...with our medical school recognised virtual work experience
Virtual Work Experience Day
Being a doctor is an amazing career, but the road to getting there is challenging and the first step is getting into medical school. Work experience is the cornerstone of any successful medical school application, as it allows you to demonstrate a commitment to medicine as well as a mature understanding of what being a doctor is really like. However, it can be difficult to organise, especially given the current pandemic.
The Medset ‘Doctor for Day’ Virtual Work Experience is recognised by medical schools and will provide you with an experience that you can use in your personal statement and at interviews to demonstrate that you have all the qualities needed to be doctor.
The experience is hosted online and is run by experienced doctors and surgeons who will give you a behind-the-scenes look at what a career in the NHS is like, and what medical schools are looking for from future doctors. Over the day you’ll be taught real clinical skills, like examining, diagnosing and treating patients, and reviewing blood tests and scans. Alongside this you’ll also be taught about the different types of doctors and health professionals, and about how the NHS works.
If you’re considering a career in medicine or applying to medical school then our ‘Doctor for a Day’ experience is perfect for you. You’ll understand the realities of being a doctor, and you’ll be able to reflect on the experience in your personal statement and at interview – one of the key things that medical schools look for when deciding who to offer a place.
Places are limited so secure yours today and get the experience you need to get into medical school.
