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.
