School students who are thinking of studying medicine, can register free of charge for the RSM's careers service which will provide invitations to relevant events, training courses and updates on medical careers. Events include an annual one-day course for prospective medical students that provides an essential insight into what is involved in undertaking a medical training.
Every year the RSM holds an Easter lecture for young people to give school students who aspire to a career in medicine an opportunity to learn more about medicine and healthcare. Each talk covers a particular medical specialty.The 2015 lecture was given by Richard Budgett, Scientific Director of the International Olympic Committee, about sports and exercise medicine. Year 11 student, Emma Liverseidge was at the lecture and has written a compelling report on the meeting and how it has inspired her.
