Medic Insight Edinburgh is a completely free-of-charge programme that we (The University of Edinburgh) offers students in years S4 and S5, or equivalent. We are a group of medical students at the University of Edinburgh and we want to give as many school students the opportunity to gain medical work experience as possible. We run a programme which aims to provide these students with an initial insight into medicine and help students, through our events, decide whether or not medicine is a programme of study they may wish to embark upon.
As you will see from our poster below, we offer two events, one aimed at each year group.
S4 Day Event
Medic Insight Day – Saturday 21st March 2020 @ Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh
Applications for this will open on the 10th of January.
The event will consist of talks from medical students and doctors followed by an afternoon of interactive workshops all designed to provide an initial insight into what a career in medicine could look like.
