The Royal College of Physicians Museum is delighted to offer on-site careers-focussed sessions for secondary schools.
Book your class onto a free interactive learning session that uses our historic collections to inspire and educate pupils about careers in medicine.
Through the unique RCP collections, pupils will explore the development of medicine, the range of jobs available in healthcare today and take part in activities that will help identify the skills, qualities and knowledge needed for a career in healthcare.
The session has been developed with learning professionals with insights from the RCP Museum team to provide a quality learning experience. The session will be delivered by a trained member of the RCP Museum Team.

On 23 May 2023 a group of eight Year 12 students from City of London Academy Highgate Hill took part in the careers-focused session at the RCP Museum. The session had been arranged through Islington Council's 100 hours World of Work programme and they joined the group.

"Today was definitely better than expected. I didn't think I'd learn so much. I liked how varied it was. It's compelled me to learn more about the history of medicine”
