Virtual Work Experience Resources

Due to COVID-19 we are unable to provide any physical work experience. Instead we have put together a list of resources to assist you in carrying out alternative work experience.

Medic Mentor

Medic Mentor is a non-profit national medical organisation for applying students, medical students and doctors.  They specialise in helping applying students get into medicine. They offer virtual work experience, which is a 30 hour commitment from a pupil over 6 months. Pupils receive a certificate and they have a journal to complete for reflection, it covers 3 patient journeys: geriatric/adult and paediatric. Medic Mentor is run by a UK-wide network of volunteer doctors who provide UCAS support and teach medical students how to become successful future doctors and NHS leaders.
