The School Ambassador Leadership



School Ambassadors should be:

• an aspiring doctor, dentist or vet

• good at communicating with others and able to work as a team
• responsible and reliable
• interested in leadership opportunities
• willing to act as an ambassador for their school and Medic Mentor


All successful applicants will receive a certificate of leadership and a reference from the Vice President of Mentoring, Dr Sharonjeet Uppal. Leaders will have their profiles featured on the Medic Mentor website and be invited to publish articles on their Ambassador experiences in the Mentor Magazine. As a School Ambassador there will be numerous opportunities to boost your CV in terms of leadership, volunteering, teaching and publishing.

Successful students will also receive a certificate in recognition of their role as a School Ambassador and presented at the Medic Mentor Awards in December 2019. They will have a position on the School Ambassador Council where they will play an important role in improving educational initiatives and making suggestions on how to best support students within our prestigious and lively academic network.

There is NO DEADLINE for this application, however once 3 Ambassadors have been appointed at your school, we cannot consider any further applications.  If you would like to know if Ambassador positions at your school have already been filled – speak to your head of sixth form/head of UCAS/Careers Advisor at your school.

What is the Medical Leadership Programme?

The School Ambassador Programme is open to secondary school students in all years. It is the only national medical leadership programme for aspiring doctors, dentists and vets.  The programme provides students with 3 additional teaching days (1 Sunday per term) to help students develop important transferable skills and knowledge that will best prepare them for their future careers.  It also gives students extra opportunities to work with a variety of doctors, vets and dentists throughout the year.  This ensures that we can provide you with ongoing face-to-face mentoring to help you start thinking and acting like medical students in time for your interviews in Year 13 and S6.


Applying for Funded Places

There are 2 ways to enter the Medical Leadership Programme.  You can apply for a funded place as a School Ambassador, or enrol onto the Medic Mentor Residential Summer School for the maximum level of support.

Medic Mentor provide 6 funded places per school (3 for year 10-12/S3-S5 and 3 for year 13/S6).  These School Ambassador positions are awarded based on a competitive application from individual students. There is no deadline for the application, but as soon as we receive a sufficient number of high quality applications to fulfil the places at your school, applications for students at your school will close.  The online application form can be found at the link below.
