Over the course of five action-packed days, you will embark on a holistic journey through a variety of medical practices. You will have exclusive access to a select group of high-ranking doctors who will coach you through live, interactive experiences of emergency theatre, a ward round, a GP surgery, a virtual reality Accident & Emergency simulation, suturing, patient diagnosis, CPR, and much more…
You will dive into the heart of life at the world-famous University College Hospital, shadowing doctors and practising medical tasks that students would never normally be able to experience before medical school. You will attend exclusive networking receptions with some of the most accomplished doctors in London. Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator in your medical school application form and set you up for a future as a successful doctor.

Our chaperones are security-vetted (enhanced DBS check), adult members of staff who have experience of supervising children. They will carry out registration 3 times per day and escort the students to and from the programme. A chaperone will be available 24 hours per day should students need any assistance.
Breakfast is included and there are many eateries nearby for lunch and dinner. Should you have any dietary requirements we shall do our best to accommodate them subject to the ability of UCL to do so. We shall ask you about any dietary requirements in a separate form after you have booked.
Nationals of certain countries require visas to visit the UK. You can check here.
Once you have registered we shall send you a form to complete which asks for basic information such as your name, address, contact, and passport details. You must bring your passport with you for check-in.
A chaperone will be available 24 hours per day (from the time students check-in until the end of the programme) should students need any assistance.
Registration takes place 3 times per day at the halls of residence:
Students must be present for each registration.
We ask that students are back on Schafer Hall premises by 21:00 and do not permit students to leave the halls of residence after that time.
Our programmes are an opportunity for students to experience professional life. As such, we expect our students to behave like young adults. Any student who displays any behaviour that would, in our reasonable opinion, be undesirable or whose behaviour we, or UCL, consider to be inappropriate, may be asked to leave the programme and the halls of residence immediately. Inappropriate behaviour includes the consumption of alcohol, rude behaviour towards others, and failure to turn up to registration
Parents can visit students but are not permitted to enter into the lecture hall itself as we try to create a professional environment. Parents are not allowed to stay overnight as UCL does not permit guests to stay in their halls of residence.
You may arrange your own accommodation but we cannot offer the programme only as a separate price. As such, full programme fees will be payable whether or not the accommodation is used.
