On Friday 9th July, aspiring medics and dentists in Year 12 engaged in a workshop delivered by Dr Hetal Acharya, an applications specialist based in Leicester. Dr Acharya is also a Psychiatrist working for the NHS.
The workshop engaged students through a combination of fun and interactive individual and group activities. The workshop was structured to help students prepare, plan and practise skills that will be required for the rigorous application process.
Our thanks to Dr Acharya for creating this opportunity for our students to practise reflective skills, challenge one another, provide peer-to-peer feedback, create discussion and improve overall confidence.
More workshops, including interview preparation, will continue through the Autumn term.
