Cardiff has unveiled a new approach to training and retaining doctors in Wales.
Marking the biggest transformation of Cardiff University's medical education programme since its School of Medicine was founded in 1921 the new curriculum aims to cultivate world-class doctors by introducing more community centred learning.
Studies show that medical students who train in underserved areas are more likely to return there to work after graduation.
Professor John Bligh, Dean of Cardiff University's School of Medicine said:
"Ultimately our goal is to modernise teaching with a view to producing world-class clinicians who want to live and work in Wales for the benefit of Welsh patients, and we hope the community-centred learning experience that this curriculum offers will encourage this."
Under the new curriculum, students will be introduced to community-based learning in their first year to ensure early patient contact. Cardiff University School of Medicine is responsible for the graduation of 300 student doctors annually.
