What is the Ambassadors Programme?

The Ambassadors Programme allows Junior Doctors around the country, our Ambassadors, to offer a free five-day work experience placement to a school student from a widening participation background.

What is the purpose of the programme?

To improve accessibility to work experience placements that offer a direct observation of healthcare. These valuable placements are few and far between, and are often very competitive. Work experience is an integral part of medical school applications, and often a hot topic in interviews. It offers school students the opportunity to develop new skills and helps them make informed choices about their future.

Mentorship Officer

"I’m immensely proud to be a part of the Ambassadors team, there are many hoops to jump through just to get into medical school and it's a privilege to help students for at least one part of that journey. Overcoming these obstacles is vital to make sure everyone has fair access to at the very least trying to get into med school. I hope to use my past experience and current knowledge to help support and encourage students with aspirations of applying to medical school and eventually becoming a doctor."

"As soon as I had gotten through the medical school application process, I knew I wanted to play a role in making the process more accessible to all. Mentoring with In2MedSchool has been absolutely fantastic, and I am incredibly excited to play a role in the Ambassador division for the upcoming year."

Lizzy Wasson

"I remember how stressful the process of applying for medicine was and was shocked at the lack of diversity when I arrived. I want to help students from more disadvantaged backgrounds to really pack their applications and show the universities all the amazing things they have to offer."
