  3. 3. The Outreach for Medicine team from King’s College London School of Medicine works to encourage and enable young people living in London, Kent and Medway to study at medical school or to train for careers in the health service or biomedical sciences. The outreach activities are designed to familiarise local students, parents and teachers with the requirements of a career in the medical professions and to introduce them to ways of gaining the skills and experience needed to make such a career a reality. You may attend any session that interests you, but you will get most out of them if you attend the whole series. For information on any of the events offered by Outreach for Medicine, please contact Dr Jane Valentine. Phone: 020 7848 6972/6968 Email: outreachformedicine@kcl.ac.uk MED-VIEW This three-day intensive course runs from 11-13th April 2011, and is designed to give Year 12 and access course students an opportunity to find out what life is like as a medical student and a doctor. Group Mentoring The aim of the mentoring scheme is to prepare you to enter medical school and ultimately the medical profession. The group workshop sessions are led predominantly by senior staff in the medical school and are supported by medical students from the EMDP and MBBS programmes. The usual format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a member of staff, followed by small-group work with a current medical student. All the workshops will take place in the Henriette Raphael Function Room, on the Guy’s Hospital site at London Bridge at 5pm. Worshipful Company of Barbers’ Science and Medicine in Action lecture series 2010-11 The Science and Medicine in Action lectures are available to all science AS/A2 level and access course students in London, Kent & Medway. The lectures are given by research scientists and medical doctors and are designed to broaden your understanding, boost your independent study skills, make you think differently about scientific issues, and help you to gain insight into the wide range of different medical specialties that exist. All the lectures will take place in the Harris Lecture Theatre, on the Guy’s Hospital Site at London Bridge at 5pm. There is no simple checklist of activities that will guarantee you a place at medical school but there are, however, a few things you should really try and do: • Arrange work experience at a hospital or GP surgery and/or voluntary work in a hospital. If this is not possible to arrange, volunteer to help out in an old people’s home or a day centre for people with disabilities instead • Investigate areas of science that interest you by getting involved in extra-curricular activities such as our Worshipful Company of Barbers’ Science in Action lecture series. • Find out what life at medical school is like and what it means to be a doctor today. You could do this by talking to your GP or by attending the Worshipful Company of Barbers’ Medicine in Action lecture series or Group Mentoring workshops. At these activities you will get the opportunity to hear talks from current doctors about the realities of being a doctor and speak with current medical students about their experiences. • You may also like to apply for MED- VIEW, our three-day intensive medical conference. This will give you a good insight as to what it would be like to study medicine. The following activities are designed to increase your knowledge about different scientific issues, increase your awareness about the realities of studying and practising medicine and enhance your medical school application and interview. As part of its 700th anniversary activities, the Worshipful Company of Barbers launched an appeal amongst its members which has enabled the Company to support the outreach work of Outreach for Medicine for at least seven years. In the Middle Ages, barbers once practised surgery as Barber-Surgeons. The two skills separated when the surgeons left in 1745, ultimately to form the Royal College of Surgeons. Now nearly half of the Barbers’ Company members are from medical disciplines and the Company’s charitable activities are focused on medical education. Further information about the Company can be found on the website www.barberscompany.org.uk or from the Clerk at Barber-Surgeons’ Hall, London EC2Y 5BL.
