"Thank you for sending Akash and Opey to The Petchey Academy, our students responded very well to the session and I hope we can arrange sessions for the future. Both Akash and Opey were brilliant with the students, they took time to answer questions and go through the whole process of applying to medical school, I cannot praise them enough for taking the time from their studies to come and help our students." - Sebahat Akdogan, The Petchey Academy
"About a dozen of our Year 11s and another dozen of our Year 12s were lucky enough to benefit from a presentation by Tim, Davina and Punam . All three of them were down to earth, highly engaging and very informative and I wanted you to be aware of how much we valued their time, energy and their encouragement of our students." - Peter Richards, Assistant Headteacher, Hatch End High School
The Outreach scheme aims to inspire year 8 and 9 students from non-selective state schools to consider a career in medicine, with engaging presentations from a group of current medical students about life at medical school and becoming a doctor.
Aspiration to study medicine is a vital part in the journey to becoming a doctor, and students need to be inspired early! Evidence shows that students often consider medical careers after making all-important choices about GSCEs or A-Levels, and this can then limit the choices available to them.
It’s really important for these able and talented students to consider medicine as a potential career early on, ideally before they choose their GSCE options.
We would love the opportunity to speak to students about a career in medicine, ideally before they make their GCSE choices. We are available to visit schools on Wednesday afternoons on the below dates:
|12th June 2013|
|26th June 2013|
