Medic Mentor Courses
Providing students with encouragement, motivation, confidence and mentoring on their application journeys.
Please note that we have a strict child protection policy. Any child under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult for the duration of the conference and adults must register places separately. These events are large and the Medic Mentor team cannot take personal responsibility for individual delegates. Any child wanting to attend the conference alone between the age of 16 and 18, must complete the parental consent form which can be downloaded here, and emailed to admin@medicmentor at least 2 weeks prior tp the event. Failure to do so will result in you losing your place at the conference. Students aged 18 or over do not need to be accompanied, nor do they need to complete a parental consent form. If parents are already accompanying their children, then they do not need to complete a parental consent form.
We are not allowed to serve food and drink in the lecture theatre. Therefore, please be advised to bring a packed lunch. In order to maximise your time during the lunch break and speak to the Mentors, it would be best to bring a packed lunch with you.
Upon arrival please make your way directly to the lecture theatre. Please ensure that you arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to park and find the venue. Please bring a copy of the email order confirmation of your booking with you. This would have been automatically sent to your given email address when you placed the booking. We do not issue tickets in the post.
Finally, if any of you are Facebook users please ‘like’ the Medic Mentor Facebook page (www.facebook.com/medicmentor) to keep up to date with information about your course and future courses. In the unlikely event that there are last minute room changes made by the university we will be posting it on Facebook.

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.
