I’m a Medic June 2017: Who’s taking part?

Schools taking part in I’m a Medic in June

This June, we’re launching the first I’m a Medic, Get me out of here event!

Between 12th – 23rd June students at 18 schools will put 6 healthcare professionals through their paces, in fast-paced live chats and probing questions on everything to do with general practice, from vaccinations, to prescriptions, to what it’s like to run a GPs surgery.

For the latest news and announcements about the event, find us on Twitter, @imamedic_uk, and follow the hashtag, #IAMUK.

Let’s meet the healthcare professionals and schools taking part…
