    Unlikely. Getting work experience is difficult enough if you're not a medical student already. Most people source their own placements through friends, family, relatives or just contacting local hospitals, GPs, hospices etc. There are summer schools though which are run by various organisations and unis so have a look for those. Your boyfriend also needs to start doing his own research rather than relying on you or he won't get very far in medical school.

    Hi,
    he could look at things like sja.org.uk he can volunteer at events and have a look for paid first aid agencies near you.
