Webinar 1: Creating a Back-up Plan to Medicine

Courses such as medicine are incredibly popular with students and where there is popularity there is competition. With as many as 10 applicants for every one place at a medical school, medicine is one of the most competitive courses in the UK. This is why it is important to have a backup plan in place and to consider the Allied health professions. This webinar will focus on helping you create a plan covering key considerations, and introducing a number of possible alternative clinical roles where you will still be able to make a difference to patients’ lives.
