Pathway Doctors
Minimum Age 14+
Duration Virtual

This course provides a 'virtual' work experience for those looking to apply to medical school. You will be introduced to the NHS before exploring the roles and skill sets of six different medical specialists. Along the way, you will also consider some of the challenges and wider issues doctors face.

This virtual work experience tool designed to provide some of the most important points you might have learnt in real-world work experience about being a doctor in the NHS. Vitally, the course also gives you opportunity to become familiar with reflecting on your experiences in order to make them as valuable to you as possible.

The six different medical specialties are explored using presentations, patient cases and quizzes. Each module focuses on common clinical situations that you might have encountered in real work experience and highlight important points related to being a doctor, such as skills and qualities. It is not designed to increase your understanding of science and medical theory.

This course is not designed to completely replace experience completed in the real world, but to provide an insight into medicine and being a doctor.

The content explored may supplement work experience already achieved and/or allow you to build knowledge in areas of medicine you may have not had access to. As such, this virtual work experience tool will help you make an informed decision of whether applying to medical school is right for you.
