The Young Visitors Programme
Please note this page is applicable to those applying for a placement during the February Half Term Only (13th February to 17th February 2023).

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.
