Careers in Medicine Evening

The Careers in Medicine Evening is an exciting opportunity for MGS’ future medics. The event will allow students to find out about the reality of a working life in this area and to hear first-hand about the highs and lows of a career in the medical profession. It is also a chance for boys to make contacts and ask questions about the process of making applications to study Medicine.

Four doctors, specialising in different areas of medicine, will make up the panel; all have wide ranging experiences to bring to the discussion. Each will talk about their career to date and day to day challenges and this will be followed by an extended opportunity for Q&A. We will then move to an open ‘networking’ session for more questions to be asked of the panel as well as others, including current medical students. Sixth Form staff will also be present to discuss the UCAS admissions process for Medicine.

This event is for students in years 11-13. Boys are strongly encouraged to bring along a parent or guardian, but tickets will be limited to 2 per student in the first instance.

We expect demand to be high, so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
