Internship Overview

The Young Doctor Autumn Internship gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree work experience in Medicine, from the comfort of their own home.

You will experience the real-life work of a doctor, with opportunities to shadow a doctor on a simulated ward round and observe patient consultations taking place live in a London hospital. In addition, two whole days will be dedicated to medical school application coaching, with doctors training you on how to excel at every stage, including personal statements, applications and interviews.

You will also have the opportunity to network with our doctors and ask them all your burning questions, just as you would in-person. 

Join us for a truly unique experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university and job applications and set you up for a future as a successful doctor.
