Work experience

 The Trust is re-designing its approach to work experience, the new virtual programme will be launched in Summer 2022.

All on-site work experience remains paused until the rates of Covid infection in the community are significantly reduced. At this time, we plan to offer only virtual work experience during 2022 with priority given to students who attend non-selective state schools in north west London.

The virtual programme will be open to students who meet these criteria:

  • Aged between 16 and 18
  •  Studying AS or A-levels and considering a degree in medicine or healthcare
  • Living in the UK 

You may wish to consider alternative forms of work experience suggested in the Work Experience Guidelines for Applicants to Medicine produced by the Medical Schools Council.

Virtual medical work experience programme

We are excited to introduce a new virtual medical work experience programme which starts on Monday 4th July. Those attending will be given a journal of their experiences. The programme is focusing on A level students from non selective, state secondary school within the following boroughs:

  • Kensington & Chelsea
  • Brent
  • Ealing
  • Westminster
  • Hammersmith and Fulham

There will be more programmes later in the year. Please watch this space for more information and application forms.
