An Overview of Medical Work Experience

A 10 Minute Read Share:

GP practices, hospitals and hospices are all fantastic places to carry out medical work experience. It is essential to be committed and dedicated during your placement and ensure you utilise every opportunity to learn more about Medicine.

Organising Medical Work Experience

Organising medical work experience can be challenging for many reasons but in particular due to issues with your age and placements being worried about the confidentially of their patients.

If you have any family or friends with contacts in the medical field, try approaching these people to see if they could help you organise a placement. The field of medicine they work in may not be the field you are interested in but this isn’t important. The most important thing is to learn as much as you can about medicine regardless of where you experience it.
