National Healthcare Weekend for Medicine

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. An example of one of the talks is shown in the video below, just to highlight the unexpected challenges and determination needed to succeed.

Timings

The timings are the same for both days:

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 thethe 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.

Tickets

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 our venues have completed their final IT testing of the rooms.

REGISTRATION

If you would like some advice before you register give us a ring on the Mentor Helpline number 01524 389772.  

We also take child safeguarding very seriously, so if you are considering attending alone, please ensure that you have completed the parental consent form (only for students over 16 years old)

Register for Days 1 and 2 'Weekend Family Option'

For the best experience, we strongly recommend that students and parents attend both days and acquire all of the information that they need to make a successful application to medical school.  Medic Mentor provides the most comprehensive UCAS application course that exists and it is taught by a group of experienced doctors and medical students who have successfully made it through themselves.  The knowledge gained from the course goes far beyond anything that you could read from a textbook and it is designed to equip the most eager and committed students with the knowledge and skills that they need to succeed!  We also provide ongoing mentoring beyond the course and students have found it very useful to help them make an informed career decision about becoming a doctor.

Register for Low-income students

If you are a student who is either on a free school meals programme, or comes from a family with an income of less than £25,000 then you (and your parents) are eligible for free places via the Student Diversity Fund,  This is Fund that has been set up by Medic Mentor to ensure that students from all backgrounds can have access to the same high quality information.  We are committed to widening access to medicine, and teach roughly 600 widening access students each year.
