(Q & A Session via Microsoft Teams)

3 December 2021


A Career in Medicine 

Open to: Students, parents, teachers and career advisors

Aim of Sesssion: 
Doctors from our Trust will give a brief overview of how they got to where they are
What life as a Doctor is really like
A chance for you to ask any questions about a career in medicine and application process

Following on from this, students that are keen to pursue a career in medicine will be invited to apply to our virtual work experience scheme, successful applicants will be paired up with a doctor and one of our patients to have a chat about what it’s really like to be in the NHS. After this, we will organise in-house work experience within the Trust. We hope that this will provide you with the knowledge and insight of what medicine is really about, and hopefully give you the experience that you need to excel in your medical school interviews!
