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 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 who need these instruments and items may order the Apprentice Doctor® Medical Set/Kit (see above) – containing all the instruments and items required for completing the Future Doctors Academy Foundation Course.

What happens if I need assistance?

The program is well structured, with medical skills well explained step-by-step. Demo video clips are available for clarification. If students need more help, they can email us, and one of the instructors (all medical professionals) will take care of your problem – usually within 24 hours. Email us: enquiries[at] ([at] = @)

I am a parent and want to enrich myself with medical knowledge and skills – may I apply?

Yes, you can apply if you like. 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 Course Certificate to your resume will add the following value: 60 credit hours of extracurricular/alternative shadowing hours. Most Medical Schools/Medical Professional Schools require evidence of additional medical or related courses/experience and proof of shadowing in a medical environment.

Kindly note: the Apprentice Corporation does not have any special arrangements with any specific 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. Kindly check with the academic institution you are applying to regarding their requirements.
