Course

Objectives and Overview

For Day 1

Our aims are to give students an overview about the requirements for admission into medical school in the UK. It will give students an insight into the application process and help them to decide if medicine is the right career choice for them.

Day 1 of the course will be predominantly lecture based but also involves tutorial work covering clinical skills, basic life support and system examinations and medical ethics.

Topics to be covered on Day 1 :

Medicine as a Career

A career in medicine demands a lifetime commitment of academia, selflessness and personal growth. The course aims to help students rationalise their decision to study medicine. Students are advised on how their personal attributes can be translatable to a career in medicine. We aim to leave students feeling completely assured that they are making the right choice by the end of the course.

 

Lectures around Medical Topics

Students will be given lectures on the following topics:

  • System based examinations; Neurology, Cardiovascular, Respiratory and Gastrointestinal systems.
  • Heart Sounds:. Learn how to listen to heart sounds and be able to identify pathological murmurs.
  • ECG: Learn the basics of interpreting ECG’s and identifying abnormal heart rhythms.
  • X-rays. 
  • Blood Tests
 

Medical Ethics

Students are taken through a number of ethical principles ( Consent/Confidentiality) and learn how to apply these to interview questions. Medical ethics often derail candidates at interview, but the course will make students confident on how to rationalise to an answer.

Situation Judgement Questions

In medicine, doctors find themselves in a number of scenarios where they have to make difficult decisions. Students are presented with a number of these scenarios and taught how to come to a risk averse decision.

Personal Statement

A well written personal statement is critical in standing out from the other well qualified applicants. Students will be shown how to structure a personal statement. In addition, every student booked onto the course will get the opportunity to get their statement individually reviewed and critiqued by one of our panel doctors.

Interview Technique

AT ELITE MEDICS we understand that medical school interviews can be a daunting process. Many students have a heightened sense of apprehension and fear; however the course aims to alleviate students’ concerns. They are taken through what to expect in the interviews including how to answer:


1. Generalised/Common questions.
2. University associated questions.
3. Ethical Scenarios applied from earlier
4. Personal Statement derived questions.
