Structured School Societies Programme for Free

Do you have what it takes to become a School Society Leader or Medic Mentor Ambassador?

If you don’t have a school society, we can help you set one up at school. If you already have a medics society (this includes all healthcare professions), but you would like to get more structure, support and recognition for your hard work, you can easily link up with Medic Mentor’s network. School Societies help us mentor students throughout the year!

Why should you set up a Medic Mentor School Society?

The benefits of a Medic Mentor School Society include:

School Society Leaders will receive certificates for leadership
Your school society will be paired with a Regional Mentor (a doctor or medical student Mentor)
You will receive a school society pack once a month containing interview mark schemes, PBL sessions, ethical scenarios, a journal article to critically appraise and other interactive tasks which you can use to run your school society meetings
School Society Leaders will be invited to to attend a National School Society Conference, which takes place three times a year
Exclusive access to competitions, volunteering, research and publishing opportunities.

Ask other students at the school who are interested in joining the school society to register for free student accounts on the Medic Mentor website.
Your School Society Leader will receive monthly school society packs which you can all work through during meetings.
Your School Society Leader will complete a monthly report and action plan which they submit to your Regional Mentor.
All members will be emailed with details of competitions, volunteering, publishing and research opportunities, once they have created a free online student account!

What if you have issues setting up or running your society?

Leading or being part of a team is always challenging. If you have any problems trying to set up a school society or running it during the year, you can contact your Regional Mentor. Your Regional Mentor is there to support you with any problems. This may involve speaking with them over the phone or inviting them to the school to attend a meeting.
