Clinical work experience

Clinical work experience studentsThe Trust offers clinical insight experiences (i.e. clinical work experience) to students planning to pursue a career in healthcare.

Who can apply for a clinical placement?

 To apply for a clinical insight experience you must be:

  • planning to pursue a career in medicine, midwifery, nursing, physiotherapy or pharmacy
  • in or about to start your first year of 'A' levels or equivalent educational qualifications, and achieving the predicted grades required for university entrance to the professional training qualification you are pursuing.

We’ll consider applications for clinical placements from individuals who live or attend an educational institute in London, Kent and Medway. However because of the high demand for placements, priority is given to applicants from the London Boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, as well as students studying at non-selective state schools.

How do I apply?

We can’t consider applications where you don’t fit the criteria or follow the correct procedure for expressing an interest.

We receive high demand for these placements, particularly for medicine, so we may not be able to accommodate every request we receive.

If you do not receive a response within three months of your initial request, you should assume that there is no availability at this time.
