All UK medical schools now require applicants to have experience in a caring or service role, either paid or voluntarily, in health or related field, as well as direct observation healthcare. Portcullis is very keen to promote students to follow a career in Medicine, Nursing or related fields and we are more than happy to accept students for work experience at the practice.
Work experience is incredibly useful for finding out if you’re suited to medicine and where your specialty interests may lie. It also shows your commitment to becoming a doctor and is a valuable part of your medical school application.
You can get a placement in a range of healthcare settings, such as a GP practice, hospital or even internationally.
You will need to be at least 16-years-old for a work placement at our practice.
We will give priority to local students if demand is very high.
We prefer placements to be in the summer months June-September as the practice is less busy then.
Send an email to the practice for the attention of Dr Catherine Beanland and we will be in touch. Please give us some information about yourself and what your career plans and interests are so we can tailor the experience to your needs.
