Virtual Medical Work Observation Programme


Welcome to the Cardiff and Vale UHB, Virtual Medical Work Observation Programme (MWOP).  We usually offer a week of medical work experience which includes attending Theatres, Wards, Clinics, Emergency Unit etc.  We offer placements in both University Hospital of Wales (UHW) and University Hospital Llandough (UHL).

However due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are unable to run MWOP in the usual format.  Therefore we have created a Virtual MWOP which we hope will provide you with an insight into medicine.

You will have the opportunity to listen to real doctors talk about what it is like to be a doctor, listen to medical students talk about what it is like studying medicine, and gain an insight into some clinical areas.

We have also filmed a simulation scenario, developed learning modules and can provide you with access to UCAT, BMAT and Interview online courses kindly provided by Medic Mind.

Our Virtual MWOP is for any sixth formers living/studying within the Cardiff and Vale area, that would like to study medicine.  It is free to use and anyone can use it regardless of their qualifications.
