Volunteer for the RMBF Campaign

Volunteer for the RMBF Campaign

Medic Mentor has launched a campaign to raise money for a Doctors’ Hardship Fund, in partnership with the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund (The Doctors Charity).  Our aim is to raise £10,000 to support doctors facing physical, psychological and financial distress as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  During these times doctors have been working long hours, in difficult situations with limited resources. They are faced with an increased number of deaths which has a signifciant emotional and psychological toll.  The fund has been established to ensure that doctors receive the support that they need to stay healthy, so that they can continue to work as doctors and protect the general public.  Most doctors are physically and emotionally resilient, but there are exceptional circumstances that challenge even the most resilient medics, and the RMBF have been around for over 180 years providing that extra support when doctors need help the most.

We are not only seeking donations, but also exceptional volunteers to helps us acheive this goal.  This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to undertake volunteering safely from their homes so that they can contribute to a worthwhile cause, whilst also maintaining social distancing guidelines that have been outlined by the government.  Please visit our COVID-19 Mission page for more details on how to donate and volunteer to support the campaign.  We look forward to working with you!

Medical Reapplication: A Non-Standard Entry Into Medicine

My journey into medical school was…quite out of the ordinary. From 4 unsuccessful med applications, to applying for biomedical science through clearing and finally securing a place at Anglia Ruskin’s medical school, I’m genuinely impressed by how far I’ve come, regardless of the hurdles thrown my way. I know plenty of you are in a similar situation and can understand and relate to my stress. Therefore, I hope sharing my journey will uplift your morale and bolster your confidence with your medical application process, as well as steering clear of the pitfalls I encountered.

The Journey to Medical School: How to Avoid Getting Overwhelmed and Excel in Your Application.

Firstly, you should be so proud of yourself that you’re applying to medicine. While the process will be tough, require lots of resilience and determination, the reward of becoming a doctor will be worth it in the end. But I know what you’re thinking: “Medicine seems so hard to get into, there’s so much to do (and the UCAT is the strangest exam I’ve ever seen)”. Those were my thoughts too, and I was so overwhelmed at the beginning – it really can make our brains frazzle sometimes. But let’s break this down into chunks. This is how I aced my journey to medical school.

Medical School Rollercoaster: A Journey of Resilience, Rejection, and Redemption

Around this time last year I received four medicine rejections and thought that that was the end of my medicine journey for that year. Seeing everyone around me receive med offer after med offer, picking out student accommodation and hearing my friends talking about their medicine courses in lessons with teachers was incredibly difficult. I had given it my all and it just didn’t seem to work out for me.
