In September 2019, the University of Lincoln welcomed its first medical students to the Brayford Pool Campus as part of an exciting collaboration with the University of Nottingham to offer medical education in Lincolnshire.
Lincoln Medical School aims to deliver medical training to 80 students each year, building on the many new healthcare related programmes – including nursing, physiotherapy, and midwifery – introduced by the University of Lincoln in recent years. In addition, a foundation programme designed to widen access to medical study will offer 15 students an alternative pathway into the study of medicine.
Until now, Lincolnshire has been the largest English county without a medical school, without the ability to train its own doctors. That is set to change. The creation of a new medical school will be transformational for Lincolnshire. The Medical School aims to inspire young people from local schools, give them more opportunities to train as doctors, and encourage them to remain in the area once they have qualified.
The Medical School is set to make a huge difference to thousands of people’s lives – and you can be a part of it.
The University of Lincoln has embarked on an exciting collaboration with the University of Nottingham to offer medical education in Lincolnshire. Students can now apply to study for the University of Nottingham's Medicine BMBS degree based in Lincoln, taught by academic staff from both universities.
