Completely Unique Experience
Follow patients over a 6-month period as they go from diagnosis, to treatment and follow up, that is provided by real healthcare professionals and a multidisciplinary team.
As a student, you will be able to ask any of the healthcare professionals questions about the cases you see. It will be as if you are really there, but from the comfort of your own home and without putting you at risk during the COVID pandemic. Allied Healthcare Mentor are committed to ensuring that students still have the opportunity to gain valuable insight into healthcare careers, even in these difficult times.
Frequently Asked Questions
Each virtual work experience day starts at 10am and finishes at 5pm with breaks throughout. These are valuable opportunities to ask questions and interact with healthcare professionals. Students can select from 6 dates over a 6 month period (1 day each month) and will receive certificates for each day that they have completed. This is a valuable opportunity that can be used for university and apprenticeship applications.
Any student from any school across the UK, in years’ 10-12 or S3-S5, can apply. Places are limited and we will allocate them on a first-come-first-served basis. In order to secure a place, students must book online and register below. If the programme has reached maximum capacity for a specific date, online registration will close.
This work experience programme is specific for students interested in:
- Occupational Therapists
- Art, drama and music therapists
- Prosthetists and orthotics
- Speech and language therapists
Each Live Work Experience event will showcase all of the careers above. Students will follow a series of patient case studies (as they would with in person work-experience), and learn about how each career has an impact on the patient as well as how they work together as part of a multidisciplinary team. This is important because it will help students to make an informed career decision and give them a more detailed insight into all of the allied healthcare professions over a 6 month programme.
We will not have an entire day focussing on just one profession, because it is important for students to have knowledge of healthcare careers in general to make an informed decision and strengthen their applications. For example, a student must be able to answer the question, ‘why do you want to be a nurse and not a speech and language therapist?’ at interview. However, over the course of 6 months, students will also build a substantial amount of insight into the profession of their choice.
