In March 2020, Meducators UK were provided the opportunity to deliver a workshop and medical school guidance for students at St. John the Baptist School , Woking. Using six interactive stations and Q&A-styled session, we had the pleasure of engaging students, ranging from years 9 to 12.
As this was Meducators second visit to St. John the Baptist School, we aimed to refine the delivery of our material through incorporating feedback from previous workshops. The workshop was led by passionate senior medical students who aimed to provide students a taste of the various aspects that a healthcare profession has to offer; ranging from practical elements such as reflex testing, to the theoretical reflections of medical ethics. The students from upper years were also grateful for the impartation of advice regarding the application and interview process that medical schools require.
I would like to thank everyone at St. John the Baptist School for inviting Meducators UK to provide an insight into the life of a healthcare profession. All the staff and students were exceptionally welcoming and engaging, which I am very grateful for as this was my first workshop as a tutor. We would love the opportunity to return in the near future.

"I just wanted to drop you an email to say a big thank you for making it possible for my daughter to attend the workshop yesterday.
She absolutely loved every minute of it. When she came out she was bouncing along, her eyes were alight with excitement and she had a big beaming smile! The workshop has strengthened my daughter's desire to be a doctor."

In March 2020, Meducators UK has the pleasure to return to Howard of Effingham School and deliver a workshop to aid students in their journey to becoming healthcare professionals. Through our interactive sessions and Q&A, the students were provided an opportunity to be inspired and learn about what it means to have a career in healthcare.
Meducators UK has tailored sessions to meet the needs of students following feedback from the previous year. Workshops are run by senior medical students or junior doctors who can offer first-hand experience in their field. It was great to introduce practical elements to the students ranging from using a stethoscope to identifying factors that make a good doctor-patient relationship. The students were excellent at picking up these skills and demonstrating their knowledge of some key concepts in the medical profession.
Thank you to Howard of Effingham School for inviting Meducators UK to deliver our workshops. The staff were exceptionally welcoming, and we would love the opportunity to return in the near future. This was my first workshop as a tutor, and it was a pleasure to teach such interactive and engaging students. I wish them the very best for their future applications.

In March 2020, Meducators UK were given the chance to deliver a workshop at JFS school. Through six interactive stations as well as addressing a vast array of questions, we were able to provide an insight into what a medical career entails.
Upon reflection of feedback from previous workshops we designed the sessions to be applicable to what students are studying in their science lessons. These workshops were led by senior medical students who were eager to demonstrate what life as a healthcare professional involves; ranging from assessments of vital signs to thought provoking ethical discussions. I was particularly impressed with the students’ technique during the clinical skills sessions.
Students were also grateful for advice regarding application processes and interviews to medical schools, as well as the various routes that can be taken into medicine.
I would like to thank JFS school for inviting Meducators UK to run these interactive sessions with the students. The staff were very helpful and welcoming which helped the day run smoothly. It was a pleasure to teach exceptional students who showed a passion and willingness to learn. They all have the potential to be splendid healthcare professionals. We hope to return in the near future to deliver this workshop again.

We would love to book with Meducators UK again, they offer very detailed workshops, with resources. Students are shown how to use a variety of equipment.

In January 2020, Meducators UK were given the privilege of being invited to deliver a workshop at Solihull School. Using six interactive stations, we had the pleasure of engaging students ranging from Year 9 to Year 12.
Incorporating our feedback from other schools around the United Kingdom, we were able to make the workshop relevant to what students are studying based on the current national science curriculum.
The workshop was delivered by our team of qualified doctors and medical students who are passionate about educating students interested in different healthcare professions. We aimed to share some insight into their future medical careers, provide some valuable tips regarding the daunting UCAS application, and also have fun learning some basic clinical medicine!
The feedback we received from the event was very positive with students actively participating in all stations and engaging with the tutors to get the most out of our workshops. The tutors reiterated how enthusiastic and friendly the students and staff were, which made the day just as enjoyable for our team!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Solihull School for welcoming Meducators UK to come and teach their students. As an alumnus of Solihull School, it was a great pleasure for me to give something back to the school that played such an important role in helping me to build a strong foundation to enable me to achieve what I have thus far. The staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming, and we would greatly relish the opportunity to be able to provide this workshop again!
Dr. Arun (FY2 Doctor)
"I found the workshop extremely useful for our school, with the students being completely engaged in the delivery of it. The tutors were professional and knowledgeable in their fields. The workshop was very affordable, and I think it should be available to all who have a potential interest into a future in healthcare. Overall, I found the workshop from Meducators UK to be hands on and interactive, with it capturing the imagination of our younger students especially! I most definitely would like to book again and to open it up to our younger year students in the future"
- Careers Advisor at Solihull School
"I learnt a lot of things that I didn’t understand before and it helped build on my knowledge. I enjoyed listening and gathering new information and I found the overall atmosphere of the workshop and experience very entertaining and fun. I particularly enjoyed the practical stations such as the stethoscope station and the reflex station as it was the most entertaining station for me. The ethics station was also one of my favourites because I found it very interesting in how a doctor thinks and makes difficult decisions regarding the patient. The tutors were very confident and approachable and answered the questions very well."

