Welcome to Kingston Education Centre
KEC was established in 2019 by Kingston GP Chambers (KGPC) in order to meet the need for undergraduate student placements in primary care settings. We have partnered with local universities, including Kingston University, St George’s Medical School, St Mary’s Twickenham University, Imperial Medical School in order to support the training of nursing, pharmacist, paramedic, physician associate, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and medical students.
Incorporated into our teaching approach are our inter-professional learning sessions which allow students the opportunity to work and learn together, benefitting from viewing patient care from the perspective of peers with alternative approaches and skills. This is an innovative approach has gained significant interest from other teaching bodies and is currently the subject of a research project funded by HEE.
KEC runs a dedicated training facility at 157 New Malden High street (above the former Village Surgery) in New Malden, where we provide GP consultation appointments, observed by students, for any patient registered with a Kingston GP practice.
Students that have a placement at the Kingston Education Centre must register on this website and submit the pre-placement documents prior to their placement.
