The Medical Preparation Society

Medical Preparation Society - Medical Sciences degree

"The Medical Preparation Society was created to improve our chances of success when we apply for graduate entry medicine," says Medical Sciences student Francesca Saleh, seen here with fellow presidents Emanuele Pirozzi and Lucy James (right).

"The Society hosts a series of events ranging from workshops to improve our clinical skills to mock entrance exams. It also provides general support with university work and examinations, ensuring students understand what is expected of them in their courses in order to get into graduate entry medicine. 

Previous students - now studying medicine or working as doctors - return to talk about their experiences of the application process, give interview tips, and even hold mock interviews. 

The Society also attends the Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine Scheme, hosted by Cardiff University School of Medicine, which provides an opportunity for our students to integrate with current medical students.

We meet every Wednesday after lectures, and the society is open to all years and courses. There's usually a large social at the end of each term as a relaxing sign off for each holiday."
