    So at our school we don't get given options for work experience but we have to call up places ,related to what subjects we are interested in going into in the future, by ourselves. The only problem is that I'm looking at going into something to do with psychology or medicine. I've looked at so many places but they all said I can't do it because I'm too young (16) and the deadline is in a few days time. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do?

    I guess you could see if you can shadow a certain person in a hospital?

    I was in the same situation last year when I was 15. I just applied for a pharmacy. They generally accept, as you just work-shadow pretty much. Some Dentists will accept you also. Idk, there the most sorta-medicine related places i know you can get into
