When does the Medic Mentor work experience take place?
The work experience takes place each month, usually the 4th Saturday. Students who register will recieve regular updates should anything change.
During the months where students are seeking work experience the most (Septemeber – February) is the part of the academic year where our team work hard to deliver a fresh programme never seen before completely LIVE. During the remainder of the academic year (March-August) we continue to provide sessions each month but we revisit previous sessions for students that registered half way through the programme or missed any sessions for any personal reasons.
Who can apply for the programme?
Students who are interested in Medicine only. Students from yr 10-12 / S4-S5.
We do not currently support post graduate students for this programme.
How do I apply for the programme?
By completing the application form and student conduct form below in full.
It is very important that you complete the email section of the forms carefully and accurately. If you incorrectly add your email address, you will not be able to recieve emails from us. Feedback from students and parents sugges that using school emails is not adviseable. This is because school email inboxes have robust firewalls and our emails can be deemed as spam. This means students can miss out on all the important information we send out.
When and how do I get my certificate ?
When you complete 6 sessions of the programme. You must register your attendance for each session. Certificates are distributed within 4-6 weeks from our Admin team. Only after this time will students correspondence for certificates be addressed.
What happens when the 6 months has finished?
The programme usually ends around February on the last week of the month. Following this, during the month of March the sessions will continue but they will be sessions centred around re-visiting the content from the previous sessions for students who missed any or have been late seek work experience.
A brand new programme will start from Septemeber in the next academic year.
Do I need to reapply?
In short No. If you wish to continue with the programme you do not have to reapply. If you are a student who does not wish to continue with the programme you need to inform us via our admin form. They may ask you to complete a short “Opt Out” form. so we can be sure you wont recieve emails from us regardint this programme.

Access to the Work Experience Library
We had a huge number of requests for this resource, because many students also wanted to watch the live sessions back a second time to make more detailed notes. There is just so much information packed into each session – now you can. You can choose to access 42 hours of simulation experience for £25 a month. Any money raised by the Library will help to fund the work experience programmes, and the live sessions will continue to be free forever! So, if you want to catch up or simply watch back any of the sessions at your convenience, you may find this option to be a valuable resource. Please make sure that you also sign up for the free live sessions using the application form below.

Please take the time to complete each of the 2 sections carefully. Complete the application once, but if you do make a mistake, you can complete it again. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Thank you.
