2. The Extended Medical Degree Programme at King?s College London (EMDP) It is a six-year medical degree, integrated with our 5-year programme Totally equivalent to our five-year programme ? same exams, same pass mark, no concessions It started in 2001, with 10 extra HEFCE places Number of places increased by 10 a year until 2005 ? now constant at 50 per year Currently there are 306 EMDP students studying at King?s

5. Geographic eligibility Applicants must have attended non-selective state schools or colleges in ?eligible? boroughs Originally, there were 5 ?eligible? boroughs, then 10, then 15 From 2009-10, all the London boroughs, Kent and Medway are ?eligible? areas There are currently about 350 eligible schools

6. Academic eligibility Applicants must have GCSEs in Science, Maths and English They must also have 3 A2s (or equivalent) including Chemistry and one other science subject at A2 level Standard offer = BCC

7. Schools attended by EMDP students The worst school is 51% below the national average The average school score is 15% below the national average (a typical independent school is 50% above the national average)

8. EMDP - Admissions Process UCAS form UKCAT PQA test (MAT score) Extended, semi-structured interview From 2009-10, MMI

12. Ethnic origin of King?s medical students 2002 ? 2008

13. Ethnic origin of EMDP vs. UK medical students 2008

14. How does the Extended Programme differ from the conventional one?

15. EMDP Structure Induction phase Pre-clinical phase Clinical phase ? exactly the same as conventional course

16. EMDP - Pre-clinical phase Takes three years (50%, 70%, 80%) Lectures and tutorials with conventional students Extra EMDP-specific sessions

17. Additional EMDP support during pre-clinical phase Academic ? literacy, chemistry, numeracy Financial ? bursaries, key text-books, prizes, stethoscopes Pastoral ? EMDP adviser, DT room, Celebration of Success

20. Academic Progress (i) 351 EMDP students to date Students from the first 3 cohorts have now graduated The overall retention rate is 86%

21. Academic progress (ii) Each year, about 10% of EMDP students come in the top 15% of the whole year group, and receive merit awards 40% of EMDP students are doing intercalated BSc degrees and 83% of them have been awarded First Class or Upper Second degrees The average A levels of those awarded Firsts was CCC

22. Academic progress (iii) Two of the four clinical prizes for Year 3 in 2008-9 have been awarded to EMDP students (420 students in total) But ? the EMDP results are not normally distributed ? they are bi-modal

23. Evolution of the EMDP The first year was originally summative ? then formative ? now summative again Banding of A level offers in line with school scores Induction week content Writing & Discourse Critical reading and thinking

24. Conclusions (i) Students can succeed at medical school with BCC at A level ? but only if these grades were achieved at poorly performing schools WP students, on average, require extra pastoral support WP students require help with ?deeper learning methods?

25. Conclusions (ii) Given a supportive environment ? WP students can become excellent medical students ? and impressive doctors
