Information for General Practitioners


On the 12th June 2014 Aston University announced plans to launch a new medical school in Birmingham. Aston Medical School will be located at Aston’s city centre campus and will take its first students into the MBChB programme from September 2018 (subject to regulatory approval).

The development of Aston Medical School offers an exciting opportunity for GPs to take part in a unique educational initiative, with the ambition to widen access to the medical profession and train students taken from hard to reach local communities.

We are currently recruiting practices to host medical students for the community health section of the curriculum. 

As community health is a core component of the undergraduate curriculum, GPs will be integral to teaching and research. 

This is an opportunity for GPs to:

  • be involved in educating a new breed of doctors, a proportion of whom will be from schools with a high index of deprivation in the West Midlands. 
  • engage in teaching and research in relevant areas of interest
  • upgrade surgery premises towards provision of teaching for medical students
  • acquire honorary research positions with Aston Medical School 
  • be part of a new and unique educational initiative
If this sounds like something that you or your practice might be interested in, please register below and we will get back to you with more information.
