Aston University has announced plans for a new medical school in Birmingham; the Aston Medical School (AMS).
This is expected to open in 2017 and will cater for 100 medical students per year. A research institute – the Aston Medical Research Institute – is to focus on vascular disease, women’s health (such as pre-natal conditions and problems during pregnancy) and age-related illnesses.
