‘The most useful part of the day was the opportunity to talk to experts – both about
applying to medicine and life as a doctor’
‘Before today I was unsure of the journey a doctor had to take, but now I have a much
greater understanding of what I would have to do’
‘The booklet of information we were given and the interviews workshop were the most
useful bits about the day. The whole day was great fun. Great value for money!’
‘We will be back next year. It’s great, thank you!’
‘As a parent, I have been able to clarify the path my daughter wishes to follow and find ways to support her in her choices’
‘I have learnt; the pros and cons of being a doctor, things I didn’t know about ethics in
medicine and illnesses’
‘The ward round was most useful as I feel more confident in talking to “patients” which will be beneficial in MMIs’
‘I absolutely loved the ward rounds. It exposed us to situations that we don’t normally experience but it was great because I learnt how to pick up hints from patients and that we should pick up on these during interviews’
‘I have learnt today about important ethics in medicine and how to stitch a wound’
‘I learned what I should and shouldn’t do applying to different universities and it made me
sure that I want to study medicine’
‘You have made my determination to study medicine soar’
‘I have learnt an overall understanding of the life of a medical student’
