About MediCamp

MediCamp is an innovative, residential programme for 16-18 year-olds aimed at developing crucial skills within the field of Medicine.  In 2021 MediCamp will be run in conjunction with UWC Atlantic from 31st July – 14th August 2021.

MediCamp is an inspiring, challenging, highly rewarding programme that will dissect the anatomy of the medical world, from different angles.
Every day is packed with new experiences and you’ll be working together with passionate and aspirational young people from across the globe on hands-on projects to explore what it means to work in Medicine.  We look forward to hearing from you!

The course will offer participants an inside-view of Medicine and it’s close relationship with allied healthcare specialties.  Course content focuses on the acquisition of clinical and communication skills, medical knowledge, crucial first-aid and life support, awareness of global and public health challenges and an appreciation of the imperative roles of allied healthcare professions.

MediCamp sets itself apart from many other courses by prioritising participant experience of Medicine and ensuring they complete the course having gained a real-life insight into this fascinating field.

We believe that offering participants the ‘real-life, hands-on’ experience of Medicine is the most valuable attribute it can offer participants.  We want participants to be able to call upon the skills and knowledge gained at MediCamp to support them in their future; whether it be within Medicine, Healthcare or indeed any other career route they may take.
