Ages 15-18 •
Live Online OR In-Person
The Young Doctor Weekend gives students aged 15-18 an immersive experience of Medicine through a series of role-plays, seminars, simulations and Q&A sessions led by a group of medical professionals over 2 days. You can choose to attend the programme either in-person or ‘Live Online’.
Attendance will give you an edge over other aspiring doctors in the race for the best jobs and a ‘super-curricular’ experience to add to your university or college application.
* For the in-person programme, students will perform suturing as their afternoon practical. This includes a live practical demonstration by a surgeon. Students will then stitch up a wound on a banana. For online programmes, students will do the patient diagnosis exercise instead. This involves reviewing blood tests and patient consultation notes
This programme is for students aged 15-18. No prior knowledge or experience is required. The programme involves a mixture of interactive simulations, exercises and Q&A sessions. You can choose to attend the programme either in-person or ‘Live Online’; the content is the same for both.
'Live Online’: £165/student for both days
In-Person: £165/student for one day (you can choose either day 1 or 2) OR £295/student for both days

We do not anticipate any Covid-related issues preventing us from delivering the in-person programme. Any government guidance on Covid-related safeguarding (such as the wearing of masks and social distancing) will of course be adhered to. We have managed to successfully deliver in-person programmes during the Covid-19 pandemic (including during the summers of 2020 and 2021), with excellent feedback. We are therefore highly experienced in giving students a fantastic experience even with social distancing rules in place.
In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will have two options: i) move to the next in-person date; ii) move to the ‘Live Online’ version of the programme you selected and be refunded the difference in price. (If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full).
