There are many reasons for choosing a career in medicine. It could be a passion for changing lives, or it could stem from a life-changing moment. But no matter who you are, or where you are from, anyone who has the ability and motivation can apply to study medicine or a healthcare related subject.

The path to applying to medical school can be somewhat confusing. So, the RSM has put together a service for school students, which aims to provide all the information you need to navigate your way through the application process and get into medical school.
