The Need

"In 2007, over 450 applications for medical related work experience were made to NHS Lothian"1

There existed scope for improvement in catering for work experience, often a distinguishing requirement for school students applying to medicine, and certainly a platform for real understanding of a future career:

  • School students were often limited in exposure, either only observing one level of staff (e.g. junior doctor) or not rotating beyond one speciality

  • Clinical staff would face spontaneous applications for work placements which were not the product of a structured or formal application process

  • Any application received through an attempted centralisation with NHS Human Resources were either linked to clinical staff, and where not, took time and effort to place with doctors

  • Doctors would cite difficulty in finding time for students as a result of their highly variable schedules over the course of a week

Medic Insight was the inception of a unique programme that addressed these areas.
