The Medic Mentor Medical Leadership Programme Team

Timetable

On Monday 25th May, you will be sent an email from your facilitator detailing your group and information on how to use the online collaboration software that the Virtual Program will be run on. You will also be sent a link and password to the password-protected COVID-19 Hub on the MedicMentor website that will contain exclusive content for this programme. Your team will be made up of other School Ambassadors in different years and schools and facilitated by a Medic Mentor Scholar.

At 4pm on Tuesday 26th May, the Program will launch with a presentation on COVID-19, an introduction to critical appraisal techniques, referencing and creating a suitable poster presentation, all of which will support you when investigating your COVID-19 clinical problem. After the Launch Event, you will work through your problem sheet in your teams under the supervision of your mentor. Your problem sheet will include investigative tasks, an ethical debate, and will ultimately culminate in the production of an engaging poster presentation. This poster will be uploaded onto the Medic Mentor School Ambasssadors page, and will allow other school ambassador students and scholars to ask you questions about your topic. A few groups will be selected based on the quality of the poster presentation they have submitted, and they will have the oppurtunity to present their poster to fellow aspiring students in Medic Mentor’s Virtual COVID-19 Innovation Conference on Sunday 31st May. We we will have some incredible keynote speakers talking to us about their role in managing the COVID-19 response, which will be run as a live webinar. This means the students will have the opportunity to directly ask any questions that they wish to, and also further develop their understand of this pandemic.Every student that presents will get a certificate, and the incredible opportunity to say they were able to present their work at a national conference.

In addition to this, every evening there will also be a presentation from a healthcare professional serving on the NHS frontlines, describing their experience of this global pandemic. This will give you a unique insight into the COVID-19 pandemic, which is likely to be a key question in medical interviews for years to come!

If this was not already relevant to your application, the incredible Medical Leadership Programme Committee will also be hosting a presentation on ‘Transferable Skills and the Medical School Application’ at 1pm on Sunday 31st May. This will help you to understand how the transferable skills you have developed through this programme and your other extracurriculars will be included in your personal statement and other aspects of your application to medical/dental/vet school.

Learning Outcomes

Throughout the program, you will develop skills that are essential to life as a medical student and doctor, such as:

  • Critical analysis skills to evaluate sources – vital for research
  • Understanding and application of ethical principles to real life scenarios, and an ability to discuss these issues in a structured debate
  • Innovating solutions to real world problems
  • Fundamental transferable skills (planning and time management, teamwork, communication and leadership)
  • Presentation skills

All students that effectively demonstrate these skills will receive an official Medic Mentor certificate, and students that go above and beyond our expectations will receive an additional prize! As a participant, you will receive individual feedback from your mentor and group feedback on your presentation from the panel of official judges.
