Hi, I'm currently in my 2nd year of university studying BSc Chemistry and I'm interested in applying to study medicine.

What steps and experience do I need to do this?

My end goal is to become a dermatologist.

You’d need to either apply for accelerated graduate entry medicine courses or standard medicine courses in the final year of your chemistry degree and sit the appropriate admissions tests (UKCAT, GAMSAT or BMAT)

Volunteering at the Red Cross, HCA work in hospitals or care home work is all good long term experience, although hospital work is superior as you have direct access to doctors to ask questions. If you don’t have direct access to doctors either through family or through job try to get a few weeks placement at the hospital to shadow a doctor.
