Medicine is one of the world’s most prestigious and highly-regarded professions. It is therefore one of the most competitive: there are around 65,000 applications to medical school each year, for fewer than 7,000 places. The Young Doctor Programme brings highly-accomplished UK doctors into a room to give you a wholehearted experience of life in the medical profession.
There are three clear outcomes for the day:
The Young Doctor Programme therefore represents a fantastic opportunity for you to both experience life as a doctor and prepare for the medical school admission process. Students can also reference their attendance on the programme in UCAS personal statements as an example of their commitment to pursuing a career in the medical profession.
Programme Fee: £130/student. If 2 or more places are booked students receive a 10% discount. Enter code GROUP10 at checkout to benefit from this.
Refund Policy: We do not offer cash refunds for programme bookings. However, we do provide 100% credit against your purchase in case you can no longer attend the programme you have booked for if you cancel before the programme takes place. That credit can be used against any future programme run by InvestIN Education by you or one of your associates. For a full list of terms and conditions, please click here.
