    Hi I'm looking to do medicine at university hopefully and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions about where would be the best to volunteer, and what experiences you had at different types of places (e.g. care homes etc.)

    Yes we are looking for candidates who have done work experience to understand what the working life for a doctor is, and why medicine is the course for them. I personally did 3 days of work experience shadowing a doctor in a district hospital. The important thing is what you make of the experience, not how much you have done. Hope this helps!
