A Letter to Invite those interested in a career in Medicine to a Medical Event
 My name is Mustafa Farooqi - I'm a doctor currently working at St Mary's Hospital and Imperial College, London. I'm emailing you regarding TasteMedicine - we are a team of doctors who run medicine-themed taster courses for secondary school students of all ages - all the way up from Year 7 to Upper Sixth. Tastemedicine has been running for over 3 years now, with consistently excellent feedback from the hundreds of students that have attended from all parts of the UK. We have a wealth of experience, and firmly believe that we are offering a unique and extremely beneficial experience for any students interested in studying medicine, or any other similar science-based subjects, at university. 
Our Philosophy:
All of us at TasteMedicine have first-hand experience of the university applications process. We've been there and done it, so we really do understand how daunting it is to make decisions about your future at such a young age, and how incredibly competitive the process can be! In light of this, our aim is simple - to give young people an insight into future careers and university subjects at an early stage, so they can make well-informed decisions when applying to university! 
Additionally, when it comes to medicine in particular, obtaining relevant work experience in the field can be tricky - we can help to tackle this problem too!
Our Courses
Our courses show students what medicine as a career entails and what it's like to be at medical school, all whilst transmitting our own passion for the subject. Each course runs over a single weekend, with 2 separate components - 'Future Physicians' and 'Budding Surgeons'. Students can choose to attend one or both days. 
We cover a wide range of academic and practical subjects within medicine, including:
  • The heart - how it works, common heart diseases, and how to examine the heart with a stethoscope!
  • The brain - Different parts of the brain, their functions, and what can go wrong
  • Suturing - Learning to suture using real surgical equipment!
  • Blood-taking - Learn to take blood using real equipment from our model arms
  • Basic first aid and how to logically and calmly assess a sick patient
Upcoming Dates
Our next upcoming course will be running on the weekend of 28th-29th April. This will be taking place at the Imperial College campus in South Kensington, London (next to the National History Museum). 
Places are already filling up fast, so for more information, and to register for the upcoming course, please visit our website at
Pricing and Bursaries
We have strived to make our courses as affordable as possible and accessible to all, especially given the fact that other companies continue to charge extortionate prices for university 'taster days'. In light of this, we charge £145 for both days of the course (Saturday and Sunday) or £79 for a single day. We can also offer significant discounts for group bookings, so do get in touch for more information.
Years of experience have made us mindful of the unfortunate fact that medicine as a career is more accessible to some students than others. Consequently, we also offer bursary schemes, widen access and benefit students who may not otherwise be able to attend. 
For any queries about anything at all, please feel free to email us at ,
Kind Regards,

Dr Mustafa Farooqi

AirlinePilotTraining 2018

We are hosting a careers event for aspiring pilots at Stratford Girls’ Grammar School on Saturday 3rd February 2018 between 10:00 and 15:00.  This is an ideal opportunity for students (and their families) to find out more about the airline industry; how to train as an airline pilot and the long term and varied career opportunities a role in commercial aviation offers. 

This is a free entry event so there is no cost involved, all we ask is that those who wish to attend pre-register so that we have an idea of the numbers attending.

APT 2018 is an opportunity for your students to talk to current airline pilots, who are at varying stages of their careers, and hear what it is like to do the job for a living.  The pilots supporting the event fly for airlines from across Europe; they are there to share their own personal experiences as well as provide information and answer questions.  There is no better way to get a realistic insight into the day to day role


An invitation is attached. For more information please visit this link here
