So you want to be a doctor?
As part of the UCAS application process it is extremely advantageous to have undertaken some work experience in a hospital / surgery environment. Sitting in on clinics and consultations may be beneficial, but does not introduce prospective medical students to the practical skills which form a major part of the medical practitioner role. The week long course we are holding next year attempts to address this issue by exposing you to a range of experiences in a controlled and supervised environment. You'll have the chance to;
- Visit theatres
- Attend clinics, ward rounds and clerk simulated patients
- Speak to doctors and medical students to gain an insight into medical training
- Enjoy talks from medical educationalists about training and applying to medical school
