New guidance on relevant work experience for medical school


The Medical Schools Council Selection Alliance has published an updated guide on what constitutes relevant work experience for applying to medical school.

Work experience is an essential part of the medical school application and allows applicants to evidence their understanding of what a career in medicine involves.

This guidance aims to make clear the definition of work experience in the context of applying to medical school, explain how it is used in the selection process and dispel any myths about what relevant work experience looks like.

The guidance can be accessed here.

More information about applying to medical school can be found on the Studying Medicine section of our website, and on the Applications page. To read more about the Selection Alliance and its work, click here.
