National Healthcare Weekend for Veterinary

These courses are ideal for students in years 10-12 or S3-S5. Parents are encouraged to attend and participate – usually making up half of the audience! The dynamic nature of the conference means that the course programme and speakers will be different at each event.  However, every conference offers a wealth of information and experiences from a range of Medic Mentors from different backgrounds, whilst ensuring that essential content is covered during the programme.

Dates and Locations

Stirling 2nd November 2019

London 23rd November 2019




Registration starts at 9.30am.  Course starts are 10.00am.  The course finishes at 5.30pm.  There are breaks at several points in the day.  The lunch break lasts 45 minutes and these are valuable opportunities to speak with the Mentors and ask questions.  We cannot provide lunch or refreshments as these are not allowed at the venues, so please bring your own packed lunch with you.  

Please note that the final programme will be emailed out to delegates 1 week prior to the course start date and they will be available to collect on the day.


Please note that we do not post tickets because people often lose them ahead of the conference.  Please bring a copy of your order confirmation which will be emailed to you automatically once you have registered for your places online.  

You will then receive a more detailed email about exact lecture theatres, parking etc. from admin roughly 2 weeks prior to the course start date as soon as the venue has completed their final IT testing in the rooms.


If you would like some advice before you register give us a ring on the Mentor Helpline number 01530 417299.  In order to maintain the integrity and enjoyment of aspiring medics, and their parents at National Healthcare Weekends, and to improve our robust safeguarding policy, all students under the age of 18, must attend with a parent/guardian or designated responsible adult.
