NEW STEM EVENT: I’m a Medic Get me out of here!
I’m a Medic Get me out of here is a free online event where school students meet and interact with doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and primary healthcare staff. It’s a fantastic competition and students are the judges!
Students challenge the primary healthcare professionals over fast-paced online text-based live chats. They ask them anything they want, and vote for their favourite to win a prize of £500 to spend on further engagement to encourage more young people into medicine.
The first event will run from 12th–23rd June 2017!
I’m a Medic is based on the long running I’m a Scientist project, where school students put their questions to real scientists online.

– Nationally, there is a growing concern about the shortage of qualified doctors choosing to train in general practice, with some models calling for a 50% increase in the general practice workforce by 2020.
