The Medic Insight day is a one-day course designed to give ambitious pre-medical students (that’s you) a taste of life as a Doctor. Our new and improved course teaches students about what it is like to be a Doctor within an NHS hospital in a clear, insightful way. From taking a patient history, to suturing an injury, students will adopt the role of a Doctor as they engage and communicate with live-simulated patients. All of our Medic Insight Days are completed in training centres within our partner NHS hospitals and will be taught by our experienced, world-class Doctors.
