Six pupils at University of Birmingham School have secured a place on the University Hospital Birmingham Medical Mentorship Programme. “This work experience programme is completely unique because unlike other virtual work experience programmes, it is LIVE, using high fidelity simulation in the best state-of-the-art-simulation centre in the country, at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.” – Medic Mentor.
The virtual work experience will allow them to work directly with a number of doctors and medical professionals, receiving invaluable insight into healthcare careers and support with educational routes and access. As part of the application pupils had to write a personal statement and were selected for the experience based on this.
“As their Year Lead, I am hugely proud of their hard work and dedication, taking the initiative to seek out and apply to a programme such as this. I am excited for them to take part.” Mrs Exton, Year 10 Lead.
Congratulations to Mayah, Zain, Hannah, Tara, Sumaiyah, and Duaa and we can’t wait to see where your journey takes you in the near future as aspiring medical students!
