The Virtual Medical, Dental and Veterinary Society
By joining the Virtual Medical Society, you will unlock a host of other mentoring opportunities. You will automatically be enrolled in our Virtual Work Experiences, the VMS, Get into Medicine UCAS conference, and Insight into Medicine Careers conference. You will also receive a Medic Mentor Student Portal login, to access all of the up-to-date information about the programmes you are enrolled on.
What is the Virtual Medical Society?
During the COVID-19 lockdown, Medic Mentor launched the Virtual Medical Society (VMS) – hosting weekly virtual meetings with aspiring medic, dental and vet students to discuss all things UCAS! Over the course of lockdown, the society has grown to exceed 7000 students and evolved to host a student lead committee of 40 motivated young people who work together to research topics for discussion, invite leaders of the NHS and top veterinary surgeons in the UK to answer questions and steer our students in the direction to the top 10% of their application year!
This is one of the free initiatives that Medic Mentor can offer students and we welcome all aspiring students to join and continue the growth of the VMS. Students will have opportunities to virtually meet and interview top doctors, dentists and vet practitioners on their careers and their experiences of the journey to university.
Who can join the Virtual Medical Society?
The VMS is open to any aspiring medical, dental, or veterinary student from year 10/S3 to year 13/S6.
You can sign up for a portal here to gain access the meeting links:
When do meetings take place?
VMS meetings occur each week via ZOOM on a Tuesday from 5.45pm and typically last 1-2 hours.
You can find more information about the weekly meetings on your Medic Mentor Student Portal.

If you do not already have a portal login, this will be created for you when you join the VMS!
How can I apply for a committee position?
