VISION

Our Vision​
 

In2MedSchool Acceleration Programme (IAP) was set up with the aim to increase the percentage of schools from where students apply to study medicine. Regardless of educational or socioeconomic background, we share the belief of Michael Marmot as set out in his 2010’s review of existing inequalities, that we need to enable citizens of all ages to maximise their capabilities and thus, the control over their own lives.  Put simply, IAP aims to give aspiring medical students the confidence and ambition to succeed with their educational aims as well as their lives.
