Our Mission

Making decisions about university and your future career can be really difficult – not everyone knows exactly what they want to do in future!  Our aim is simple – we want to give young people interested in medicine a real insight into what studying the subject is like and what being a doctor involves, so they can decide if it really is for them.

Furthermore, a crucial part of any medical school application is work experience – applicants should have made the effort to find out about their future career. We know how difficult it can be to find work experience in hospitals, so we designed this course to help tackle the problem – we’ll give you a real insight into a career in medicine that will help strengthen your application to medical school!

Learn about a wide range of medical topics, and how to apply this knowledge to patients in different settings.
Understand how to communicate with patients effectively, and learn how to perform physical examinations with a stethoscope!
Learn how to suture wounds and how to perform first aid and CPR – all important practical skills that doctors use every day!
Why Should I Attend?
Gain an authentic, in-depth experience of a career in medicine and make an informed decision about whether medicine is for you.
Strengthen your application to medical school and stand out from the crowd.
Expert advice from our tutors about applying to medical school – ask any questions you might have!

One of the main benefits of our courses is that students will go home having had many new experiences, which they can write about on their personal statements and talk about during medical school interviews. On top of this, our tutors are very experienced in this area and will be more than happy to answer any questions about applying to medical school on the days of the courses.

How many courses do you run?

We currently run two different themed courses – ‘Future Physicians’ and ‘Budding Surgeons’. These are designed to complement each other, however it’s entirely up to you whether you’d like to attend both or just one. If you do choose to come to both, you have the option of attending both on the same weekend (one on Saturday and one on Sunday) or on different weekends, and we’ll also give you a £13 discount.

We accept payments via PayPal (Paypal is the largest online payment processor and offers you the highest online security). You don’t need an account – they accept all major credit and debit cards.

What if I can’t attend a course that I’ve booked?

We will happily give you a full refund as long as you email us at least 14 days before the course to cancel your place. If you cancel any later than this, unfortunately we will not be able to refund your payment, however there are other options. We can arrange to transfer your place on the course to another student (if you know someone else who would like to attend), or alternatively, if you are able to make it to a our course on a different date and there are spaces available, we will be more than happy to offer you a place on a different date.
