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. Further, you can reference your attendance on the programme in your UCAS personal statement and medical school interview as an example of your commitment to becoming a doctor.
After the programme, InvestIN continues to act as a platform for you to build a successful career upon. Our alumni have unlimited lifetime access to our depth of expertise; students can contact us with further questions at any time, and we make sure you are promptly given the advice you need. Your attendance on the programme is therefore just the beginning of our long-term commitment to coaching you towards achieving your career ambitions.
