The Hull York Medical School offers a variety of activities for young people to help raise aspirations and encourage progression into medicine.

Hull York Medical School (HYMS) is a joint medical school between the Universities of Hull and York. Activities take place at both the Hull and York campuses.

Pre-16 activities

We offer a range of interactive activities to give students an opportunity to find out more about medicine. These include:

  • Lucy: Medical Emergency for Years 7 and 8
  • Medicine Discovery Days for Year 9

For Year 10 and 11 students, we offer Medicine Discovery Sessions allowing them to experience problem based learning at HYMS as well as engaging in interactive clinical activities.

Post-16 activities

Pathways to Medicine

Pathways to Medicine is our flagship Outreach Programme, run in partnership with The Sutton Trust. We support talented local Year 12 students who are considering a career in medicine and come from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in higher education and medicine

Making Connections

Making Connections is suitable for Years 12 and 13 students who are taking Biology and Chemistry at A Level. The programme develops an understanding of the Problem Based Learning (PBL) method used at HYMS and gives students the opportunity to have a go at some bio-practical work in our lab.

Additional activities for post-16 students include GP work experience opportunities and HYMS Year 12 summer school.

Excellence Hub (Years 7 to 13)

Students can also take part in a range of medicine-themed events through the Excellence Hub for Yorkshire and Humber, a collaboration between the universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.
