Our Medical Careers Day is run by current doctors and medical students. Being a doctor isn’t all Grey’s Anatomy and House. It’s worlds apart from what students may envisage the career to be. We’ll present a warts and all insight into life as a doctor, from the hours you’ll work as a junior doctor, to pay and career prospects.
Here’s what takes place on the morning of our online Medical Careers Day:
We’ll discuss all the various areas of medicine you may choose to pursue. You may be thinking of medicine as a career, but we bet you’ll be amazed at all the different branches of medicine you could specialise in.
In the first part of the day, we’ll go through exactly what you must do to apply to med school. Beginning with what subjects you should take at GCSE/A-level and the grades required, we’ll map out your route to medical school.
Next up is writing the perfect personal statement for medicine, what to include and what to omit, so you’ll know how to use your 47 lines wisely. The medicine personal statement is your first major test when it comes to applying, so our team will show you have to secure that invitation to a med school interview.
We will then cover the medical school interview, your last barrier to getting that place in medical school. We’ll go through the set-up of the interviews, how to prepare for them and exactly what to expect from each one.
Doctors and Medical students will then explain how to approach the UCAT and BMAT examinations by breaking them down and teaching you exactly what you need to know for the best chance of success.
Finally, we’ll cover medical work experience, an essential must-have for applying to medical school, and how to go about securing some experience that will impress.
Our current medical students will answer all your questions and tell you about their experiences in med school. We don’t want to put you off, but we do want you to make the decision to study medicine with all the facts so you can decide if you will be up for the challenge.
