Canterbury has two universities, the University of Kent and Canterbury Christchurch University and since 2020 has the new Kent & Medway Medical School which is hosted by both the universities. There are apprenticeship opportunities. We understand how important study leave is
to our doctors-in-training and our more senior colleagues and support all our learners to explore, achieve and maintain professional requirements.
Our hospitals offer excellent facilities for learning, with a state-of-the-art Simulation Centre, quiet places for study, library services to help you in your research, IT and wifi support as well as, of course, offering many centres of clinical excellence. The education centres across our hospitals are always available to provide space, facilities, educational activities and pastoral support with our dedicated medical education staff enthusiastic and willing to support your education and training. As one of the largest trusts in the country, you will have the opportunity to work and learn alongside many experts in their field across the full range of specialties. In addition, you will have the opportunity to benefit from learning and taking part in the active research and development activity across the organisation. If clinical leadership and management, medical education, strategic development, IT and digital transformation or developing a portfolio career is your thing, then East Kent has a wealth of opportunities. We have a thriving General Practice Programme which is fully supported by our local General Practices and offers a range of experience across remote, rural, urban and coastal settings and demographics.
