Academy of Medicine

To become a medic is one of the most challenging, but rewarding career paths anyone can choose to take. It requires great knowledge, application and constant learning. Our programme will help you understand some of these challenges whilst introducing the core subject knowledge required to study medicine at university, combining theoretical knowledge with practical laboratory work to explore areas such as infectious diseases, immunology and herd immunity, neuroscience and the role of technology in medicine. Masterclass lectures with medics and surgeons will provide an insight into a life dedicated to medicine and what it takes to succeed in this highly demanding field.

On this course you will:
• Receive expert tuition in the classroom and laboratory to explore key subject areas for medicine.
• Develop insights into the different branches of medicine to help plot your career path for the future.
• Take part in one-to-one tutorials to assess your academic study path and signpost super-curricular activities to support your application to study medicine at university.
• Watch online surgery with professional medical commentary to understand the realities of life as a surgeon and experience the life-and-death decision-making that is required.
• Review real-life case studies and notes to develop diagnostic skills.
• Join seminars on UCAT, BMAT and medical interviews to help you to prepare for these in the future.
• Meet with practising medics to learn about a life in medicine and gain insight into the challenges of the profession.
• Visit a top UK medical school and meet with tutors to learn more about studying Medicine in the UK and how to gain entry to the programme.
• Visit an Oxford or Cambridge University college.
