Gain Medical Work Experience in the UK’s Capital City – World Famous for Healthcare and Medical Schools.

During your stay with us, you will take part in work experience at several different hospitals and universities across London.

There’s not a lot of med school applicants that can boast that kind of work experience. Apply today and get a head start in your medical career. 

Enjoy London In Your Spare Time

There are so many things to do in London. A city steeped in tradition, where famous buildings such as Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament sit side by side with modern monuments, immaculate parks, stylish shops and delicious cafes. Hospital work experience is why you’ll join, but there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be an incredible experience, too!

Book this course

Our staff team can collect you from either London Heathrow Airport or Kings Cross Railway station. Alternatively, if it suits you best, you can choose to arrive directly at the accommodation.

After getting settled into your room, we’ll have a welcome briefing followed by a meal together at a restaurant close by.

After you have enrolled on our medical courses, you’ll gain access to your Premed Portal webpage, where you can read more extensive project notes and also let us know how you would like to meet up with the team.

WHERE YOU'LL LIVE

We want your stay with Premed Projects to be as enjoyable as possible. A huge part of the experience is sharing it with like-minded students, and after a long day of hospital placement, we want you to feel relaxed and at home.

We have a couple of different accommodation providers we use depending on the time of year you join us for your work experience.

 

During October and February Half-Terms:

  • Your accommodation is situated in central London near London Bridge
  • Located just a few minutes walk from the closest tube station
  • An ideal location for you to explore London with us 
  • Perfect spot to gain easy access to all hospital placements
  • Shared rooms, split up into boys and girls

We have arranged projects in London for several years now, and we find this accommodation an ideal base for the week.

  • Close to the city of London
  • Rooms during the summer are all private rooms with your own ensuite

We also have lots of communal space too, making for a great atmosphere. All rooms are simple but comfortably furnished, so you can be sure your free time outside your hospital placement is going to be every bit as enjoyable as your time spent within the hospitals.

Book this course

There’s nothing worse than being away somewhere where the food isn’t up to scratch, so we promise you’ll enjoy every mealtime with us.

 

Breakfast: 

Every morning, we’ll provide a continental buffet breakfast for you with fresh fruit, pastries, fresh juices, cereals and everything in between. This is available from 07:30 am each morning.

Evening Meals: 

We’ll take you to a different restaurant that we love each night, with choices ranging from Katsu curries, superfood salads, duck spring rolls, ravioli and more pizza choices than you can shake a stick at. 

During Hospital Placement:

When you’re working during the week, you’ll either eat in the doctors’ canteen if in a hospital, the student union if we’re at med school that day, or we’ll prepare you a buffet lunch fit for an aspiring medical student to eat!

Catering For All Dietary Requirements: 

If you have any dietary requirements, we’re more than happy to cater to them. We’re very used to having students requiring halal food, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free choices, so you’ll find a suitable choice at every mealtime.

YOUR HOSPITAL PLACEMENT TIMETABLE

Your exact timetable will be sent out to you around 2-weeks before your project begins. 

Here’s a sample below to give you an idea of how your week with us will look.

Sunday:

  • We’ll either collect you from London Heathrow Airport or Kings Cross Railway Station. Or, you’re welcome to arrive directly at the accommodation, your choice. 
  • We’ll give you a few hours to settle in and show you to your room, where you can get to know your fellow students.
  • At 6:30 p.m., we’ll have our welcome briefing. During the briefing, we will talk you through everything you need to know, from meal times to curfews and the all-important Wi-Fi password.
  • Then it’s time for our first family feast!

 

Monday:

  • Your first day is centred around applications and interviews for medical school. 
  • The day is run by doctors and medical students who go through everything you could possibly need to know about the application process. 
  • Covering the medicine personal statement, UCAT, as well as that all-important med school interview, you’ll finish today armed with everything you need to make a successful application to med school. 
  • We’ll also cover how to use the practical experience you’ll gain for the rest of the week to best affect your applications.

 

Tuesday:

  • Today you’ll be a doctor.
  • In a hospital in Central London, rotating around several stations, you’ll gain experience in taking patient notes, X-ray interpretation, venipuncture and suturing, amongst other skills. 
  • The day is led by current practising doctors and is a wonderful opportunity to really get stuck in and see if you have what it takes to be a doctor.

 

Wednesday:

  • Today you’ll have a unique opportunity to have access that no other med school applicant can, with hands-on experience in a London hospital, this time focused on Cancer research. 
  • In the afternoon, you will be able to participate in a super exciting practical session which is otherwise reserved for a very small amount of the university’s current medical students. 
  • We promise today will be an experience you’ll never forget.

 

Thursday:

  • The first step to saving lives is to become a qualified first aider! 
  • At the end of today, you will be certified for three years (that looks pretty good on your personal statement).

 

Friday:

  • You will learn all about palliative care today, spending the day with nurses and GPs in a private nursing home & hospice situated in East London.

 

Saturday:

  • It’s time to say goodbye. 
  • We’ll arrange your transfers to Heathrow, or escort you to Kings Cross station to make sure you get home safely, or you are welcome to be collected from the accommodation
  • Just like that, you’ve had an action-packed week exploring medicine, armed with all the knowledge you need to gain a place at med school, with a tonne of experience and references to back it up too.

Book this course

The UK team is headed up by the lovely Annie. There will be several project leaders taking care of you throughout the project as well as a dedicated night manager who is on site all evening. All of our project leaders are full-time members of the Premed team, and all 5 have been with us since 2016, so they’re very experienced. Together, they have overseen thousands of students joining us for work experience.

Additionally, there is 24-hour security and CCTV at the accommodation, so you really are well looked after. 

Don’t worry, though; we won’t cramp your style too much. You will have lots of time to socialise with your fellow students. But, it’s good to know wherever you turn, there’s sure to be someone on hand to ensure you have a safe, stress-free experience. 

It’s our aim to allow you to concentrate on your hospital work experience while we take care of the rest. Anyway, we like to think we’re a pretty cool bunch!
