In 2020 and 2021 the Medical Schools Council is working with four medical schools to offer a series of free summer schools. The initiative has been funded by Health Education England and is aimed at young people from areas of England where few students apply to study medicine.
At an MSC Summer School students can learn about becoming a doctor or health care professional and whether it would be the right career for them. They will receive the information, skills and above all the confidence they need to submit a strong application to medicine. We will be running the residential as a real time medical scenario, with the pupils taking the lead on making diagnostic decisions and working to a deadline to build a field hospital and use a range of medical diagnostic tools and procedures.
