The College of Orléans opens the Division of Medication at first of the 2022 tutorial 12 months

The University of Orleans will open the Pass sector at the beginning of next academic year. A way to supply the region with doctors.

The University of Orleans did not have a medical training department until this year. To enter the Pass (Specific Health Access Course), the students of the academy had to go to study in Tours. This Friday, June 3, the Board of Trustees of the University of Orléans amended its statutes to open the Department of Medicine for the beginning of the academic year 2022-2023. The new Pass sector will offer 105 places at the beginning of the 2022 academic year, and in the long term the university plans to graduate 200 doctors a year. A much-needed contribution in the Center-Val de Loire region, which is most affected by the phenomenon of medical deserts.

In addition to the new Pass course, the University of Orleans plans to increase the existing Health Access License (LAS) course by 95 places. “The aim is to open the second year of medicine at the beginning of the academic year 2023-2024” explains Eric Blond, president of the university. The University of Orléans then opens a new academic year each year. The opening of the second cycle of medicine is planned for 2025, when HCERES will evaluate the first cycle. The medical department could then become a full-fledged medical faculty.

The reception capacity of the new sector will gradually increase in the coming years. The second year, which will open with 50 seats in 2023-2024, should offer 100 in 2024-2025. The University of Orléans will eventually graduate from 200 students. At the universities of Tours and Orléans, 550 new doctors complete their studies every year, compared to the current 300.

The creation of this new training was announced by the Prime Minister on 19 April 2022. It is based on the recommendations of the report of the General Inspectorate of Social Affairs and the General Inspectorate of Education, Sports and Research. The director, chosen from among the researchers involved in the training, will soon be appointed by the president of the university.

The 1st year will go to Tours for intensive tutoring

From the beginning of next school year, the courses will take place exclusively in Orleans. Much of this will be available on video. As in Tours, first-year students in Orleans will benefit from the tutoring provided by second- and third-year students. Lecturers from the universities of Tours and Orléans will not necessarily work with students from their university, but will be able to follow the first years in one or the other of the two facilities. During the intensive tutoring period, which will continue to be organized for 15 days each year, students from both universities will meet at the Tours campus.
