AMAZING SUMMER EXPERIENCE

I enjoyed so much this summer camp for three reasons:
-I have made life-long friends
-I got hands-on medicine with the clinical sessions. I learned and enjoyed so much the cardiology, ophthalmology and neurology sessions.
-It has been very helpful for my personal growth
This experience has definitely reinforced my idea of studying medicine. The environment is quite helpful, you live with more people that want to do medicine and that is really motivating.
As it is an international summer camp, the spoken language is English.
I DO RECOMMEND THIS SUMMER CAMP, SERIOUSLY.

A Once in a Lifetime Experience

The MSAG summer camp was a ONCE IN A LIFE EXPERIENCE!
As I am an Italian applicant, my biggest struggle was to be able to get my head around the UK medical school system and initially I was completely lost, to say the least.
I was looking for a knowledged and professional team to help me to fully understand the mechanism of admissions, which universities were worth applying based on my strengths, how to effectively prepare for admission exams (there are different types in the UK) and strategies to successfully tackle medical interviews.
It’s a daunting process, but I can honestly say that my summer camp experience with the MSAG was invaluable as it fully prepared me for this challenging process throughout every stage of the application, not only by providing me with the knowledge and strategies to successfully ace my written exam but also through regular 1-1 tutoring with Dr Dibah, whose knowledge, experience and support were an asset to make me set apart from any other applicants!
A great benefit was having doctors teaching the course, which means you are provided with an invaluable insight on the life of doctors as well as benefits and challenges of the career (an extremely helpful knowledge for your interviews!)
It was a very two weeks exciting and intense course, with lots of fun activities, trips and opportunities for you to explore different aspects of Medicine (including a hands-on session on how to perform a suture and take blood from a mannequin!)
My best experiences were a trip to Oxford School of Medicine and visiting the Body World in London which, besides being an incredible experience and a unique way to learn about the complexity of the human body, it also helped me to keep myself inspired and motivated during the challenging application process as well as cementing my desire to become a doctor).
The experience was personalized and tailored to your persona, based upon your weakness and strength, which is what makes the MSAG summer course so unique!
Each extracurricular activity was thoroughly chosen by the experienced MSAG team to strengthen your medical application, allowing you to reflect and relate them back to medicine (which is what makes a very strong candidate!), offering you unforgettable experiences and the possibility to make long-lasting friendship with people all around the globe!
I strongly recommend the MSAG summer course to anyone who is looking for a professional and experienced team that can provide you with a tailored and personal experience to make you a successful medical applicant!

theMSAG Summer School

When I first started my journey into medicine, I really had no clue what I was doing. Admissions seemed daunting and I felt like I was walking in blind. So when I first heard of the MSAG program, I was excited that there was something out there that could nudge me in the right direction.

I'm glad to say, the MSAG didn't just nudge me, it set me straight and with the help of the wonderful people who work there, I was able to not only better understand the complicated admissions processes and work on strengthening my application, but I was able to gain a better comprehension of what it means to be a doctor. I got to first hand learn how doctors approach cases and really appreciate just how much work goes into it, from an actual doctor.

The tutorials we received on interview technique, on diagnoses and triage, on ethics and logistics all played integral roles in my medical applications. Personally, I found the tips we got for personal statements to be a life saver.

Fun was the last thing I expected to find on a medical prep course, but there was that in spades as well! The practical skills we learned like suturing were really enjoyable and the group activities were always a laugh. It's quite nice working alongside other young, like-minded, motivated individuals and it helped me see admissions as less something to dread, but more as a another challenge, ready to be overcome. The MSAG helped give me the tools to overcome this challenge and I'm very glad that I was fortunate enough to attend.

theMSAG Summer School

I thoroughly recommend theMSAG Summer School to anyone looking toward a medical career.
I had a fantastic time and learned a variety of clinical skills during the first few days such as carrying out patient assessments, using a stethoscope to examine lung sounds and looking at spirometry in the Respiratory Clinic. We also learnt how to assess blood pressure manually, which is much more difficult than it may seem. Throughout, we were given loads of tips and tricks that helped with my application and that definitely made me a much stronger candidate for a place at university. I found the support network to be great, I felt comfortable asking questions and those teaching on the course were clearly extremely knowledgable about the entire process.
I found theMSAG Summer School to be very useful in thinking about actually applying for a medical career, we were given guidance on work experience placements, course structures and personal statements through a series of fun workshops. As well as this, being taught and looked after by medical professionals we were able to gain more insight into the life of a doctor and we were actually taught basic suturing techniques, which was great.
Overall, I had a incredible experience with theMSAG and would urge anyone thinking about medicine to take part. As well as learning new and very useful clinical skills, I found out so much helpful information about the admissions process and things like UCAT and BMAT that I wasn't told about at school. I met some great people, explored the city and made plenty of friends along the way.
