Yes u can talk about the work experience that u will be doing etc, u could ask the hospital exactly the type of work you would be doing so it could be more in depth. Talk to your form tutor or do u have a careers advisor or someone who helps with your UCAS at school maybe have a meeting with them about it to be sure.

Applying for medicine, they will know a number of people have not had the chance to do traditional work experience this year. Check out the main medicine forum for support on experiences you can still access Don't spend too long on things you haven't done yet

You don't need to talk about modules.

Every single medical school has different curriculum and they call their modules by different names - so unless you are only applying to one medical school, then it would be silly to talk about the "You are what you eat" module that HYMS call their gastroenterology / dietitics / metabolism module, while in Warwick, they call it "Health, Metabolism and Homeostasis"; for example.

Make sure you know it for interviews though, because then you'd be expected to have thoroughly researched that particular medical school.

If you must talk about a particular area of interest, just say it e.g. "I like gastroenterology", rather than the specific module name for that one medical school.
