Medicine Courses with Oxford Royale Summer Schools
Students on this course will encounter the fascinating field of Medicine through theory and practical based learning, enabling students to encounter the various types of medicine, the functions of the key organs, and create their own organ model.
This new two-week course will introduce students aged 13-15 to the exciting discipline of Medicine, with guidance from Oxford Royale Summer Schools’ expert teachers.
This course is for students who are considering applying to British medical schools, who want to know more about the courses available and the application processes, and would like personalised advice on writing personal statements.
Modern medical practice is kept up-to-date by the important work of medical scientists. Our International Medical Research and Practice course focuses on the factors that affect human health, and the development of cutting-edge medicines, treatments and vaccines.
Study in a world-renowned university city
Our Medicine summer programmes are based in Oxford, Cambridge and St Andrews, the ideal locations in which to live, study, and develop your interest in the medical sciences. From introductory courses for ages 13-15 to high-level project work for over 18s, we employ expert teaching staff who each cater to their students’ specific ages and levels of experience. Whichever location you study in, you’ll discover an environment teeming with academia and a storied history of medical excellence – not to mention some of the world’s most prestigious university locations.
Plan ahead for medical school
Medicine is a notoriously demanding and competitive field, and successfully applying to your chosen medical school a significant first hurdle. Our Medical School Preparation programme in particular seeks to build a strong application as well as increased confidence in what is required of a medical student. For those a little earlier in their academic careers, an ORA course can provide a vital head-start in and enthusiasm for this varied and valuable profession. These chances to get ahead in terms of applications and the direction of your study could prove decisive in your academic career.
Gain hands-on medical experience
Not many students realise Medicine is an art as well as a science: as well as a theoretical knowledge of biomedical science and anatomy, medical professionals are trained in finely-honed surgical arts such as the stitching of sutures. Students across our medical summer programmes have the opportunity to engage in practical skills workshops, using real training equipment and trying out a variety of tasks from dissection to stitching. This practical experience is often invaluable when applying to medical school, giving you a key edge over other applicants.
Benefit from subject-specific excursions
ORA students enjoy a variety of excursions during their time with us, and our Medicine programmes benefit from visits to relevant sites such as university teaching hospitals, museums of surgery, and first-aid training centres. These trips give students the opportunity to get a sense for the reality of working in the field of medicine, whether that be on the front-line of a hospital, in the depths of a research laboratory or even in the annals of history – it was hardly an easy task being a medical practitioner during the Black Death or Spanish Flu.
Enjoy an ORA summer
The ORA summer experience seeks to forge lasting friendships between dynamic, academically-motivated young people from all over the world. As well as your classmates, you will have the opportunity to meet and socialise with plenty of other students from your campus and age group thanks to our rich extra-curricular programme of workshops, excursions, and formal parties. We never forget that our students are enjoying their summer holidays, so we’re sure to offer plenty of extraordinary opportunities, from falconry and salsa to papercraft and stage combat.
