GP work experience opportunities


Suitable for: Year 12

We are working with the Royal College of General Practitioners to offer 3 days of work experience this summer.

The work experience programme is a fantastic opportunity for you to find out what Medicine is really like, gain first hand experience of working within a clinical environment, see real patient-doctor interactions, and to explore the life of a doctor.

As part of the programme not only will we match you with a GP surgery, you will also attend a pre-placement workshop (4 June 2019) to prepare you for your work experience, as well as a post-placement workshop (10, 11 or 12 September 2019) for you to reflect on your experience.


In order to be successful at application you need to meet the following criteria:

  •  Year 12 student attending a state school/college, and live within North Yorkshire, East Riding, Humberside, or North and North East Lincolnshire and meet some additional criteria

You must also meet 2 of the following:
