Tavistock College was delighted to host two workshops presented by medical students from Peninsula Medical School. Students from the College, in years 10 to 12, listened to the medical students as they described their course and the application process. Key messages were given to our students, such as the need to gain the very highest grades at GCSE; that any prospective medical student needs to undertake some sort of work experience or volunteering and then be able to reflect on what they have learnt from it and what A level subjects to choose.

Questions about the application process were answered and there was much discussion about what constituted relevant work experience and the advantages or disadvantages of gap years.

The students were then split into small teams to learn about stethoscopes and compete with each other over their knowledge of anatomy.

The most important message delivered was that success as a medical student is mainly gained by having a strong work ethic. Our students were encouraged to work hard to attain their ambitions and were shown that, with commitment and determination a successful medical career was within their grasp.
