The University of Leicester be running a range of medicine specific events throughout April 2019 to help both teachers and students find out what they really need to train to become a doctor and study medicine at university.
Teachers’ Medicine Careers Evening - Thursday 4th April 2019, 4-6pm, University of Leicester
The medical profession is changing, and so are the qualities, skills and knowledge required by medical and healthcare students. This free event is aimed at helping equip teachers and careers advisers with the knowledge to support students, especially those from a disadvantaged background aspire to study medicine at university. From research, many students decide that they don’t have what it takes to study medicine before they start their post-16 studies, so we especially want teachers working with younger year groups to attend, so the right advice is given early on.
