Young Doctors Summer School (In-Person)

The Young Doctors Summer School offers an introduction to the world of medicine for younger students. This Summer School is structured so that more academic sessions are interspersed with fun and enjoyable activities which are designed to test and apply the theoretical knowledge gained.

As well as mini-lectures and seminars, students will take part in role play and case study scenarios, where they take the role of practitioners and consultants – diagnosing and recommending treatment options. There will also be experiments, group work and quizzes on each day.

This summer, as well as the online weekend course, we will also have a four-day in-person event which will cover the following areas:

Dealing with Patients * Cardiology * Suturing and Trauma * Radiology * Neurology * Psychiatric Medicine * Paediatrics * Medical Ethics

See a detailed schedule for this course here.

The Young Doctors Summer School is perfect for any child aged 13-14 who is curious about medicine as a career. It offers a great insight into life as a junior doctor, and will inspire students for future study.
