    It very much depends who you are placed with and what the hospital is able to offer you at that particular time. Some will allow you to shadow a junior doctor, others will give you a couple of hours in a few different departments shadowing staff, others have a work experience programme with seminars etc.*You will physically do very little as you have no relevant training or insurance so will mostly just be observing and asking questions.
