The Young Doctor Weekend


The Young Doctor Weekend gives students aged 15-18 a chance to test-drive life as a doctor. Learn from top doctors as they guide you through a series of interactive activities: learn to suture a wound, examine patient X-rays and discuss diagnoses. You will also be coached on how to get a place at a top medical school, with expert guidance on how to excel in applications, interviews, the UCAT & BMAT, and more.

You can attend either in-person in London or live online. Register now to gain an edge over other aspiring doctors, and a super-curricular experience to add to your university application.
