Our Trustees


Brian Wang


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


Co-founder & 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 bull


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


Joana rodrigues

"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."


rohan Chikhal


Head of National Mentorship Data & Analytics 

"I'm thrilled to be a part of the In2MedSchool team because it allows me to assist students from all kinds of backgrounds across the UK! In2MedSchool is a platform that assists students in overcoming barriers to higher education while also providing important guidance to those in greatest need. I am a firm believer in equal opportunities for all, and I will use this platform to share my experience, advice, and support with students considering a career in medicine."

Heynes Brown


National Mentorship Coordinator

(Northern Ireland)

"I am very excited to be a part of In2MedSchool! Applying for medical school can be a seemingly endless challenge, with personal statements, aptitude tests and interviews. Having been through the entire process, I know it isn’t as daunting as it first might seem! 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!"

Wales - Abbie
Abbie Wilding


National Mentorship Coordinator


"Having come from a Widening Participation background as a first generation university student, I can remember how difficult and isolating the application process can be. I want to do my best to improve that for future medical students."

London & Midlands - Sana Habib
Italia Leech


National Mentorship Coordinator


"Hi! I’m Italia, I’m a medical student from the University of Leeds and I’m currently intercalating at HYMS. I’ve been a Regional Head for 2 years so I can’t wait to continue with In2MedSchool in my new role!"

Sana Habib


National Mentorship Coordinator

(London & The Midlands)

"As a medical student from a widening participation background, I understand how how relentless the application process can prove to be especially without support. I really value the role In2MedSchool plays in helping students through such a challenging time and how they contribute to diversifying Medicine. Last year I really enjoyed my role as Regional Head at The University of Sheffield. This upcoming year I look forward to being part of the National Mentorship Coordination team to help support the new Regional Heads in their role."

"I am so proud to be part of this fantastic initiative where I can play my part in helping aspiring medics from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve their goals of getting into medical school. This year I am delighted to have been promoted to a National Mentorship Coordinator for England, having previously been a Southampton Regional Head and a mentor.

Scotland - Laura Low
Laura Low


Schools’ Engagement Coordinator 


"As someone with a range of mental health conditions, I was immediately disadvantaged when applying to medical school. The impact of mental illness on daily life is still underestimated and fields, like medicine, are difficult to break into when you have more barriers to face than others. Supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds, particularly those with mental health conditions, and providing them with opportunities that I never had myself, are why I dedicate my time to In2MedSchool."

"I believe medicine should be accessible to everyone. My own route to medical school was far from straightforward, and I appreciate how overwhelming the application process can be. In2MedSchool is a fantastic programme and I am beyond excited to be joining the national mentorship team this year. I’m looking forward to supporting our fantastic team to continue to expand this programme and help as many students as possible achieve their dreams!"

I hope to facilitate a whole range of events that really make this possible."

"The UCAT is a demanding test, and one of the biggest hurdles prospective medicine applicants face. There’s lots of resources out there but these can be expensive and difficult to navigate. With In2Med I hope to make practicing for the UCAT a bit easier and give students the tips and tricks to be successful on their test day!"

“The personal statement can be a major opportunity or challenge depending on the resources we have to hand.

Charlie Bailie


Academia officer


“As a graduate student who had to interview for their first degree, as well as several full time jobs, I'm used to answering hard questions. Producing resources and working as an Interview Officer for In2MedSchool is an important step to making sure all our students who step foot in an interview room have the best shot at success."

Arjan Singh


Academia officer


"I’m Arjan, a junior doctor working in London. With every passing moment a career in medicine is becoming inaccessible for those from a low income background. If we are to represent the population we treat we cannot have doctors solely from privileged backgrounds. The interview is where many of these potentially fantastic candidates are filtered out. I am here to deliver a new and effective interview course to ensure that In2MedSchool mentees are 100% prepared."

Lucy Winrow.jpg


Mentorship liaison 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."

Cambridge - Lucy Li.heic
Lucy Li

Welfare Officer

"The medicine application process is gruelling in itself and factors that leave you in a disadvantaged position can create big inequalities in applicants. I joined the In2MedSchool team to bridge that gap and support those from disadvantaged backgrounds in their application so that they have the best possible chance of securing an offer. I look forward to working with this amazing team and make a real difference."
