hello, obviously due to covid 19 opportunities in the medical field for work experience are limited, what would you consider a good alternative job/work experience in a different field that would still be very good for a medicine application i.e child care etc
[btw if relevant im really interested in getting into one of these areas: emergency surgery, general surgery, trauma surgery and pathology

you can search for virtual work experience programmes to do with medical stuff, they'll just be on zoom or something: allied health mentor do one, medic mentor do one, medical projects do one, springpod do one + many more so it's definitely worth checking out some virtual work experiences esp cause its difficult with covid going on n stuff

There's a specific thread created for questions about medicine work experience: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6929328

You'll need to (there's no excuse really) do the online WEx first, linked in the first post of that thread.

Remember, work experience isn't just a tick-box exercise - it's about reflecting on what you have learned. If you're good at it, you can volunteer / work in a completely unrelated field and can still find ways to link it back into medicine.
