Awards: Medic Mentor Scholarships, Professional Awards and School Society Leaders
We are a national mentoring organisation for healthcare students and professionals. We work with medics, dentists, vets, psychologists, biomedical scientists and nurses. We currently have roughly 8000 members, and work alongside, universities, Royal Colleges, trade unions and similar organisations to deliver effective mentoring programmes for our members, which has already shown to greatly improve their wellbeing, professional development and career satisfaction.
We are a social enterprise, so we are entirely self-funded and we do this by running national careers events for aspiring school students. To the end, we work with over 800 schools in the UK and teach roughly 6000 students each year. We reinvest proceeds back into our mentoring initiatives to support our healthcare colleagues.
This year we have invested £60,000 in the form of 90 scholarships for students at university studying medicine, dentistry, vet med and psychology. The Awards Evening showcases and encourages talented and aspiring individuals who are the next generation of healthcare leaders.
