Health Work Experience Project
Our team here at Generation Medics created the Health Work Experience Project to help young people get experience, insight and skills that are valuable to their future career.
We did this because we know it’s not easy to get work experience, to make sure that you’re making the most of what you do have and crucially to stand out from others!
How does it work?
The project is simple, there’s 6 stages to complete before you can submit for a certificate of completion. The timeline on the right walks you through each stage.
To begin the project pay the administration fee to get access to the course on our site, then choose your pledge condition and get started!
Periodically throughout the year, groups of medics will come together to review the submissions and award the best with special certificates & opportunities for publishing! You’ll be able to see the deadline for the next review when you get started on the project.
