Why Study Medicine?


The Why Study Medicine session provides school students with the opportunity to learn about the importance of their GCSE choices, how they affect their future career paths and what careers are available within Medicine and healthcare. Students will take part in an interactive activity led by a member of staff and a trained Medical student volunteer. This activity will be linked to GCSE choices, career options within Medicine and healthcare and studying Medicine at university. School students will have the opportunity to question the Medical student about their experience of school, higher education and careers in Medicine.
