Free telephone appointments!
Get some personal mentoring – book a telephone appointment!
Sometimes our Mentors do not get the chance to speak to all of our students individually, especially if we are visiting a school group or presenting at a large conference. The telephone appointments give us a chance to speak to you about any personal concerns that you have about the career in general or the application process. Students, teachers and parents are welcome to book appointments with our mentors. Depending on availability, we can schedule appointments from 9-6 Mon-Friday.
All topics discussed are strictly confidential and if our Mentors feel that they need to share information with other Mentors to answer any queries that you have, we will ask your permission before doing so.
Telephone appointments are great for discussing any of the following topics:
Special circumstances such as grades, teacher references, mitigating circumstances etc.
Difficulties in obtaining work experience
Selecting your medical/dental/veterinary schools
Advice on how to get the best support, and more out of Medic Mentor
Gaps in your CV and
General application advice.
Please be aware that these consultations are NOT effective methods to use for interview/UCAT/BMAT or personal statement preparation. However, we can give you advice on the best resources for support with these based on our past experience.

What is the Medical Leadership Programme?
The School Ambassador Programme is open to secondary school students in all years. It is the only national medical leadership programme for aspiring doctors, dentists and vets. The programme provides students with 3 additional teaching days (1 Sunday per term) to help students develop important transferable skills and knowledge that will best prepare them for their future careers. It also gives students extra opportunities to work with a variety of doctors, vets and dentists throughout the year. This ensures that we can provide you with ongoing face-to-face mentoring to help you start thinking and acting like medical students in time for your interviews in Year 13 and S6.
Applying for Funded Places
There are 2 ways to enter the Medical Leadership Programme. You can apply for a funded place as a School Ambassador, or enrol onto the Medic Mentor Residential Summer School for the maximum level of support.
Medic Mentor provide 6 funded places per school (3 for year 10-12/S3-S5 and 3 for year 13/S6). These School Ambassador positions are awarded based on a competitive application from individual students. There is no deadline for the application, but as soon as we receive a sufficient number of high quality applications to fulfil the places at your school, applications for students at your school will close.
