Dr Prathibha

A very warm welcome to you from Medical Education at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.

As Director of Medical Education for the Trust, I work with a large team to ensure that our undergraduate and postgraduate training programmes are of excellent quality and meet the every need of our students and junior doctors.

We are a large Trust and we take in 500 medical students per year, in addition to 390 junior doctors in training, and 158 specialty doctors and associates.

Our main aim is to treat every student and junior doctor as an individual person, and ensure that you are supported to achieve your goals in your chosen career paths. We also believe that it is extremely important for you to enjoy your job!

I hope that you find this website useful and will choose to come and work with us. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
