Why not "this is a medicine school" ?
It's just not what it's called in English. It's called a medical school.
------- in the us , it's called a med school or school of medicine . . .

Indeed, why "this is a medicine school" is not correct?

I put 'a medical school' and it was not accepted
works dec 2020
Accepted July 2021
They do not translate correctly . . .
I have seen en medicine as well as de medicine used. Is there a guideline when to use either ?
it's a medicine school/school of medicine?
No, it's a Medical School/School of Medicine.
It's often abbreviated to Med School, but I doubt if Duo accepts the abbreviation.
I wrote "It's a medical school." I'm actually surprised they accepted that when I read their translation!
School of medicine is fine, though it would probably be more usual in everyday speech to say a medical school. You would not say a medicine school.
