This programme equips young people with the awareness, knowledge, and skills to successfully navigate the complex Medicine and Dentistry admissions processes. It introduces pupils to medical terminology, the variety of careers on offer in the NHS, and inspires them to undertake their own research.
Year 10 pupils try out practical skills such as CPR and operating a defibrillator. They will also learn how to take blood, how healthcare services are delivered to patients, and ask medical students about their experiences.
Year 11 & 12 pupils lead their own learning guided by lesson plans and workbooks covering topics including personal statement support, UCAT guidance, and mock interview practice. Over the summer, MedSoc’s will be invited onto the King’s campus to network with other MedSoc participants, current King’s healthcare students and take part in university taster sessions.
