Work part-time in care and nursing homes

Getting the grades to study a degree in medicine is notoriously difficult in itself, but what about gaining some experience that will make your CV shine even brighter?

Working or volunteering part time in a care home is a great way to build experience working with sick and vulnerable people, which is something you’ll need to work out if you can cope with before entering into healthcare.

A simple online search will pull up thousands of care home opportunites for you to apply for. There are also a lot of charities that organise sessions for young people to take part in befriending – where you’ll keep an elderly person company for a few hours per week.

This is also great experience as it demonstrates compassion, which is essential for a job in healthcare.
