Medic Mentor Courses
Providing students with encouragement, motivation, confidence and mentoring on their application journeys.
If you are thinking of pursuing a medical, dental or veterinary career then the Medic Mentor Awards Programme is a fantastic starting place. Every student who goes on to apply to university should also strive to achieve their Gold Award, which guarantees them an interview for the most sought after scholarships to support students throughout university. In order to join the Awards Programme, you must register online here. There is a £50 one-off sign-up fee which will span all 3 awards. Once you have registered, you will be emailed your Starter Pack, posted the latest issue of the Mentor Magazine to support your learning and allocated a Mentor (doctor, dentist or vet) and an Award Supervisor (also a doctor, dentist or vet). You will be posted your Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates when you complete each award.
Over the next year or so, you can work through the Awards categories at your own pace and your Mentor will guide you. They will also sign you off, once you have completed each stage and award you with a pass, merit or distinction. You can book a telephone appointment to speak with your Mentor at any time, using the following contact form: https://medicmentor.co.uk/book-a-telephone-appointment/
You will also be required to send your certificates, references and evidence for each Award Category to the following email in order for your Supervisor to sign you off: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that you have a 14 day cooling off period in which to change your mind and receive a full refund. Following this, refunds will not be possible. Thank you.
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.
