Lincolnshire sixth form students interested in a career in medicine will be given an opportunity to find out first-hand what it is like to be a junior doctor.
The work experience programme for lower sixth form students has been running at Lincoln County Hospital since 2010 but this year the course will be run twice on consecutive weeks, doubling the number of students able to take part.
– Julie Evans, Undergraduate Medical Education Manager, United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust
“By increasing the number of times we run the course twice we hope to be able to give more students the opportunity to find out more about their chosen career with first-hand experience and the opportunity to speak with qualified doctors.”
The programme is led by clinical teaching fellows at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (ULHT).
They will help the students learn daily tasks including learning basic life support skills and learning to suture.
– Dr Kishan Rees, clinical teaching fellow
"Medical school entry is highly competitive. Students will get a realistic insight with unparalleled access to clinical professionals.
"They will understand what it means to be a doctor and the process they will have to go through to achieve their end goal.
“Just as we have students from clinical placements coming back to work in Lincolnshire we would love to see work experience students returning as medical students and this programme helps to highlight why ULHT is a great place for junior doctors to start their career.”
