I am hoping to study Medicine in the future but I want to get as much work experience/volunteering done as I can to help me later with my application (bearing in mind I'm only 15)
Can anyone please recommend where I should volunteer/do work experience?
I already volunteer every Saturday at a children's group for disabled children, and I'm sorting out volunteering at a care home. I know that's a couple of things, but I feel like I'm wasting my time when I'm not doing something that may help my application in the future? Any advice? Much appreciated.
Ideally you would want to do some work experience in a hospital or GP surgery, but unfortunately it can be difficult to get clinical placements when you aren't 17 or 18. Still, there's no harm in trying - check hospital websites for details of their work experience programmes, email doctors' secretaries, ask family members or family friends who work in the NHS if they have any contacts etc.
And if that doesn't pay off in the next few months, don't worry about it, you've still got plenty of time left to sort it all out
