Summer School


Target Medicine Summer School is a free, non-residential, week-long scheme for Year 11 students from London-based, non-selective state schools. There are 48 places available and the event takes place at UCL Medical School campus.

During the week students are mentored by two medical students and get the opportunity to meet patients, nurses and doctors, engage in simulated emergency clinical situations and visit one of the local hospitals. The summer school helps students find out what life is like as a medical student and as a doctor. It aims to be inspirational and to give students the confidence to pursue medicine as a career. It also puts students in touch with like-minded peers.

Application Process

To apply you must:

  • Be a year 11 student thinking of studying medicine
  • Attend a non-selective state school
  • Be able to attend every day of the summer school

Unfortunately we are not able to accept applications from students who attend fee-paying schools or from students who attend schools outside London.

PLEASE NOTE the 2014 Summer School has now finished.  More information on the 2015 Summer School will be available in January 2015, so please check back then.

Target Medicine is run in partnership with the UCL Widening Participation department.
