UK Hospital Work Experience
Designed for students aged 16-19 looking to study medicine at university.
How Does It Work?
Our UK hospital work experience course is a week long immersive medical learning experience that sees students take a hands-on role in simulated emergency situations in our London based NHS hospital. Students spend 3 days in our state-of-the-art simulation suite with our NHS doctors who provide a foundation of medical knowledge and clinical skills. Students are given up to 8 different medical cases with the Medical SimMan where they must work as a team to diagnose and treat each patient. Our doctors analyse each scenario and provide feedback for students. Students gain a real insight into the role and challenges of being a doctor as well as a foundation of medical knowledge.
Students also have two days that are classroom based where our doctors focus on the university application and personal development. These sessions cover everything from medical school selection to personal statements. All students also go through a mock multiple mini interview and are provided individual feedback.
