Your Healthcare Career Starts Here...
Medic Mentor was established 3 years ago by a group of doctors and medical students with the sole purpose of creating a supportive community and academic network for aspiring and current healthcare students. As a social enterprise, Medic Mentor reinvests proceeds from events, books and summer schools back into the Student Diversity Fund (a fund set up to provide free places to students from low-income backgrounds) and scholarships for medical, dental, vet and psychology students. We also support healthcare charities like Medic2Medic and the Medical Institute of Tamils (MIOT) with their mobile health clinic in Sri Lanka.
Since its creation, we have grown into the UK’s largest medical organisation for aspiring healthcare students and provide mentoring for students from application to graduation. Our network includes secondary school students, parents, teachers, university students, a variety of healthcare professionals, royal colleges, hospital work experience programmes and medical schools.
We now have over 2000 registered Medic Mentors across the UK teaching and mentoring nearly 6000 applying students each year. We work with over 800 UK secondary schools and colleges, and have recently started establishing a school societies network where we help school students set up their own medical society, which is mentored by a Regional Mentor (doctor or medical student), for free.

Unlike other organisations, we cover a broader range of healthcare specialties, provide direct access to doctors and other healthcare professionals, and we mentor students throughout their UCAS applications and university degrees. We also have a ‘pay it forward’ attitude, and most of our applying students become Medic Mentors themselves. In fact, over 80% of our Residential Summer School students received at least 1 offer last year!
