For schools

We offer a range of activities for schools and colleges to help raise aspirations, support young people's choices and progression into medicine.

Committed to inspiring future doctors

Here at Hull York Medical School, we are committed to raise aspirations, support young people's choices and encourage progression into medicine and other medical careers.

Our flagship programme, Pathways to Medicine, supports talented Year 12 students who wish to study medicine, providing an insight into the medical professions, providing support through the application and selection process for medical school and prepare them for attending university.

We also offer a range of widening participation activities for schools and colleges from Year 7 and upwards, ranging from discovery days and talks to summer schools and mock interviews.

In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic all our outreach activity will be taking place virtually for the 2020-21 academic year.

If you have any questions about any of our events or activities, please email us at

A massive thank you for putting on these trips for our pupils. One of the students told me that it made her want to become a doctor, so I see that as a success!

Events and activities

Information sessions

A great option to give students an insight into a particular aspect of the medicine admissions process. Our information sessions are shorter presentations, less interactive than our workshop sessions and usually last around 30-45 minutes.

MediCafé web chats

We run the MediCafé – a series of live web chats for prospective medical students suitable for anyone from Year 9 upwards.

Our sessions cover key topics such as the medicine application, student life as a medical student, work experience, and interviews.

The events are an opportunity for you to chat with our staff as well as current Medicine students, who can provide knowledge based upon their own personal experiences.

Whether you are simply considering medicine at this stage, or are completely certain that it’s the route that you want to go down, MediCafé is open to all students interested in a future in medicine.
