The MedSoc programme is a pilot project with 10 schools taking part this academic year 2022-23. This new project will support schools to set up a pupil-led Medical Society with a focus on the application process. Students interested in medicine or dentistry will benefit from this programme as it covers topics such as:
- Research tutorials
- Personal Statements
- Multiple Mini Interviews
- UCAT exams
This programme is aimed at students in Year 11 and 12. As a result of the programme, students will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to navigate through the admissions process and make a competitive application for medical and dental school.
Schools for this programme have already been selected based on levels of deprivation, attainment, and progression to higher education.
As part of MedSoc, we are also providing Medical Activity Days to Year 10s from MedSoc schools. This in-school event is designed to give students a greater understanding of the range of careers in healthcare and the skills required. Students will practice clinical skills (such as CPR and blood taking) and meet current King’s medical students.
We are no longer able to book any more schools for the MedSoc programme (or Medical Activity Days) for this academic year. Please get in touch with the Outreach for Medicine and Dentistry team to add your school to the waiting list for MedSoc.
Please note that the programme is oversubscribed, and priority booking is given to target schools, as determined by levels of deprivation, attainment, student progression to higher education, and schools without existing links to higher education institutions.
