The Medical Wider-reading Study Series

A free long-distance study series to help you stay on top of important subjects such as current affairs, medical ethics, clinical scenarios and interview questions!

What is the Study Series?

The study series is a free, long-distance learning programme. It has been designed to help our students develop their insight and knowledge into topics that are vital to their applications; these topics are rarely covered in school curricula. Study Guides are emailed out each month to all of our members and contain interactive tasks including the following:

A clinical problem-based learning (PBL) case
An ethical scenario
An interview question
Critical analysis of an article
A current affairs debate

Each study guide is partnered with an online webinar hosted on youtube that is taught by Dr Lauren Quinn (Vice President of Educational Resources), and her team of Scholars.  This gives students a chance to work through the exercises with a Mentor and they can post questions to Dr Quinn using the live chat function during her online lecture!

How the Study Series can be used in schools…

The Study Series is a valuable tool for our School Societies Network, because it helps to provide our students with interactive tasks to undertake during society meetings that they run at school.  Dr Quinn and her Scholars scour through all of the latest news articles and select the most relevant subject to discuss.  This saves our students valuable time, so that they can focus on the areas that are most likely to come up in the interview!

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.
