FUTURE CAREER PROFESSIONALS - MEDICINE
The Future Career Professionals – Medicine course is ideal for students who are interested in medicine and science and wish to pursue a career in these fields. The course aims to prepare students for a future career in medicine and science.
The course combines classroom tuition, field trips and practical laboratory work, so students can explore a wide range of topics such as viruses, microscopy, cell biology and pharmacokinetics.
Through practical lessons and projects, such as the process of cytology, students develop practical and transferrable skills, including problem solving, taking initiative, research and leadership skills, which they can utilise in their future medical and science training. Students also enjoy medical-focused field trips, such as a visit to the ‘MED-Lab’ (in association with Almac Group) to discover the fascinating world of pharmaceutical and biomedical science as they take an interactive journey through the body and learn how drugs are developed.

AISR aims to ensure that all students of the Academy experience a welcoming, inclusive, enjoyable and safe environment, in which they feel respected and valued. Students are supervised 24 hours a day and a high staff to student ratio ensures that all students are looked after.
AISR is constantly monitoring the UK government's advice and our programmes will only run if government advice allows it. Please refer to our full Covid-19 measures using this link: CORONAVIRUS STATEMENT.
At the time of writing, summer school courses are delivered virtually.
Please note that students travel at their own risk. AISR will follow all guidelines outlined in our coronavirus statement. However, this is best practice and at best can only minimise the risk of contracting Covid-19. It does not eradicate the risk entirely.
If a face-to-face programme is cancelled by AISR due to COVID-19, your entire fee will be transferred to another programme or refunded to you at your discretion, except for arranged accommodation and other third party services. For further information, please refer to our Cancellation Policy.
What do I need to get started with the Virtual Lessons?
The online sessions have been carefully structured so students around the world can join us in most time zones.
