Medic Mentor recognizes and acknowledges talent at every opportunity. That is why we have the Medical Student Essay Competition and a series of Scholarship Prizes. Every year, we will award medical students and scholars who have excelled either in their work with Medic Mentor or beyond.
We will recognize the skills and attributes that we are seeking to develop in all of our scholarship students: teaching, leadership, mentorship, communication, and publications. Our prize winners are role models for our network of aspiring students and ambassadors for our scholarship students.
There is no limit to the number of awards or the number of times an award can be given to a scholar. We will award the most exceptional scholar on an annual basis

By giving them access to prize opportunities to recognize excellent work.
Winning scholars will receive a shield/trophy with their name engraved, and they can keep this shield for one year, after which they will have to return it to pass onto the next prize winner.
