Hull York Medical School wins international accolade in its 10th anniversary year

The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) has won a major international award recognising its excellence in medical education in its 10th anniversary year.

Presented at the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) international conference in Prague, the award was for social responsibility and accountability.

HYMS was the only UK medical school - and just one of eight international medical schools - to be recognised for their excellence in the awards which were presented in three categories - assessment of students; student engagement in the curriculum and in the medical school; and social responsibility and accountability as a mission of the medical school.

The awards – the first to be made under AMEE’s new ASPIRE initative – were presented in front of over 3, 000 people attending the conference and watched by participants from 26 countries online.

The ASPIRE programme acknowledges the importance of teaching alongside research as a mission of the medical school. Submissions were reviewed by teams of leading international authorities in each category.

Dr David Pearson, Deputy Dean (Education) at HYMS who received the award in Prague, said: “We were thrilled to receive an AMEE Aspire to Excellence award in the category of social accountability, especially during our 10th anniversary year. The award was made on the basis of HYMS' commitment to help develop excellent healthcare in our region, though high quality education, support for service and locally relevant research initiatives.

“The ASPIRE panel commented particularly on the balance of our educational programmes, with a high proportion of clincial placements in community and primary care settings (at 33 per cent ahead of any other UK school) and our early successes with HYMS' alumni now taking up substantive medical jobs in our local health care economy.”

HYMS is a partnership between the Universities of Hull and York and the NHS. Founded in 2002, it provides 21st-century training for the next generation of doctors as well as a hub for cutting-edge healthcare research. Students experience clinical placements throughout their course, spending time equally in hospital and community settings.

Dr Pearson added: “It was particularly pleasing to win an award in such prestigious company – other award winners in our category were the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Canada and the Southern Illinois School in the United States, both of whom have well established and impressive community outreach programmes. Other ASPIRE award winners included the International Medical School, Malaysia and Aga Khan, Pakistan.”

Canada vs. United States

by --

Around 45 million people in the United States don't have any insurance at all -- so they, too, could die for lack of medical care. (To put that in perspective, the entire population of Canada is around 33 million.)
From what I can see, housing costs tend to be lower in Canada even in the most expensive areas like Vancouver, Toronto and Alberta (compared with the high-rent areas of the United States,) If you have kids, Canada has good colleges and universities, with steep discounts for residents of the province.
As for work opportunities, that seems to vary depending on what field you're in
