Our editorial team has worked hard to develop and enhance the content and educational value of the monthly publications you receive.
what do you get with your Subscription?
Mentor is a quarterly print anthology that is written by Medic Mentor University Scholars, Vice Presidents, Chief Mentors and outstanding qualified doctors, veterinarians and dentists. It will cover the latest wider reading in the medical, veterinary and dentistry professions and the ‘One Health’ approach that unites these healthcare disciplines. We will also publish the winner of the national essay competition for applying students in Mentor and will publish the winning artwork entry on the front cover.
In between each of the quarterly publications, we will release our miniMentor supplement magazine. This is a smaller publication written by applying students. It is an opportunity for students to publish their original work and to share reflections, experiences and feelings to inspire wider reading and insights during the application process. Contributors of miniMentor will receive mentoring and support from our editorial team to prepare articles for publication.
Once you have signed up for £15 you will receive the first issue in the post. Following this, your subscription is just £4.99/month and you will be sent a magazine every 3 months.
the only national printed magazine dedicated to applying healthcare students
Our aim is to inspire and inform applying healthcare students on the latest topical issues in the medical, veterinary and dentistry professions. This will prepare students for their university application and contribute to their ongoing studies.
We aim to challenge readers’ opinions and enable them to question the information pertaining to healthcare that they may face in the wider media.
Using reflections and insights from successful applicants and current university students, we aim to share inspiration on healthcare and university applications. We also provide opportunities for applying students to contribute to miniMentor to encourage medical research, writing and publishing skills early on in our contributors’ university journey.
Most of all, the magazine is designed to inspire the medical minds of our readership – our aspiring healthcare students.

Editor-In-Chief of the MagazineWelcome to Medic Mentor’s magazines! I’ve had a wonderful year working with Alex and Stephanie to build our publications, and am excited to work with the new team on the next phase of publishing. I’m in my final year of medical school at King’s College London and have a BSc in Medical Humanities, Philosophy & Law. Both writing and communication are invaluable skills for all healthcare disciplines, and Medic Mentor offers a lovely opportunity for students and professionals to learn from and with each other. We hope you enjoy the high quality and variety of writing within the pages of our publications!
Editor of MentorHello and welcome to MENTOR! I’m currently in my third year of dental school and missing clinics in the face of the coronavirus. I cannot wait to get back into the routine of being on campus and seeing my patients. The process of applying to university can be a daunting and confusing terrain to navigate, but reading contemporary medical pieces of work will hugely aid your understanding of some of the topics discussed within the healthcare field. I am delighted to be working with such a great multidisciplinary team and very much look forward to reading all of the submissions. On behalf of the magazine, we hope you find it enthralling and informative.
Tia BellHello. I am a second year Veterinary Student at the University of Surrey, who is intercalating in Zoology at the University of Leeds. I am originally from South London, have a very naughty chocolate labrador and I love working with sheep. I am super excited to be part of the editorial team for miniMENTOR. I am already amazed by your writing enthusiasm, as well as your hunger to learn. I would love for this supplementary magazine to help and encourage students to achieve their goals. I found my journey to university very challenging, which is why I am so passionate about creating resources and a community for students. I aspire that miniMentor will support you in your journey into higher education and your futures too.

I’m so excited to be co-editing miniMentor this year; it’s a chance to collaborate with all the applying students in the Medic Mentor family and it’s a wonderful platform for the more creative side of medicine. My hope is that you will enjoy reading the magazine as much as we do putting it together.
