Dundee Week Programme

The aim of the programme is to provide you an insight into a career in medicine by offering exposure to different specialties such as Cardiology, Respiratory, Urology, Dermatology, MaxFax and much more with at least one morning or afternoon in theatre shadowing a surgical specialty. Along with sessions with the clinicians there will also be sessions run by medical students to allow you to gain an insight into what being a medical student is like and the different aspects involved such as group work and ethics. The medical students you work with during these sessions will be the same medical students you see all week so you will have the opportunity to ask them many different questions about medical school and university life in general. In addition to this there will also be a tutorial based around UKCAT test preparation and applying to medical school which will contain more time for questions and advice.
