Izzy, I'm in a kinda similar position to u - I've just finished my GCSE's (results day 26th Aug!!!!!)

I think it's a good idea to plan in advance, that way u give urself the best chance possible of getting in to med school. It's fiercely competitive and there are around 10-15 applicants for every place, so work experience is a MUST. A few People I know who start med school this Sept have said u wont even get an interview without w/e.

I've managed to get one afternoon a week at GP surgery (GP is my next door neighbour and a friend of my mum's) - so I was really lucky.

Any kind of voluntary work would be useful, its the skills ur using that counts - not where you do it.

Hi,ppl.
I am currently year 10 student. however in the future in the end of year 11, I am planning to do some work experience related to medicine, as I would like to study medicine in the future.
I am wondering if there is any possibility to find work experience at any London hospital, if there is I would be very grateful if u give me some hints how to do it.

Thank you!

Try writing to Karen Potter (Vol Co-ordinator) at St Bartholomews Hospital - they're always after more volunteers.

I don't know if this is really what you are looking for, but you could try to get a summer job for Medecines Sans Frontieres (I'll be working for them in August/September).
http://www.msf.org
you don't work in hospitals but in admin and it's for a good cause, you could even say in your app that you want to dedicate a few years of work to Medecins Sans Frontiers when you become a doctor.

Here's the uk site:
