NHS Live Online Work Experience
Free live virtual work experience for students in the UK wanting to become a doctor, dentist or vet
7 October 2020
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital has partnered with Medic Mentor, the UK’s largest medical family, to provide free live virtual work experience to any student in the UK wanting to become a doctor, dentist or vet. This work experience programme is completely unique because unlike other virtual work experience programmes, it is LIVE, using high fidelity simulation in the best state-of-the-art-simulation centre in the country, the QE Hospital in Birmingham. Following 3 patients over a 6-month period, students will observe them as they go from diagnosis, to treatment and follow up, all provided by real doctors and a multidisciplinary team. As a student, you will be able to ask any of the doctors questions about the cases you see. It will be as if you are really there, but from the comfort of your own home and without putting you at risk during the COVID pandemic.
The live virtual work experiences will take place every 3rd Saturday of the Month, with the first one going live on the 17th of October. The virtual scheme will run for a 6 month period offering students 30 hours of valuable work experience.
Who can Apply?
Any student from any school across the UK, in years’ 10-12 or S3-S5, can apply. Please note that places are limited and will be allocated based on the quality of the student’s application.
