EDGE Hill Uni­ver­sity med­i­cal school has gained valu­able ac­cred­i­ta­tion as a Sur­gi­cal Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre from the Royal Col­lege of Sur­geons.

The med­i­cal body has granted the cen­tre ac­cred­i­ta­tion from July 2018.

The med­i­cal school will de­velop a new gen­er­a­tion of doc­tors who un­der­stand the needs of the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and can re­spond to, and drive for­ward, new models of care.

Train­ing un­der­grad­u­ate med­i­cal stu­dents from 2020, with a foun­da­tion year avail­able from 2019, it will pro­vide much-needed ad­di­tional doc­tors for the North West.

The med­i­cal school’s first in­take will be to the foun­da­tion year for medicine, start­ing in 2019.

The one-year course will pre­pare stu­dents to en­ter the five-year med­i­cal de­gree that starts in 2020.

The foun­da­tion year is for stu­dents from the re­gion who have A-lev­els in bi­ol­ogy and chem­istry but need to reach a higher aca­demic stan­dard be­fore they can start on a de­gree in medicine.

Ap­pli­ca­tions will be through UCAS with a dead­line of Oc­to­ber 15, 2018.
