Academic Summer: Medical Studies in London
The Medical Programme is an intensive two-week science summer school, tailor-made for students who want to study medicine. This interactive and innovative summer school program is designed and led by UK medical students who can share and advise from their own personal experiences.
This course will involve 40 hours of concentrated teaching per week including opportunities to experience and visit real clinical settings and pioneering medical research facilities. Students attend a clinical workshop led by a doctor. Students have medical related trips and will join the Academic Summer leisure programme for some weekday and two weekend trips. In addition to enriching the medical knowledge, we aim to further develop students´ interpersonal skills including teamwork, leadership and communication.
The medical programme includes the following:
- First Aid qualification
- Medical related trips including a visit to a medical school
- Visit to a London hospital and medical research facilities
- Teamwork, communication and problem solving workshops
- Medical ethics
- Clinical workshop with a doctor
- Clinical scenarios
- Biology and Chemistry practicals including a heart dissection
- Personal statement and interview practice
- UKCAT and BMAT
During the summer school programme, students will carry out an individual science research project that will involve you giving a presentation, writing an extended essay and developing your IT skills. Students will learn about the importance of getting the right work experience as well as being introduced to BMAT and UKCAT so they gain an understanding of how to apply to study medicine in the UK.
Summer School study groups contain a maximum of 15 students.
