Access to Medicine

Access to Medicine (part of the Lancaster Access Programme) helps students in Year 12 to discover medicine as a possible future career and supports them to apply to medical school in the future. Students who partake in Access to Medicine will discover what it's like to learn at Lancaster Medical School and receive expert advice and guidance about how to make a successful medical application. If they successfully complete all aspects of the programme, they may be offered a guaranteed interview should they choose to apply to Lancaster Medical School in the future.
