Ward Round Live

Virtual hospital work experience course for students aged 15+



Expert Tip 1:

Conducting a ward round is much like a problem-solving task. You need to process information from notes, the wider MDT, observations and the patient to work out how effective the current treatment plan is. What is the information telling you? What do you need to do to improve the patients situation?

Expert Tip 2:

Never underestimate the role and importance of the other Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) members on a ward. For example, nurses have a much closer relationship with the patients & may have essential information that could change your decision and treatment plans.

Hospital Work Experience, Now Online!

Hospital work experience has always been the most sought after but the most challenging type of experience to find. Hospitals currently have blocked or severely limited work experience spaces for students, but we have now solved this problem!

Our Ward Round Live course uses the latest live-streaming technology to bring you into our simulated ward. Students will see real cases and can now talk with our patients. Students will discuss each case with their fellow students and our NHS Doctors in more detail than they would get a chance to in traditional hospital shadowing placements.

We believe there is no better experience than an immersive one. Students will learn to speak to patients, order tests and examinations, as well as discuss each case with our Doctors before suggesting treatment plans.

This course is taught and guided by our dedicated NHS Doctors. A full day of ward-based medical experience to boost your medical school application.

End of day knowledge quiz

Better than traditional shadowing.

Traditional hospital placements normally pair students with a busy NHS Doctor. Typically the Doctor has a really busy case load and limited time to talk and explain each case. Students spend most of their time observing and taking lots of notes. But, there is a better way to learn – by being immersed and having to speak to patients, and work through real cases yourself.

We have built our own hospital ward within a live-streaming studio so we can conduct ward rounds for our students. Our Doctors start by explaining how hospital wards function and the MDT involved, before presenting a real case to the students. After this our Doctor will build up your knowledge by looking at observations and procedures, before giving students the chance to take on their own cases!

By the end of the day you will be talking directly to the patients, reading notes, observations, ordering scans or tests and suggesting treatment plans. Our Doctors are on hand to help guide and support students through the entire process. There is no better experience and insight than full immersion into the role of a hospital ward doctor!

Emma’s Ward Round Live Story…

Emma was applying to medical school and was struggling to find work experience. She had no connections within local hospitals or GP surgeries and was finding it tough to find the right people to speak to within these establishments.

This changed when Emma found our Ward Round Live course. It offered everything she was looking for from a medical work experience placement.

Emma talks about how our Ward Round Live course provided insight into lots of medical cases and how our NHS Doctors took the time explain each case to her. Also, speaking directly to patients from the live-streamed wards, forming diagnoses and treatments plans was also a highlight of the course.

Emma now has three offers from UK medical schools and is looking forward starting her journey to becoming a Doctor.

What our students think…

” Ward Round Live is an awesome course. I feel like I’ve learnt A LOT. The doctor we had on our course was a very nice lady and she was explaining some stuff multiple times if someone needed more explanation. I feel much better prepared for my interview with King’s now. ”

– Heather (student)

“I really liked how interactive the course is. My daughter was actually talking to the patient and the doctor quite a lot. Very impressive. Definitely worth the money.”

– David (Parent)

“This is a second course by Medical Projects I attended. The first one – GP Live was very good and this one was perfect as well. I really like how they managed to recreate a real hospital ward in the studio. It feels like you are in an actual hospital. Gives you a great insight into how doctors in hospital work.”

– Joe (Student)

We have built a hospital ward within a TV studio so you can access via our online platform. You will be on-screen so the Doctor and patients can see and hear you.
