Subject Activity Strand Content

The hearts of local communities. The cutting edge of life-saving technique. The front lines of war. Thousands of miles above the Earth itself. The skills of a qualified medical professional really can take you anywhere.

In collaboration with experienced staff and enthusiastic students, each of our 5 sessions will focus on a new step in the journey to Medicine, from application to qualification and beyond. You will have the opportunity to learn about the practice of medicine from a variety of perspectives, gain insight into course structure and requirements, and start to explore the key skills that underpin every aspect of this incredibly varied, vibrant, and competitive field.

Our hands-on, interactive 5 hour sessions will take place in a variety of specialised teaching environments, allowing you to get up close and personal with our state-of-the-art teaching equipment and – best of all – the professionals whose working lives span the clinical, research, and teaching aspects of the ever-changing field of medicine.

Participation is key: by engaging fully in these sessions, you will have an exceptional opportunity to develop and refine many of the skills crucial for success in your future career in medicine.
