Future Doctor Summer Experience

The Ultimate Work Experience in Medicine

Overview

We are now over 70% full for this Summer Experience and expect to close registration soon.

The Future Doctor Summer Experience gives students aged 12-14 a 360-degree, fully-immersive experience of working as a doctor in London. 

Over the course of two weeks, students aged 12-14 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of medicine that one can imagine: learning cardiopulmonary resuscitation, reading and interpreting blood test results, taking a patient’s history and recommending treatment

Also available on the Summer Experience are a diagnostic ‘escape room’, and a full day dedicated to ‘Personal Career Coaching’.

Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful doctor.

Our team are security-vetted (enhanced DBS-checked) professionals who work in education full time and our team is made up of Academic Professionals / LSA, Safeguarding Officers, Nursing Professionals, and Mental Health Practitioners.
