DoctorsLive are a group of doctors passionate about inspiring the next generation of students into Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, and Allied Health Professions. We run an online interactive weekly Anatomy club covering live virtual dissection of various human body systems, how they work and what could go wrong. We've been running sessions throughout the pandemic and received great feedback, so we wanted to reach out to more keen students. We make sure the sessions are fun, interactive, and are accessed online from the comfort of the students' home. Each session starts with an organ system and then we delve deeper into various topics including:

1. How the organ system works
2. What could go wrong
3. Live virtual operations – getting an insight on how Surgeons operate
4. Live practicals – demonstrating how organ systems are examined
5. Looking through various scans of real-life cases (all of course anonymized).

These sessions are perfect for any students aged 14+ interested in a career in Healthcare and certificates will be provided for participation.

Our sessions run weekly every Tuesday from 6 pm until 8 pm. If you are interested in this opportunity please note that places are limited and are on a first come first serve basis.  To learn more about our club and how you can sign up please visit:

We have an upcoming SurgeryLive virtual operating theatre medical work experience.  In this exciting full-day course, students will gain insight into the world of Surgery and learn what it's like to be a surgeon. The online interactive course combines real-life surgical cases with real-time surgical theatre simulations as well as guest speakers from varied specialities to share an insight into their lives. In addition, attendees will receive a suturing kit in the mail and learn how to suture in a live demonstration.

The Medic Portal | Student

We are incredibly excited to let you know about our in person and new virtual work experience programme.

We are all aware that getting work experience is a huge challenge for aspiring medics and this has been largely compounded by COVID. We are therefore delighted to have a genuinely brilliant solution. 

We have partnered up with Kissing It Better, a leading charity who have been recognised by NHS England and the BMA. They have recently been featured heavily on the news for their excellent work in supporting older, isolated people in Care Homes. 

Through our joint programme, we will be giving students the opportunity to connect with these people through Zoom coordinated sessions to build up the key skills they will need during their medical training and career, while also importantly supporting a vulnerable demographic. 

Alongside the live Zoom calls, there will be a suite of learning modules to help students get the most out of this unique volunteering opportunity.

We anticipate this programme being taken up by thousands of students globally as we are inundated with requests daily. The programme will be running in different countries, such as Australia, and live Zoom sessions will be taking place to accommodate for global time zones. 

Work Experience

Without being too “duh” about it, work experience is precisely that - It’s an opportunity to experience the wonderful world of work first-hand.

They’re often much shorter and less structured than their counterparts, but they look smashing on your CV, and employers love them. Think of them as a starter, getting you ready for the apprenticeship main meal.
