Pathways to Medicine

Pathways to Medicine

Pathways to Medicine is a free programme delivered by the University of Nottingham aimed at Year 12 and 13 students interested in a medical career. The programme will provide ongoing support to its members in Year 12 and 13 through a series of medicine-related masterclasses, information, advice and guidance sessions. Please note – all on campus sessions will take place at the University of Nottingham.
