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.
