Who is this Medicine Summer School for?
This course is designed for anyone who wants to gain real-world experience of what a career in medicine entails and whether it is the right choice for them. We’ve designed the course for students 16 years and older from anywhere in the world who are looking for an authentic, practical Health care experience. This is also for any undergraduate or graduate students with an interest in general medicine and surgery. Our courses welcome international students as well!
Exposure to a variety of specialities will help you find your passion. This will help you understand a wide variety of professions within medicine, and help you decide if medicine is the right choice for you. We’ve worked hard to create one of the best summer medical programs for secondary school, undergraduate and graduate students!
Medical School Summer School Programme
Our Medicine Summer School provides both practical experience and the skills you need to help prepare for the admissions process. Students who register for our Summer School also get full access to our Online Interview Course and a free copy of our “Get into Medical School”Guidebook, used by career advisers throughout the UK.
You’ll be able to develop a final draft of your personal statement alongside members of Medical School Admissions Panels. You’ll experience an in-depth UCAT course, including detailed training and mock exams, as well as BMAT preparation taught by Cambridge Tutors. You’ll also have an experience that is completely unique to theMSAG. You’ll be able to work one-on-one with Dr Dibah Jiva, a leading expert in the UK for Medical School Admissions.
By the end of the course, you’ll have a clear understanding of how medical school applications are scored and reviewed. Together, you will create a step-by-step plan to apply where you have the best chances of success.
Focus on skills unique to certain specialities:
Cardiology: You’ll learn what it’s like to perform a cardiac clinical examination, examine pulses, blood pressure, record and interpret an ECG with an actual Cardiologist.
Ophthalmology: You’ll simulate the steps of a cataract operation, see through the eyes of patients with eye conditions, examine the back of the eye and perform reconstructive surgery with an experienced Ophthalmologist.
Junior Doctor: You’ll learn how to take a patient’s history and examine the Neurological, Gastroenterological Respiratory & Vascular systems with a Junior Doctor. Cannulation, phlebotomy, Doppler Ultrasound and more: all taught by qualified and experienced Doctors and medical experts.

UCAT/BMAT: Unlike other providers that give you an introduction to these tests, during our 2-week summer school we provide a full course for each exam. We have 8 separate sessions to get you not only comfortable with the tests but also provide you with opportunities for tutoring and coaching to improve your own strategies and scores.
Personal Statements: We have reviewed over 1000 personal statements over the last few years and helped thousands of students get through their interviews. During our summer school, you will have 3 dedicated sessions to draft your personal statement with effective brainstorming and a good appreciation of the school’s marking schemes. You’ll also be able to develop a final draft of your Personal Statement with one-to-one mentoring.
Medicine Interviews: You also get the chance to practice the MMI - the Multiple Mini Interview format - a keystone of the admissions process. Learn how to formulate answers to questions about ethics, situational judgement, duties of a doctor, NHS, role play and more, and get a video copy of your feedback.
NHS, UK Healthcare and Hot Topics in Medicine: You’ll also have multiple opportunities to sit down and discuss, debate or interact with your peers and professionals about many topics discussed in Medical School interviews. Some topics include Medical ethics, NHS structure, Current affairs/ issues, big medical organisations or foundations, landmark discoveries, important figures and Medical advancements.
Students will also experience something unique to theMSAG… they’ll be able to work one-on-one with Dr Dibah Jiva, a leading expert in the UK for Medical School Admissions. By the end of the course, you’ll have a clear understanding of how medical school applications are scored and reviewed.
