be an e-resource).
