Thanks to funding from Health Education East Midlands, and in partnership with The University of Nottingham, University of Leicester, and Derby and Derbyshire LMC, we are launching I’m a Medic, Get me out of here!
Based on the long running I’m a Scientist project, I’m a Medic will give school students the opportunity to meet and interact with healthcare professionals online. Through reading profiles, questioning, and taking part in live chats, school students will see that healthcare professionals are normal people while being introduced to the range of careers in medicine and General Practice.
The first event will run 12th–23rd June 2017, with a General Practice Zone. Followed by two more zones in November 2017.
