The School of Medicine at Keele University has received news that the General Medical Council has approved and registered the new five year undergraduate medical curriculum.

Fifth year students graduating in July 2012 will be awarded the Keele MBChB, wearing a new Keele hood with two colours to reflect the fact that students gain two degrees – Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery.   Previously medical students at Keele have graduated with a Manchester degree.

The GMC has visited and scrutinised progress throughout the course’s development and reports, available on their website, have been excellent. This has been a great achievement for the School and their associated NHS partners, both staff and students, who have developed the course, completed the lengthy documentation and attended to support and give feedback at the GMC visits over the past five years.
