Shadowing doctors & Medical work experience

  • 1 vote

Has anyone had the opportunity to shadow a doctor or do some other form of medical work experience recently?

I really need to get some sorted ready for my university application but I'm scared I won't be allowed anywhere D:

just go to NHS website they should have some there or ask your work experience manager at school. i assume that you're sixteen which means that your probably allowed by law already. in adition also try and go to hospital websites or the hospital itself and ask for the work experience at the human resources or education department. just remmember to be confident, polite and ask nicely if they say no then try and understand their situation and just say thanks. this often works and don't be afraid of rejection beause the only failure is not trying.

sorry for the long answer hope it helps

yup do that

try to shadow someone skilled in the hospital too

its very hard to arrange work exp., especially at a hospital, n peeps rnt stupid, they know that

so try your best, and also go see opticians, gp's- tho not your own surgery, hospital but the specific peoples or departments as fboco said, and dental practicees

anything medical

for xampole- r u over 18? volunteer at your local hospice

that would also count as volunteering

lots of luck :)

dont be scared- its a long process to actually find a placement- but dont be disheartened and dont give up looking, in fact- start NOW!

do you know anyone at the hospital or who works in medecin? dont be afraid to ask help as well

and leave your cv at a few places too
