Aspiring Medics Sixth Form Programme 2020

An inspiring 5-day medical career programme for year 12 students

The programme aims to inspire our future medics to follow their career aspirations, highlight the vast opportunities within medicine and help gain places on their chosen university courses.

The programme will provide an insight into the medical profession through a series of structured activities including:

  • Tailored workshops by medical experts
  • Clinical placements including hospital and GP surgeries
  • Local Medical School visit
  • Introduction to the Medical School application process and interview techniques

The 5-day programme is aimed at lower sixth form students who are serious about wishing to pursue a career in medicine and who are also academically able to achieve the grades necessary to enter medical school.  It is accepted that it is advantageous to students applying for a place at Medical School through UCAS to have undertaken some work experience or voluntary work in a hospital or general practice environment.
