The Medic MEntor Awards Programme

Every student considering an application to medical, dental or vet school should also be enrolled on the Awards Programme because...

1. It increases your chances of getting into medical, dental and vet school

2. It helps you to focus your efforts and achievements

3. It is an impressive medically relevant Award to have on your CV

4. It puts you in the running for a £12,000 scholarship for university

5. It makes the process more fun and less stressful!

Join the Awards Programme

Only students on the Awards Programme have the chance to be selected for a University Scholarship worth up to £12,000!

The Goal

The end goal for the awards programme is to attain at least one offer (or more) from a medical, dental or veterinary school.

Not only is the Awards Programme an incredible accolade on its own, but by achieving the Medic Mentor Gold Award you will automatically secure an interview for the Scholarship Programme worth £12,000!

The Bronze Award: Explore

The Bronze Award is designed for students to explore Medical, Dental and Veterinary Careers.  The Award helps students aged 14 years and over to develop an insight into their chosen profession and make an informed career choice.

The Silver Award: Skills

The Silver Award is designed for students to take their first steps towards developing the skills that they need for Medical, Dental and Veterinary Careers.  The Award helps students aged 14 years and over to boost their CVs, extra-curricular activities, confidence and leadership abilities.

The Gold Award: Succeed

The Gold Award comprehensively prepares students for their UCAS applications to Medical, Dental and Veterinary schools. Over 80% of students who complete their Gold Award using Medic Mentor Approved Programmes have obtained at least 1 offer to read medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine at university.  This is the final (and most crucial) step for students to take before they get ready for medical school!

What is the Awards Programme?

You are about to embark on the most enjoyable, challenging and rewarding programme, that will guide you through your journey into medical, dental or vet school. The Awards Programme is an incredible opportunity to develop your skills, meet likeminded people and stand out as a UCAS applicant.  Students who have achieved the Medic Mentor Gold Award are automatically put forward for an interview to obtain a £12,000 scholarship for university.  So not only does the programme give students access to incredible Mentors and opportunities that boost their chances of successfully applying to these highly competitive courses, but there is also a chance to obtain a valuable scholarship for university.  This is unlike any other Awards Programme out there, and it is specifically designed for future doctors, dentists and vets!

When Can I Take Part?

The Awards Programmes are ideal for students aged 14-20 years of age.  Students can enrol at any time and they will be allocated a Mentor (a doctor, dentist or vet) and a Supervisor to support them through the award milestones.  Students can enter straight into Bronze (Explore), Silver (Skills) or Gold (Succeed) levels.  Each level will take roughly 6-12 months to complete, depending on how proactive the student is.  It is also possible for students to bypass Bronze and Silver, going straight for Gold (because the awards are cumulative), but this will depend on how much has already been accomplished, and will be discussed with your Mentor, during your sign-up telephone consultation.
