Committed to inspiring future healthcare professionals

Here at Hull York Medical School, we are committed to raise aspirations, support young people's choices and encourage progression into medicine and other medical careers.

Our flagship programme, Pathways to Medicine, supports talented Year 12 students who wish to study medicine, providing an insight into the medical professions, providing support through the application and selection process for medical school and prepare them for attending university.

We also offer a range of widening participation activities for schools and colleges from Year 7 and upwards, ranging from discovery days and talks to summer schools and mock interviews.

In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic all our outreach activity will be taking place virtually for the 2020-21 academic year.
