The Medical School Application Course is designed to help candidates be better informed and better psychologically prepared for applying to medical school. This will help them with writing their UCAS personal statements, preparing for the clinical aptitude tests, and preparing for their medical school interviews, including the new MMI interview format.
The feedback we receive from pupils and teachers is that high calibre students often don’t get medical school offers. This is because entrance to medical school has become so competitive that good grades and extensive extra-curricular involvement are no longer enough. Candidates must stand out from the crowd by showing that they could be one of ‘Tomorrow’s Doctors’. A deeper knowledge and understanding of medicine is required.
In our experience pupils often lack in-depth knowledge about the world of medicine, and what the medical degree and career path really involves. This is understandable because there is so much to know, and it can be difficult to understand without the help and instruction of someone from inside the world of medicine. This is why we created the Medical School Application Course. We will spend a whole day teaching the delegates about the world of medicine and how to become a part of that world.
