Medicine – Not Just About Medics

The subject of Medicine interests many students, however they won’t all become doctors. Teams of scientists, engineers and mathematicians work alongside medical doctors, helping them to understand the spread of disease, discover better treatments and cures, and develop technology to aid more accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Medicine – Not Just About Medics events provide more information about how STEM degrees can link to the field of Medicine, and why STEM is important for medical advancement. Students will get involved in hands-on practicals, from Chemistry, Physics, Food Science, Engineering, Health and Biosciences.

For enquiries or more information, please contact the STEM@Leeds Team at

We hope to run the next Medicine not Just About Medics event in December 2020, please do revisit this web page for updates.

What are the requirements for the event?

These events are open to pupils in Years 10 and 11 and interested in studying science at A-Level.  They’re designed for those who have an interest in Medicine, but want to explore other medically related STEM degrees and career prospects.

Students must be accompanied by a teacher or member of staff.  However, if other students feel they would benefit from this event, please let us know and we can place them on a reserve list.

There is a maximum of 10 students per school.
