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.
