RCSEd Getting Into Medical School Information Day

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh will once again be running their popular ‘Getting Into Medical School Information Day’. This year’s event will run at the College on Saturday 24 June and is open to S4 – S6 pupils from all schools in and around Edinburgh.

Convened by two of our local surgeons, pupils will have the opportunity to hear from current medical students, university admissions staff, foundation doctors, a military surgeon and the College President about all elements of the admissions process and the different aspects of a medical career. Topics ranging from how to choose your medical school through to your first year as a doctor will be covered.

Attached is a copy of the flyer for the event. To register, please go to our website using the link below or email Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
