S1-S3 Introduction to medicine

Join us for an evening of presentations from consultant doctors, GPs, medical students, and more to learn about what it’s like to be a doctor and how you can get there. This evening is intended for any pupil in S1-S3 at a Scottish state school who is thinking about becoming a doctor, is interested in science, or who has a passion for looking after others. We also welcome parents of any budding doctors! The talks will be packed with information but we will also have an open text chat that pupils (and parents) can use to ask questions and chat directly to doctors and medical students. As work experience is difficult to find at the moment this session is sure to provide a valuable opportunity for pupils to explore the possibilities that being a doctor can offer them!
