Doctor for a Day - Course for students applying for medicine
A day of practical hands on training by UK doctors to help students in their medical school application.
Learn clinical skills from doctors who teach at UK medical schools. You can use what you learn to demonstrate your commitment and motivation for medicine on your UCAS application and in your medical school interviews. In addition, you will find out what it takes studying to be a doctor.
We aim this course at any student from years 10-13. You will be taught by fully qualified doctors who teach students from UCLAN, Manchester and Lancaster medical schools. As well as learning new skills, you will gain an insight into what it is like in Year 1 of medical school. We are going to focus in this session on what medical schools term ‘circulation and breathing’.
