Experience & Insight

We believe students learn best in full immersion environments. We use the same state-of-the-art patient simulators to recreate real-world A&E scenarios as is used in Medical Schools across the UK. By using this equipment, under the guidance of our Doctors, students are put in the position of A&E Doctors and will have to make decisions Doctors would. 

This immersive situation provides far deeper insight into the role of a Doctor and the further MDT than any traditional shadowing placement would. 

The learning process is so incredible students will be managing simulated cardiac arrests and trauma cases such as car crashes in the space of just one week. 

Complete University Preparation

Gaining the insight and experience required for medical school is only half of the challenge. We also cover each application element to ensure students have a strong application from beginning to end. Our expert Mentors, Doctors and Medical Students cover the following topics:

– UCAT

– BMAT

– Personal statements

– Medical ethics

– Interviews (including a mock MMI)

– The importance of reflection (essential skill)
