Founder & Trustee

"I set up In2MedSchool to help the next generation of aspiring medics achieve their dreams. My experience as a medical student and doctor has shown me the importance of having medical professionals from all walks of life. The fundamental belief of In2MedSchool is that all aspiring medics should have an equal opportunity in pursing a career in Medicine, no matter their background."

gabriela barzyk


Founding Member & Trustee

"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"

andrew turnbull


School Representative & TRUSTEE

"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 decisions about courses during and after GCSEs. Now being a headteacher also adds expertise and balance to a great team at In2MedSchool."

Our Mentorship Team

Lee fernandes


Mentorship Director (England)

"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."

Joana rodrigues


Mentorship Director

(Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland)

"As someone who had to face their own struggles to become a medical student, I want to help you by sharing advice and supporting you through the process of application. I have a background in teaching and tutoring so I am passionate about helping others. Your experience of being a mentee with In2MedSchool will be rewarding and allow you to get knowledge, experience and advice from people like me who have been through the things you are going through!"

I would love to give back to those who would benefit from the support and guidance that In2MedSchool offers, in order to help others to fulfill their potential and to become the great doctors that they aspire to be!"

"Since hearing about In2MedSchool I have been in awe and inspired by their work. I'm very privileged to be involved with the media team to help showcase the amazing work of the charity's volunteers, as well as helping spread the message about the options and support available to those who would not otherwise get it. I truly believe that everyone who wants to follow their dreams and become a doctor should be afforded the opportunity to apply and succeed in their ambitions. In2MedSchool offers truly unique opportunities to those that would not receive them otherwise and I'm very proud to say I'm a part of the charity for that."

Communications Director

"I think it's of great importance that young people are 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."

Lucy Winrow.jpg


Communications & Mentorship Officer

"Applying for med school without any guidance is something I wouldn't wish on anyone as medicine can seem really hard to understand the application process and make the most of it. It's important that everyone gets a fair shot at getting into med school and I can't wait to help people from backgrounds similar to my own access to as much support as possible."


Our Welfare Team

Hannah okechukwu

Nusaybah Akhmid
