Increasing Medical Student Numbers in England, 2001. Report.
Higher Education Funding Council for England, Bristol.
This report provides information on the further allocation of additional medical student numbers in England from 2001-2002 and explains the decision making process underpinning these allocations. A report by the Medical Workforce Standing Advisory Committee in December 1997 concluded that a substantial increase in medical school intakes was required to meet the future workforce needs of the National Health Service. In the previous allocation exercise, some 1,129 new medical places were allocated through a 3-phase process that included establishing two new medical schools. In July 2000, the Government stated that it was seeking an additional 1,000 medical places, which were allocated by competitive bidding. It is expected that the majority of additional student intake will take place by 2006. This report provides details on the medical student allocation process. Five attachments (annexes) contain supplemental information about the process and the places allocated. (SLD)
