Young Visitors Programme - October 2022

The Young Visitors Programme

Please note this page is applicable to those applying for a placement during the October Half Term Only (24th October to 28th October 2022).  If you are requesting a placement outside of this window you application will not be assessed for suitability and you will be required to reapply, at the correct interval.

The Young Visitors Programme is an initiative to offer short placements in the different clinical areas of GOSH to students thinking of applying for medicine at university. This programme is suitable for students aged 16-18 years (ideally sixth form students post GCSE) and runs throughout the year, offering 2-to-5-day placements in the speciality of the student’s choice, dependent upon availability of places and supervising staff.  The purpose of the programme is to give an idea of what it is like to work in the NHS by shadowing clinical and nursing staff; this is a type of work experience although there is no hands-on work. Students are always supervised during this placement.

Please ensure you read the Essential Information, print the Parental Consent document, and have the letter from your Head of School (on headed paper) ready, before starting your application.  You are unable to log back into applications submitted.
