Founding Member and Trustee

Gabriela Barzyk

"Having had to chase opportunities with various struggles along the way as a widening participation student, I want to encourage and support our future generation of medical students.

My work to set up the foundations of In2MedSchool (through roles including Vice President, Webmaster, Warwick Regional Head 20/21, Mentor, policy and resource development and various other roles) means that I have a good understanding of the needs of our Mentees and the initiative"

Trustee & School Representative

Andrew Bull

"I feel privileged to be involved in In2MedSchool pretty much since it’s inception. Seeing what was a germ of a thought just over a year ago grow into what it currently is, is truly inspirational. A connection in Linkedin with a fellow rugby player from Wasps FC, a few messages and phone calls later and In2MedSchool was formed. Now over a year later the thousands of volunteers and young people being supported in their journey to become doctor’s is well and truly underway!

Having taught in and around London for over 20 years in a variety of schools, with students from many many different backgrounds gives me a real insight into what might work and also what might be possible with Sixth Formers and those making decision about courses during and after GCSEs. Now being a headteacher also adds expertise and balance to a great team at In2MedSchool."

Meet the Team:

Team contact details:

Mentorship Director (England)

Lee Fernandes

mentorshipENin2medschool@gmail.com

"Having gone through the medicine application cycle myself, I know how relentless and daunting the process is. When I was in Year 12-13, I would have loved the extra insight into the process, what to do, what books to get, how to get the most out of work experience etc. And now, since I’m in this position where I can actually provide help, it made sense for me to get involved. "

Mentorship Director (Scotland, N. Ireland, Wales)

Joana Rodrigues

mentorshipSWNin2medschool@gmail.com

"I am passionate about helping others going through the same difficulties I faced when I applied to Medicine. My background in teaching and tutoring allows me to be empathic and understanding. As a Director at In2MedSchool, my role involves overseeing mentoring for Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish pupils and making sure that the resources and support we provide is as inclusive as possible for everyone involved."

Welfare Director

Hannah Okechukwu

welfare.in2medschool@gmail.com

"I am super excited to get involved in this scheme having taken part in other mentoring programmes where I have seen the many challenges some students may face on their journey to medicine. I can’t wait to play my part in giving them much needed support throughout the process as part of the In2MedSchool team"

Communications Director

Nikita Chauhan

communicationsin2medschool@gmail.com

"I think it s of great importance that young people are all given the support to pursue a future geared to their passions, hence my want to work alongside this scheme. Medicine requires an individualistic approach, medical schools need to witness the upmost applications to view each unique mindset.

Academia Director

Adrienn Gyori

academiain2medschool@gmail.com

"Having applied to medical school on two separate occasions, encountering a number of challenges along the way, I’ve accumulated plenty of first-hand experience on what makes for a successful application. With over 10 years of tutoring experience, as an NHS doctor, I’m passionate about supporting I2MS mentees take the first step on this daunting yet exciting journey!"

Media Director

Myurri Lohesan

mediain2medschool@gmail.com

"I joined the team in order to play my part to help those individuals like me, from disadvantaged backgrounds, to achieve their dreams, so that they are inspired to do the same in the future."


Events Director

Anna Chiara Corriero

events@in2medschool.com

"I'm originally from Italy so when I applied to medical school, I felt very lost and insecure. I would like to be the guide that younger me would have benefitted so much from, offering advice and kind words of encouragement."

Events Director

Charmaine Lim


events@in2medschool.com

"Going through the struggle myself during my application, In2MedSchool has given me the opportunity to use my passion in helping other prospective medical students."


Ambassadors Director

Sanjid Seraj


ambassadorsin2medschool@gmail.com

"From working in charity hospitals in Malawi to being a medic for BLM protests, my passion has always been for social change.

Being the Ambassador Director, I aim to empower clinicians to mentor and create more opportunities for schoolchildren of widening participation backgrounds and medical students."

Grants and Partnerships Director

Jenna Stocks

grantspartnerhsipsin2medschool@gmail.com

"In2MedSchool is a great initiative that helps aspiring medics through the medical application process and makes sure each has equal opportunity.
