Frequently asked questions:
I am in year 4 of my degree as a pre-med student. Can I apply?
Yes, indeed – if you want to gain clinical medical skills and gain medical insight, this course is for you – at any level of premedical studies.
|I am in grade 11, and I am interested in becoming a PA (physician’s assistant), is this something I can do?
Absolutely – any high school student in grades 10-12, college, and university students aiming at any medical or nursing professional career may apply.
|As it is essentially a medical skills program – how will I be able to practice these skills at home?
The course is structured, and icons will indicate practical projects suitable for self-examination and projects where students will need a test subject. The test subject can be a family member (a mother, father, brother, sister, or friend). In an academic setting, it can be a fellow student. The supervision of a responsible adult (parent, guardian, or teacher) is essential in all cases where a minor is part of this program, or where a minor is functioning as a test subject. No exceptions!
|How will I be able to practice clinical skills as I don’t have a stethoscope?
Students will receive the Apprentice Doctor® Medical Set/Kit – containing all the instruments and items required for completing the Future Doctors Academy Foundation Course.
|Will I work on my own, or will there be lectures all the time?
Registered students will interact with guiding medical professionals for 30-40 minutes in the morning and 30-40 minutes in the afternoon. For the balance of the program days, students will study the online course material and practice their clinical skills offline.
|I am a parent and want to enrich myself with medical knowledge and skills – may I apply?
Yes, you may apply. In the event of over-subscription, we will give preference to bona fide aspiring medical professionals, though.
|Will this open the doors to medical school for me?
There are a lot of requirements needed for successfully applying to medical schools – like good academic grades, good MCAT score, etc. Adding the Future Doctors academy Certificate to your resume should add value of sorts. Kindly note that the Apprentice Corporation does not have any special arrangements with any individual medical schools, and we under no circumstances can guarantee (or imply) that this course certificate will ensure success regarding an individual’s application to attend any educational institution’s program.
