Applying to medicine with only virtual work experience?Watch
Hi all, I’m applying to medicine for 2022 entry this October and I just wanted to ask would I even be considered for an interview if I applied to medical school if I only have virtual work experience? Let’s say that I get good predicted grades and a good ucat, would my virtual work experience let me down? Btw I have no volunteering too hopefully in summer I’ll be able to do work experience/volunteering but for now I’m only able to reflect on virtual work experience. Any advice? Thanks!
Most schools also will not score your PS, so this wouldn't come up until your interview anyway.
That said, I would seriously try and start some volunteering now or something that can evidence skills like teamwork or leadership, including things like a part-time job. It will help at interview.
There's also a whole thread on work experience for medicine here where you can get an idea of what others are doing: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6929328
