There are currently a wide range of support programmes available across Lincolnshire for individuals interested in a career within Medicine.

Full details of current programmes open for application will be advertised via the Lincolnshire Talent Academy website “Events” page.

 

Aspiring Medics Sixth Form Programme – ULHT, Lincoln County Hospital

This 3½-day programme is aimed at lower sixth students who are serious about wishing to pursue a career in medicine and who are also academically able to achieve the grades necessary to enter medical school.  The current minimum A level grades needed are AAA, (Grade A in Biology and Chemistry is the norm plus a further A level at Grade A).  It is accepted that it is advantageous to students applying for a place at Medical School through UCAS to have undertaken some work experience or voluntary work in a hospital or general practice environment.

The programme aims to give students a range of experiences that will stand them in good stead when making their UCAS application to this highly competitive field. It will give them an insight into what it is like to be a junior doctor in a hospital in the 21st century.

Students will spend the 3½ days based in the Undergraduate Medical Education Centre and will have the opportunity to shadow a junior doctor, undertake some basic clinical skills such as suturing and cannulation using special manikins in our clinical skills lab, practice their interview technique and undertake an ethics workshop.
