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.

How does it work?
Your free Medic Mentor School Society can be easily set up in just a few steps:
Apply to become a School Society Leader or Medic Mentor Ambassador, by completing the application form above. Please note, that you will need permission from a teacher who is happy to supervise your school society. The Education Directorate can reject applications from students who they feel would not be able to meet the requirements of the role.
If your application has been accepted, you will be notified by email. You will be invited to attend the National School Societies Meeting.
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!
The Widening Access Team will present an online webinar once a month to go through the monthly bulletin exercises and provide answers.
