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:
– Personal statements
– Medical ethics
– Interviews (including a mock MMI)
– The importance of reflection (essential skill)
Our accommodation is based in safe, quiet areas within easy reach of Central London. Our students share single-gender dormitory style rooms, and will usually share with 1 or 2 other students.
We have 3-4 accommodation partners which we use depending on student numbers and project dates, so please get in touch with us for exact details of your accommodation. You can see our accommodation partners opposite to give an idea of what students can expect from their time with Medical Projects.
Every Medical Projects course is staffed by our own highly experienced team. They are with the students, and on-hand, 24/7 to supervise and assist students.

Our staff also stay at the same accommodation and we always have a female member of staff on duty at night. Breakfast and dinner are included each day.
Whilst learning is our main focus, we also want to ensure students make the most of their time in London and leave with new friends from all over the world!
Our team arrange great social activities for some of the evenings the students are with us. Some of these take place in our accommodation to help break the ice at the beginning of the week, but we also organise some fantastic experiences around the city, which typically include;
– Visits to some of London’s most famous sites
