I'm a Medic, Get me out of here!
Connect your students with primary healthcare professionals.
I’m a Medic, Get me out of here! is a free, online careers event where school students meet and interact with healthcare professionals. East Midlands students login during a 2 week period to ask a panel of healthcare professionals anything they like. Students have more in-depth conversations with the professionals over a fast-paced online live chat booked at a time to suit the school. Preparation lesson plans allow students to find out more about the NHS and a range of roles within healthcare.
All resources and support are provided for teachers to facilitate this student-led event. I'm a Medic is ideal for potential medicine students but covers a range of NHS roles, making it appropriate for different ability groups in Year 9-13.
