What is unique about Medic Mentor’s ethos?
- Medic Mentor is a national social enterprise comprised of medical students and doctors.
- Our main goal is to support and invest in UK medical students by providing expert guidance on careers, PPD and pastoral support.
- We strive to develop our mentors, both personally & professionally, through opportunities such as prizes, scholarships, electives and free modules, training weekends and conferences.
- We are committed to widening access to medical school and we do this by providing free places on all Medic Mentor events to students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Subsequently, we have taught nearly 600 widening access students this year alone!
- We have donated £20,000 towards health charities, UK medical student scholarships, free resources to widening access students and teachers this year.

You might also be planning for an elective, and we have created affordable elective experiences by working with Jaffna Medical School and Jaffna Teaching Hospitals in Sri Lanka. What’s more is that you can collect 100s of points by participating in various Medic Mentor activities, which you can use to save money on your elective. This is our way of rewarding you for your own personal development! For every 1000 points you collect, you can save £100 off your Medic Mentor elective! There is no limit to how many points you can score, and the value of your elective bursary – so start as early as you can to get the most out of these incredible experiences and savings!
