Ireland's first summer camp for secondary school students interested in a career in healthcare, provided by qualified doctors!
At Junior Doctors, we offer a unique week-long summer camp to see what the life of a doctor or healthcare professional is like. We aim to give you the real experience and therefore all our mentors are qualified doctors. You will learn about the daily drama of working in healthcare and the different career paths you can; surgery, GP, heart specialist, paediatrics, forensics, nursing, social worker or perhaps a doctor working with the army or maybe even a physiotherapist working with the Irish rugby team! You will learn the knowledge and skills it takes to become a healthcare professional such as how to examine a patient, take blood and even save a life with CPR! Additionally, Junior Doctors will help steer you in the right direction when it comes to goal-setting, choosing the right subjects for the leaving certificate, preparing for the HPAT and give you the best chance of getting into medicine or healthcare. After all, who best to guide you than those who did it themselves!
