Summer School


The 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 at the Royal Free campus in Hampstead, North London.

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.

The 2017 Summer School takes place from Monday 3rd - Friday 7th July.
