Over 100 healthcare professionals from across Scotland will be volunteering to present and network with students who are interested in:
• Veterinary Medicine
• Nursing & Midwifery
• Biomedical Sciences
at National Medic Mentor Weekend on the 4th and 5th of November taking place at the University of Stirling
Please note that these events are likely to fill up quickly!
It is a highly valuable opportunity for you to network with a variety of healthcare professions, learn about work experience opportunities and how to make a successful application.
Registration is £25 for the Saturday conference and there is an optional UCAS lecture available on Sunday for each specialty. Students can register on the Medic Mentor website and find out more about the events: https://medicmentor.co.uk/about-us__trashed/events/
All proceeds from the weekend will be used to support our UK’s healthcare students with scholarships, elective bursaries, free training and educational initiatives.
Please see information regarding additional study support opportunities that has been distributed to senior phase students.
