Clinical Skills Course
Online practical skills course for students aged 15+
Expert Tip 1:Be patient! You may not get the hang of suturing straight away, but with practice you will improve. Make sure to watch others carefully and ask for feedback on your own technique.
Expert Tip 2:When reading an x-ray, try to take a structured approach. This will involve looking at each element separately as well as looking at the x-ray as a whole.
Hands-on clinical experience in the comfort of your home.
Clinical exposure is exceptionally difficult to find at the moment but that shouldn’t stop you gaining the experience you need. Our clinical skills course is a great hands-on course that can be added to your CV and personal statement. The clinical skills course also gives you a head start for your first year of medical school.
We post out a clinical skills pack with all the equipment you will need for the course in advance. Then we jump into our online teaching room where one of our Mentors will run a fully interactive clinical skills course that you can take without even needing to leave the house.
