Medical Projects is an education focused company that provides amazing learning experiences for students. We believe students learn best when placed in immersive learning environments, and these experiences in turn help them make informed decisions about their career path.
From this simple ethos we create residential and day courses that are highly interactive, educational, informative and inspiring whilst also creating opportunities for students to travel, gain life experience and meet like minded people.
All of our courses are run by passionate and inspiring people that we have carefully selected for their qualifications and their approach to our vision of delivering amazing learning experiences for students. Our HQ is based in the North East of England in Newcastle upon Tyne and we run courses both in the UK and overseas in fantastic locations such as Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.