In October 2019, Meducators visited Islamia Girls School in London. We were given the chance to teach children from Year 9 to Year 12.
We had a wonderful and interactive day with all the students. We received tremendous feedback on each of our six stations. Students felt each station was relevant to their learning and for their applications in a healthcare field. We ensured all students were engaged in each station in order to maximize their learning.
After each station, students were given the opportunity to ask the tutors questions about applications, life at university and job prospects. This proved to be a massive help to the children who were able to speak one-on-one to our team of medical students and doctors.
This was my first experience of tutoring for Meducators UK and it was definitely one of the most memorable! I was amazed by the energy and charisma of the students and staff at the school. We had an enjoyable day and look forward to teaching at Islamia Girls School in the future!
I would like to thank Islamia Girls School for welcoming Meducators UK and allowing us to teach their students. Thank you to the staff who were extremely helpful throughout the day and the students who kept engaged and are the reason we continue to do these workshops!
Dania (2nd Year Medical Student)
"The mentors were very friendly and approachable; they gave good advise about moving from A-levels to University and answered every question we had clearly. The workshops were informative and not too formal. They gave an insight into the medical field (which is where I would like to pursue my career). The information booklets were very useful and nicely presented!"
- Student from Islamia School
"I really enjoyed all the stations that were in the workshop. In each station, I learnt something new and interesting. I was particularly fascinated by the equipment used by the doctors and medical students. In addition I learnt about the different parts of the end of a stethoscope which I was always intrigued to know before the workshop. This workshop has made me want to pursue my medical career even more!"
- Student from Islamia School
"The introduction to the session was a strength. It gave students a chance to ask general questions on areas that were of interest to them. The feedback I received from students were that they enjoyed all the sessions especially the one on medical ethics! I thought the interactive content was interesting. By allowing students to use stethoscopes, take blood pressure, ear thermometers, reflex hammers and exam X-rays of broken bones was an excellent idea. The tutors were excellent and very professional in their delivery of the session. I am not in a position to book these events but I would certainly support any member of staff who was interested and would highly recommend Meducators UK!"
- Careers Advisor at Rosebery School
"The workshops were varied, and facilitators were young and it was reasonably priced and the students received a CPD certificate. The tutors were professional and their passion for getting into the healthcare industry came across very well.
We would absolutely love to book with Meducators UK again! We had 40 students attend and would look to book again in the next few years."
- Careers Advisor at Rosebery School
"The Meducators UK team gave a personal insight into healthcare whilst also explaining the different entry routes into Medicine and Dentistry. The students found the workshops practical and engaging and the workbook to complete and take away was a nice touch. The professionalism of the tutors was great and they were all very engaging. Thank you very much for understanding the students and supporting their career aspirations"

In November 2018 Meducators UK traveled to Chertsey to teach at Sir William Perkins' School!
This event was led by our senior tutors Dr Maseera, Tamsin, Haider and Orestis. This was our largest event to date, and the students were extremely engaged throughout. This school was my first school outside of the local area of Woking.
An amazing 62 students turned up on the day with some very intellectual questions!. We had such lovely comments from both students and staff that we will be visiting again in two years when the school years turn over.
I want to thank both career advisors for all their efforts on the day and appreciate all the help and questions we had after from the students. We cannot wait to see you all again in November 2020!
Kal (BSc Hons, MBChB prospective)
"The students really felt that they could relate to the tutors. I think they were engaging and interesting to listen to, and because of their age, they felt that they could possibly be them in a few years. They were good role models for them. Overall the tutors were fantastic and Kal was easy to get hold of and answered all the questions I had well. As it is a new company to us and one that is costing parents money, we put our trust in you as an organisation and I felt you delivered what you promised well and the feedback was very positive. Overall a fantastic event that I am pleased we did. Tutors that you chose were very professional and engaging and a real credit to you!"

In September 2018 Meducators UK was warmly greeted by Gordon’s School!
For this session we had the pleasure of teaching students from year 9 to year 12 and looked to continue to teach and engage students in our workshop, as well as improve on our sessions using feedback from previous schools.
The workshop was run by our medical student team, where we taught students who were aspiring healthcare professionals, giving them valuable insight into life in their future careers as well as knowledge on the aspects of university life!
The feedback we received from the staff and students was extremely positive, with students engaging thoroughly in the various stations, enjoying both the variety of the course as well as their interaction with the tutors.
The tutors also highlighted the students’ willingness to participate, as well as their high level of knowledge!

"The students were really interested and engaged in the workshop, I think the hands on nature of the workshop and the fact that they could be asked to come and demonstrate or help with something kept them alert and interested. Anything where they have to be involved rather than being talked at is always good!"
- Careers Advisor at Gordon's School
" I enjoyed how educational and interactive the workshop was. It really inspired me to pursue medicine as a profession"
- Year 11 student
"I learned a lot about medical ethics and how to go about consulting a patient as well as how to make difficult decisions in emergency scenarios"

March 2018 marked the day when Meducators UK was finally up and running!
For our first ever session we had the pleasure of teaching students aged 14 to 18 from Winston Churchill School and St John the Baptist School in Woking, Surrey.
All students that attended the workshop were aspiring healthcare professionals who spent the morning gaining an insight into what university life and their future careers could entail. Six different stations taught by our lovely doctor and medical student team.
The feedback we received from the staff and students was so encouraging, we decided to open up further to schools around the country.
