Describe your work to a 13 year old
The most important part of your application is the one sentence description of your work. We ask students and teachers to rate the sentences, to help guide who gets in. So have a think how you would describe your work to a 13 year old! Some solid tips:
The ability and range of students taking part will vary, so it’s best if you use language that’s more understandable:
find not identify
use not utilise
Use imaginative language to describe your work, to grab the students’ attention by giving a real sense of what your work involves.
Don’t say what type of healthcare professional you are, instead say what you do at work, and what your job involves.
Show your one sentence description to someone else — not someone working in your field!
I’m a Medic Team on Twitter
Twitter's a great way to not only let participants, teachers, funders and friends see the event as it happens, but it also lets us see how you're coping with it. We Tweet a lot from our account; from daily summaries, eviction and winner announcements to general chatter (terrible puns).
It's also a great way to find future I'm a Medic candidates and for you to forward them on to us, if you think they'd be good. If you're generally making a noise, we'll probably already be following you.
