Around 70 aspiring Medicine students from state schools and sixth forms in our link areas – including Hertfordshire, Norfolk and several London boroughs – were welcomed into College last week for our third annual Medicine Access Day.
The day, organised by our Caius Medical Society or ‘MedSoc’, gave the students a taste of what medicine is like at Caius and Cambridge, and student life in general. It also provided tips on applying to Medicine at University in the following year.
The students got the chance to take part in supervision style sessions in anatomy, physiology and pathology. This was followed by a lecture by Dr James Fraser, a Director of Studies in Medicine, on the properties and design of nerves. Members of the college’s MedSoc also shared tips on making medical applications and addressed any worries or concerns the aspiring Medics had about life as a medical student.
To provide the full college experience, students were shown around the College’s famous Courts and beautiful Library to learn more about the rich and exciting history of Gonville and Caius College.
We have a range of events at Caius aimed at prospective students, aside from school visits. To find out more, visit the Events at Caius section on our website.
