Students flock to LKCMedicine's admissions and career talks

This year, more than 600 aspiring medical students from junior colleges (JCs) and polytechnics attended LKCMedicine’s school outreach activities in July.

The outreach activities kicked off with LKCMedicine engaging students at the Raffles Institution Scholarship & Career Fair and the National Junior College Career Fair on 13 July, followed by a series of school talks and visits between 18 to 22 July.

Over the course of the week, LKCMedicine faculty, staff and students, met and hosted students from 26 schools, JCs and polytechnics all over Singapore as well as at the School’s Novena campus.

These talks, which are part of LKCMedicine’s ongoing outreach programme, are an excellent opportunity for aspiring medical students to interact with and quiz faculty, staff and students about the School’s innovative curriculum, admissions process, and how they can ace the BioMedical Admissions Test and Multiple Mini Interviews.
