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.
