Everything You Need To Know About The Medsim Course
Get Ahead - Work Experience Opportunities
Use these sessions not only to learn and practice some of the techniques you will encounter in your training, but also to engage with the doctors, nurses, medical students and other potential medical students present to learn more about the range of Work Experience opportunities there are.
Clinical Presentations- Expand Your Knowledge
The Clinical Presentations: These consist of a series of short presentations intended to guide and prepare you for the extensive practicals that are the essential feature of Medsim.
Clinical Training Sessions- Experience Life As A Medical Student
Clinical Training Sessions: These sessions will give you direct experience in using some of the important tools of medicine, with special relevance to your future experience in Casualty. Working in small groups, the purpose is to provide you with actual hands on practice in these essential areas.
Clinical Experience-Mentored By Medical Students And Doctors
Clinical Experience: These sessions are a superb opportunity for prospective medical students to obtain valuable experience of employing their newly acquired skills to diagnose actual patients and to treat others through simulation. Further, these clinical events (the Emergency Call-out in particular) require skills and techniques to be applied in real-time and under pressure. Not only are these opportunities designed to add valuable experience to the student’s UCAS form, they come as close as possible to the actual excitement and experience of being a doctor. Possibly more than any other aspect of the course they confirm a young person’s choice of medicine as a career and provide them with the motivation to pursue their future as a doctor.
+ Keyhole Surgery: As you look through the laparoscopic camera, you perform a genuine surgical task in real-time, working through simulated blood and tissue that is hard to distinguish from the genuine thing.
+ Patient Diagnosis: Several real patients will confront you and your small group of fellow medics. Your goal will be to diagnose their condition, both personally and in emergency situations.
Please note. The Clinical Preparation Briefing is only for delegates booked onto MEDSIM.

Testimonial from Emma - Medsim Delegate
I attended the Medsim course at the University of Nottingham. For me, Medsim helped to confirm that Medicine was what I wanted to do. The chance to have a go at taking blood from a simulated arm and using a model to experience Key Hole Surgery was a unique opportunity to take a look at the practical side of medicine. The chance to meet and talk to other applicants from around the country, as well as current Medical Students, was also a valuable opportunity.
I was able to discuss my experiences at Medsim in my personal statement and interview. I felt that I had had the opportunity to discover the many different aspects of medicine. I also practised key communications skills, since I had to work well in teams of people I had never met before in order to be successful, much like in Clinical Practice.
Overall, Medsim deepened my knowledge and understanding of Medicine as a career and strengthened my application to Medical School. I would recommend the course to anyone who is considering a career in Medicine. I am now studing medicine at Nottingham Medical School.
Delegates MUST be at least 16 yrs old on the first day of any residential conference.
