Medical Education at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust


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 all the needs of our students and junior doctors.

We are a large Trust and we take in more than 500 medical students every year, in addition to more than 750 junior doctors, including those in training and specialty doctors.

Our main aim is to treat every student and junior doctor as an individual, and ensure that everyone is  supported to achieve their goals in their 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.
