Young Person’s Medical Conference

The Young Person's Medical Conference is the only medical conference in the UK designed entirely for students aiming to apply to Medical School. Created to emulate the global conferences doctors and medical staff attend worldwide every year, the Young Person’s Medical Conference offers students a taste of the ever-evolving world of Medicine, the new advances in technology and care changing the way we treat patients today, as well as expert guidance on how to begin on your own path to becoming a medical professional.

Students are immersed in the world of Medicine from the minute they walk through the doors of the conference, which is held in London’s famed medical district. Talks from leading medical practitioners are complemented by hands-on medical exercises such as learning to stitch a wound, and workshops from medical admissions tutors and consultants on how to make a successful application to medical school.

How The Young Person’s Medical Conference Can Forward Your Application

"The life so short, the craft so long to learn."

Hippocrates

Smiling Student Young Person's Medical Conference

Students pursuing a career in Medicine are choosing to embark on a lifelong journey of learning. Doctors attend hundreds of global conferences every year, with the General Medical Council (GMC) offering specific guidelines on responsible personal learning to medical doctors in the UK.

At Dukes Medical Applications, we believe that prospective medical students can benefit from these learning environments, just as a fully qualified medical doctor can. Choosing Medicine is, in most cases, choosing a whole lifestyle – a vocation. At the Young Person’s Medical Conference, you will have the opportunity to hear from qualified doctors in different specialties about their own reflections on the medical profession, its challenges, and how to become a doctor.
