The University of Manchester

(see tabs above to learn more about the timetable of each day)


    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.

    Programme Benefits

    There are three clear outcomes for the day:

    • You will gain a deep insight into life as a doctor, both through sessions with current professionals AND through practicing some keys tasks yourself – including examining a patient’s x-ray, discussing diagnoses and suturing. The programme, therefore, becomes akin to work experience in the medical field.
    • You will be directed in how to maximise your chances of gaining admission into a top UK medical school – including how to excel in applications and interviews.
    • You will learn from high-ranking UK doctors from a variety of medical disciplines, and be given the chance to ask them questions on a personal basis. These professionals can become vital mentors for you throughout your career.

    Boost Your Applications

    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.
