Meet Your Mentors

Our mentors are current UK Medical Students or current Doctors. These guys are there to help support you inside the hospital and also provide the interview and clinical skills sessions. Our UK medical students all have at least 2 clinical years training and have all been through the process you are about to. They are there to provide all the advice and guidance you need, so make the most and ask them as many questions as possible.  If you want to find out a bit more about them, click the "Meet the Mentors" button.

"One of the best parts about the course was that not only did we get hospital work experience, but the organizers also managed to cram a ton of information regarding medical ethics, interviews and general advice."
Shania - Pre-medical - Aged 17

Shadowing doctors, I learnt about parts of medicine that I was not aware of before. The mock interviews conducted really helped me get an insight of the actual interview that is required for entry into medicine.

"Medical Projects allowed me to get invaluable work experience in India. I saw a whole range of specialities in the hospital from orthopaedics to general medicine to oncology.  I can't recommend Medical Projects enough!"
