In 2021, there are 44 Medical Universities in the UK. However, that includes some Medical Schools that are not on this list. These provide either graduate-entry courses or postgraduate courses only.

Some of them are well-established, such as Oxford, Cambridge or Edinburgh, and some are very new, including Kent and Medway or Edge Hill.

There are big differences between them, starting from the admission requirements to the teaching styles they use to deliver the course itself and, of course, the location. However, you have to keep in mind, that regardless of where you get your Medicine degree from, you will always become a doctor. Based on this article from GMC, it does not matter what medical school you go to. An Oxford graduate and a Kent and Medway graduate will both end up going through the same process and earning the same starting salary if they decide to do the same speciality.

However, it matters what medical school you go to if you want to do Masters or study for a PhD after finishing your undergraduate Medicine course in the UK.
