Brighton and Sussex Medical School • Brighton, United Kingdom
Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) is a medical school which was formed as a partnership of the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex, which means that each student is a member of both universities. The school is fully committed to the principles of Tomorrow's Doctors (an initiative by the General Medical Council, outlining the role of practitioners in the UK). BSMS works closely together with NHS organisations throughout the South East region. Ever since its foundation in 2003, the school has trained more than 1 000 new doctors that are now in employment in the UK. Due to its partnerships, students are awarded joint BMBS degrees of both universities. The university accepts about 150 undergraduate students per year. Due to its popularity, BMBS has one of the highest application rate of medical schools in the UK. Students spend the first two years of their studies on the universities' Falmer campus. The third year focuses on hands-on training in teaching hospitals and community settings in Brighton and surroundings. The school has purpose-built teaching facilities in all areas. Graduates of BMBS are valued because of their knowledge, gained through the high-level training (including clinical practice and research) provided by the university.
