Hello,
I really want to do medicine at University and i understand how competitve a course it is and so I want to do everything I can outside of college to get the best chance of entry.
I would like to ask any current Medical students or anyone thinking of applying to do medicine in september 2015 to supply me with information regarding what kind of work experience they did be it a summer placement or whatever.
I would like to know what kind of thing you did
Contact details on the company or service
and how you found it.
Thank you very much for your time.

Anything involving a care component would be ideal. Nursing homes usually love volunteers, or see if you can get involved volunteering and talking to patients at a local hospital.

Both these things can be arranged with a bit of persistence on your part.

Shadowing (at least a little) would also be helpful. If you don't have any strings to pull with friends/family then you could prospectively ask consultants via email (POLITELY!!) if they'd be okay with you shadowing for a day. Most won't reply, the odd few might, and most of those will tell you to go elsewhere or to speak with the hospital's volunteering department/HR department who deal with a lot of shadowing.

Thank you so much, I will definitely do some research into this.
