Who Completes A Pre-Medical Placement With Us?

Our Pre-Medical Placements are designed for any student applying or reapplying to medical school. Students are typically aged 16-19 years old and are wanting to pursue an advanced career in healthcare. Post-graduates and elective students are also welcome to apply.

Learn From Current Medical Students & Doctors

Our UK Doctors and Medical Students design the curriculum for the mock interviews and clinical skills sessions. There is no other organisation that provides this level of mentorship and training from qualified NHS Doctors or Medical Students. We always have at least one UK Medical Student on each project as a minimum. Where possible our UK Doctors also join our projects but this is subject to their schedule and availability.

Your Hospital Work Experience

Students complete 25 hours hospital work experience per week. Students shadow a local doctor or consultant in each department, who will explain cases and procedures. Groups of students don't exceed five as we want this to be a personal experience with plenty of time for you to discuss cases with the medical staff. All our mentors are experienced teachers and speak English. Here are some of the departments you can spend time in.

  • General Surgery
  • Paediatrics
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • Oncology
  • Intensive Care Units
  • Radiology
  • Dermatology 
  • Nephrology
  • Orthopaedics 
  • Pathology
  • Tropical Diseases/Medicine
  • Ophthalmology
  • Casualty
  • Gastroenterology
  • Respiratory Medicine
  • Anaesthesiology 

Interview Workshops & Clinical Skills

We run at least 2 mock interview workshops each week that are designed to simulate certain aspects of medical school interviews. Each session is concluded with some general feedback and then more detailed individual feedback. Here are our typical interview workshops:

  • Multiple Mini Interviews 
  • Panel interviews 
  • Group ethical debates
  • Individual 1-on-1 interview technique sessions

Throughout the week we run mini clinical training sessions that are designed to help students understand some basic anatomical functions. These are fun and interactive ways to learn some of the basics of medicine. Here are some of the different examinations we teach:

  • The body's pulses
  • Cardiovascular examination
  • Respiratory examination
  • Abdominal examination
  • Neurological examination

Meet Your Mentors

Our mentors are current UK Medical Students or current Doctors. These guys are there to help support you inside the hospital and also provide the interview and clinical skills sessions. Our UK medical students all have at least 2 clinical years training and have all been through the process you are about to. They are there to provide all the advice and guidance you need, so make the most and ask them as many questions as possible.  If you want to find out a bit more about them, click the "Meet the Mentors" button.

"One of the best parts about the course was that not only did we get hospital work experience, but the organizers also managed to cram a ton of information regarding medical ethics, interviews and general advice."

"Medical Projects allowed me to get invaluable work experience in India. I saw a whole range of specialities in the hospital from orthopaedics to general medicine to oncology.  I can't recommend Medical Projects enough!"

Shadowing doctors, I learnt about parts of medicine that I was not aware of before. The mock interviews conducted really helped me get an insight of the actual interview that is required for entry into medicine.
