Free half term workshops for aspiring doctors from Cornwall

Surgery, Hospital, Doctor, Operation, Nurse, Teamwork

If you know a young person who wants to become a doctor then there is a free two day event in half term that will go through all the pros and cons of a career in medicine.

On 12 and 13 February 2018, Get In Cornwall in partnership with the University of Exeter, will host a Future Medics event for young people in Cornwall. Anyone aged 14 or over can attend.

Those who enjoy science but have not previously considered becoming a doctor are particularly welcome.

Future Medics will provide two standalone workshops.

Day 1 (Monday 12 February) will offer advice on the process of applying for medical school and the opportunity to chat to current students.

Day 2 (Tuesday 13 February) will focus on myth busting and challenging assumptions: ‘Think medicine is not for you – think again!’

People can attend either or both days.

Kate Teagle, Work Experience Co-ordinator at Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust said:

“We are very excited to be hosting our first Future Medics workshops next month in conjunction with the University of Exeter and are thrilled to be able to offer dedicated advice and support to young people locally who aspire to become the next generation of doctors.”

The event will take place at the Knowledge Spa, Royal Cornwall Hospital and is free.
