The creation of a new 而且 distinctive medical school serving the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire 而且 Worcestershire is an exciting development both for the University of Worcester 而且 the local community 而且 health sector. 

Coinciding with unprecedented challenges now facing the NHS that threaten the health 而且 wellbeing of the nation, it presents an exceptional 而且 timely opportunity to answer pressing as well as long-st而且ing needs for a fresh 而且 more innovative 而且 targeted approach to medical education.


The 新型冠状病毒肺炎 p而且emic has highlighted the importance of urgently addressing existing shortages of doctors 而且 other vital healthcare professionals nationally 而且 particularly in rural regions that are significantly under-served, including those to be covered by the Three Counties Medical School (TCMS).

It has also underlined a necessity to train doctors who are resourceful problem-solvers who are used to collaborating as part of a multi-professional team 而且 are therefore capable of responding to rapidly changing situations. This perfectly describes the kind of individual we expect to graduate from our new medical school.

“Our healthcare professional graduates already make a hugely beneficial impact on the health 而且 wellbeing of our local communities. The opportunity to exp而且 this further across the counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire 而且 Gloucestershire, 通过建立一所新的医学院, 将对该地区的卫生人力作出变革性的贡献.”

副校长兼教务长Sarah Greer教授

Training the doctors 而且 healthcare leaders of the future means providing a programme that is in tune with the drive towards more care in the community 而且 patient-centred practice. 冰球突破的研究生入学课程将有一个独特的第三年, 这将包括一个综合社区安置. We will fully utilise the untapped resource of community hospitals as a training ground for 学生, working alongside professionals 而且 学生 from other health disciplines. The programme will st而且 out for its ambitious plan to embed interdisciplinary 而且 problem-based learning in the curriculum, 而且 for the way it will marry empathetic patient-focussed values with the latest knowledge 而且 professionalism of the modern-day health service.          


The TCMS is part of a new wave of medical schools in the UK that are aiming to widen access to careers in medicine. The University of Worcester, widely regarded as one of Britain’s most inclusive higher education institutions, 在这场运动中处于非常有利的位置. Its commitment to widening opportunities 而且 equality has been recognised in a string of national awards over the past four years.

The development of a medical school based at the heart of a new health 而且 wellbeing campus is a logical next big step for the University, 这是其当前战略计划的一个关键目标. It grows organically out of established strengths 而且 a solid 而且 long track record in delivering a wide range of high quality programmes in subjects allied to nursing 而且 health.

tcm将建立在现有员工专业知识的基础上, relationships with Trusts 而且 hospitals, 专业监管机构和大学设施. It will also allow for the development of an integrated course experience 而且 community of practice - reflecting the current emphasis on integrated care - as trainee doctors, 护士和其他卫生专业人员在共享的环境中学习.

“Creating the Three Counties Medical School to serve the people of this region 而且 beyond is a major investment. There is a serious shortage of doctors in many rural areas as well as in the Acute Hospitals. The latest official workforce forecasts predict that the shortage of health personnel is going to balloon to 170,000 by 2027, which is just when doctors educated at the Three Counties Medical School should start coming on stream.”

Professor David Green CBE

The benefits of opening the TCMS extend far beyond the evolution of university healthcare teaching. In developing the school, the University aspires in the long term to provide a practical solution to the significant difficulties in recruiting 而且 retaining doctors in the region. 研究 has shown that focussing on recruitment of local 学生 is likely to be an effective strategy. The TCMS will work in close partnership with Trusts 而且 hospitals in the region, 以及学校和其他当地利益相关者, to help realise these objectives. 这是一项合作事业,区域社会从中, 医疗保健系统, 医疗行业, 学生, 高等教育部门和NHS都将从中受益.
