FOR APPLYING STUDENTS

information for the parents

A special welcome to parents who will be supporting their children through the Medical Awards programme.

We know how stressful it is for parents with children who are applying to medicine. Medic Mentor are here to simplify that process, reducing stress for you and your child. At Medic Mentor, we believe in our young people and work with them to help them achieve their dreams and attain success beyond what they could ever have imagined.

how medic mentor aims to support parents

Medic Mentor is here for parents as much as for students.  We are happy to speak to parents over the phone and we welcome you to participate in our conferences and be as actively involved as possible.  We have a combination of programmes where parental support is necessary and where independent learning is encouraged.  Parents are the greatest mentors, and having been through this process ourselves, we have first-hand experience of how invaluable you are.  You will be invited to the initial Awards consultation with your Awards Mentor via telephone or Zoom.  Subsequent meetings can be conducted between the student and Mentor independently if you wish, or you are very welcome to join them as well.

We provide a supportive learning environment, that acknowledges success and helps young people develop areas they are seeking to improve upon. We do all of this through coaching and providing constructive feedback in a positive way for the benefit of their personal development. As Medic Mentor is run by doctors, dentists, and vets, we have the wellbeing of all of our students at the heart of everything we do. All of our Medic Mentors are DBS approved, first-aid trained (as a minimum!) and we have a safeguarding officer at all of our events.

Medic Mentor is committed to our young people and we will be there to support them in all they do with us. If any problems or concerns do arise at any point, you can either email admin@medicmentor.org or ring 01530417299, available Monday to Friday 9-5 pm. You can also contact Dr. Bayana, Vice President of wellbeing directly by emailing wellbeing@medicmentor.info. You can also speak to a Chief Mentor for advice Mon-Fri on the telephone number above if one is available.  If they are unavailable, our admin staff will ask them to call you back.

We require a signed parental consent form in order for your child to partake in this Awards Programme if they are under 18 years of age. There are additional forms required for further activities that students may choose undertake with Medic Mentor, for programmes such as the Virtual Medical SocietyMedical Leadership Programme or the Summer School. These consent forms give permission for students to attend our teaching days independently. If you are just starting out with Medic Mentor, it would be highly valuable for you to attend the Get into Medicine Conferences with your student to establish a strong foundation for medical school applications.

Medic Mentor has a robust Safeguarding Policy in place that ensures that risks to students are minimised as much as possible.  All of our Mentors hold enhanced DBS certificates and first aid training (at the very least). We always make student safey our first concern and if you would like to discuss this with us at any point, we would be happy to speak with you.  Please click here to access our Safeguarding Policy and Protocols.
