Get Into Medicine Insight Conference
Having listened to our hundreds of school partners, we are delighted to launch our Get Into Medicine Conference for Years 9 to 12, delivered on site at your schools.
We know how important it is for students to start preparing early to secure a place at medical school. In fact, according to new research, careers education given to pupils in secondary school can be linked to higher earnings in adult life – read more in this BBC report.
This Get Into Medicine Insight Day is an opportunity for students in secondary school to get in-depth insight and information about careers in Medicine, often at a key time in their decision-making process for future subject choices. The day will inspire and inform students about the history of medicine and the role of doctors, as well as offering valuable information on allied healthcare professions and medical work experience.
What will the Insight Day cover?
Attendees will learn about:
- The history of Medicine
- The role of GPs and of doctors in hospitals
- Allied healthcare careers and the Multi-Disclipinary Team (MDT)
- Problem-Based Learning (PBL)
- Undertaking medical work experience
The in-house conference provides the following benefits:
- Can be booked around your school calendar
- You can join with other local schools to host the day
- Will help your students confirm if medicine is for them
- Ensures your students will be on the right track early on
- Provides insight into the key components of the application process
Where applicable, we are happy for parents to attend so they can support their child through their application as effectively as possible.
Insight Day: Testimonials
“Many thanks for the Insight Day. The feedback has been extremely positive. Marie was an excellent presenter and we are looking forward already to booking you in for next year!”
Head of Careers, Ipswich School
“Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend the healthcare insight day. I found it exceptionally helpful and really gained a greater insight into the healthcare application processes. I particularly found the personal statement section very useful as it gave me a great starting point for writing my own. Doctor Nordstrom delivered a great presentation and also answered all the questions that I had.”
Student, Berkhamstead School
