Choosing to study medicine is a big decision. It will require long hours, years of study, and unwavering dedication; studying medicine can be challenging, but also incredibly rewarding. The Immerse Medicine summer school programme is a unique two week course designed to prepare participants for the challenges and expectations of undergraduate study.
Throughout the medicine summer school programme, designed and taught by expert tutors from the world’s leading universities, students will be encouraged to think critically, develop practical skills and work collaboratively to solve complex medical problems. Class sizes are kept small, allowing participants a chance to interact easily with tutors and their peers as they study a broad range of topics, covering everything from the basics of human anatomy to the latest developments in experimental medicine.
However, the goal of this medicine summer school programme is not simply to give potential medical students an immersive insight into the life of a medical undergraduate. The programme is also geared towards A-level or IB students who want to know if a career in medicine is right for them. As such, the course places a strong emphasis on nurturing independent thinking and constructive debate . By the end of the two weeks, participants will have both an in-depth introduction to first-year medical topics, as well as a firm understanding of the challenges that come with being an undergraduate medical student.
