The Trust offers two four day Medical Work Experience programmes per year which supports individuals who are considering a career in Medicine. This programme is only open to post 16 students who are in receipt of their GCSE results and would meet the criteria to apply to Medical School.
Although subject to possible alteration, the programme below outlines a typical medical work experience schedule with some of the interactive activities which includes:
Basic Life Support
Shadowing doctors on the wards
Alongside our interactive sessions, there will be talks by specialists as well as two days shadowing Consultants, Doctors and their teams in a clinical setting, either on the ward or in clinics.
There will be no further Medical Work Experience offered for 2023. In September 2023 the application process will open for the 2024 programmes and further details of how to apply will appear on this page nearer the time.
Below you can see how a week of the Medical Work Experience Programme will be structured.
