My name is Dr Adam Jakes, a medical registrar working in central London with my colleague Benjamin Allison, a final year medical student at King’s College London.
We are acutely aware of the disruption that COVID-19 has caused to everyone and in relation to this email specifically, the ability to obtain clinical work experience for prospective medical school applicants. Considering this, we have created an online medical work experience webinar. We aim to make this an interactive experience where students can learn about the life of a doctor from the safety of their homes. We will be covering several topics including medicine, surgery, night shifts, work-life balance and hot topics. We will also be introducing skills such as history taking, clinical examination, use of a stethoscope and ECG interpretation.
Furthermore, we will be hosting a Q&A session at the end to give students the chance to speak directly to junior doctors and get all their queries answered.
We are hosting our first webinar on 29th March 2021 6pm – 8pm, so this will be perfect for both students who have already applied to strengthen their experience for interviews and those who are thinking about applying in 2021.
There is a cost of £25 per person, which will cover the cost of staff, a certificate of attendance and access to a WhatsApp group for ongoing support.
We would appreciate if you could circulate the attached poster for the event to students interested in applying to medical school.

Apprenticeships these days come in all shapes and sizes. With an apprenticeship, you could train to be a solicitor, engineer, journalist, pharmacist or graphic designer—and that's just for starters. You will also be paid a wage, and any qualifications you undertake as part of your apprenticeship—including a university degree—will be paid for by your employer.
This short video provides a good overview:
An apprenticeship is a paid job with training. Apprentices also work towards relevant qualifications while on the job. There are four type of apprenticeships:
A basic level of literacy and numeracy is required to undertake any apprenticeship. If you don't have any GCSEs in English or Maths, you may be able to—depending on the apprenticeship—work towards a "functional skills" qualification while they do their apprenticeship. There are also traineeships students can undertake if they do not qualify for an apprenticeship.
This short video should help you understand whether apprenticeships or university might be better for you.
