    What does it involve?

    And do many first year medics work as HCA? Any other jobs for pre-clinical medical students?

    Washing patients, helping to feed patients, making beds, doing obs, etc. Generally assisting the nursing staff with their work.

    Yeah some people do it, but on the whole I don't know many med students who work regularly during term time.

    Democracy pretty much hit the nail on the head.

    Washing patients, doing obs, making beds, taking patients to/from scans/surgery, feeding patients, a couple of odd jobs and other things.

    I hope to do bank shifts as a HCA during the holidays when I'm at uni
