On the Young Doctor Programme, a group of experienced doctors will immerse you in a series of interactive role-plays, simulations, seminars, and Q&A sessions, to give you an immersive experience of practising medicine. You will also be coached on how to maximise your chances of gaining entry into a top medical school.  Attendance will give you a competitive edge in the Medical School application process and a 'super-curricular' experience to add to your UCAS form.

Programme Format & Options:

The programme involves a mixture of interactive simulations, exercises and Q&A sessions. You can choose to attend this programme EITHER in-person (at UCL) OR online (via our state-of-the-art, interactive online platform). Both options are identical in content and are delivered LIVE by experienced professionals.

The in-person programme takes place in a UCL lecture hall. The online programme is almost identical to the in-person one. The one exception is suturing which is only done in-person for health and safety reasons. Instead of suturing, ‘Live & Online’ students will experience a patient diagnosis session. Both programmes offer the same opportunities to meet top professionals & boost your CV & UCAS form.

The in-person and online options take place on different dates; you can decide which one to register for. Full dates and locations are listed further down this page.
