Medical Education at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust


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

As the Director of Medical Education for one of the largest trusts in the country, responsible for the education and training of over 500 medical students and over 700 postgraduate doctors-in-training each year, I depend on a large and dedicated team. It is our role to ensure that our undergraduate and postgraduate training programmes are of excellent quality and meet the needs of our students and doctors. It is by doing so that we will develop the doctors of today and tomorrow that are so crucial to our NHS and contribute to making East Kent a vibrant, safe and exciting place to learn and work. We can only do this by listening carefully to our students, doctors and educators and we pride ourselves on doing so.

Every student and doctor learning, training, developing with us should be treated as an individual and supported to achieve their own professional objectives in their chosen career paths, paths which are increasingly diverse in today’s medical workforce. I believe that East Kent offers significant opportunities for people at every stage in their journey towards becoming a doctor and I hope that you find this website useful. I also hope that you will choose to come and learn and work with us.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
