About LondonMed Summer School (Online)

Funded by Health Education England, the LondonMed Summer School brings together four of London's medical schools (King’s College London, Queen Mary, St George's, and University College London) to give 75 Year 12 students from across England an opportunity to find out what it is like to study medicine in London. Working with patients and student ambassadors, participants will gain a greater understanding of the realities of being a doctor and the skills need to be a more competitive medical school applicant. 

Participants will have the opportunity to experience lectures and workshops ranging on topics such as ethics and law to clinical and professional practice. Attendees will experience differing teaching styles and engage with staff, health care workers and students across all four London institutions.

This week-long virtual summer school will breakdown the essentials to consider when applying for medicine, provide insight into the degree course, and give students a taste of what it might be like to study medicine in London.

The main programme will take place from Monday 15th July to Friday 19th July on Zoom.

The programme also includes additional support events to help students build their understanding of the admissions process and their confidence in applying. These events will include the following:

  • Why Medicine and Student Life in London (TBC July)

  • Admissions Q&A (TBC September)

  • Alternatives to Medicine (TBC October)

  • Practice MMI, Multiple Mini Interviews (TBC November)
