Aspiring Medics – October 2023
Posted on 27th October 2023
October saw the return of the Lincolnshire Talent Academy’s flagship “Aspiring Medics” programme. Year 12 students aged 16 from across Lincolnshire applied to attend this three-day programme at Lincoln County Hospital.
The programme consisted of a mixture of talks and hands-on clinical skills sessions delivered by the Lincoln Undergraduate Medical Education Department and a two-day work experience placement in acute care supported by a range of hosts across the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
Students had the opportunity to meet medical professionals offering insight into the workings of a hospital environment.
