The University of Southampton has been commended for the delivery of its Medicine training programmes following a five-yearly review by the General Medical Council (GMC).

The report highlighted a number of areas in the University's Medical programmes that are working well, including the high level of student engagement with the medical school and how the student experience has been improved following feedback.

Commenting on the review, Professor Diana Eccles, Dean of Medicine at the University of Southampton said: "We are delighted with the outcome of this review by our regulator, the GMC, and very grateful to our university staff, colleagues in University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust and our many other placement providers across the region, and our students, who contributed to this positive process."

The university has a reputation for expertise in research for patient benefit and in 2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Medical School at Southampton.

Since its inception the school has trained thousands of doctors and clinical academics, delivering expertise, medical leadership and care across a range of health related areas.
