generation medics' society

A Generation Medics’ Medical Society (or MedSoc for short) is a place where you can explore careers in medicine and healthcare whilst building the foundations of knowledge you’ll need to enter your chosen healthcare career.

Our MedSoc is open to young people interested in becoming a doctor, dentist or any other healthcare professional (e.g. a physiotherapist, radiographer, nurse, paramedic... we could go on, but you get the idea!)

Our partner schools say

"There are some kids that don't even dare to have that dream. They just think it's not for them it's for other people. Generation Medics is opening that door for them. Enabling them that dream, that inspiration
Catriona
Deputy Headteacher
"I believe the sessions have given our pupils a better awareness of the careers in health and care. It has inspired some of our younger students to work harder as they've decided this is what they want to do. For others, they have been inspired to think about career progression and pick the A-Level subjects that they need."
Colette
Head of Careers
