Med School 2024 Bootcamp – Virtual Twilight Event (6-7pm) NI Students Only
Duration: 1 day
Application deadline: 23/05/2023
Timings: 18:00 – 19:00
Are you applying to Medical School next year? Many students are anxious to understand what preparing for the medical school application process involves and how they can start preparing for it. As we know, preparation is essential to their success.
This virtual event will be hosted by Dr Lynch and Dr Loughrey to help you start exploring what you can do over the summer months to begin drafting your UCAS application and prepare for the interview stages of this very competitive course.
Drs Lynch and Loughrey are passionate in their desire to help all prospective candidates for medical school entry to be as well prepared as possible. They ran a successful session for last year’s applicants in November, not long before the interviews started. However, they believe that the preparation should begin months before then, especially when there are fewer demands on your time from academic pressures.
