My name is Dr Rebecca Yates and I'm Director of Education for Medic Mentor. (https://medicmentor.co.uk/) We have just finished recruitment for our 2018 School Ambassadors, a national leadership role for students interested in a career in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine or psychology. I'm pleased to inform you that one of your pupils have been successful:-
The successful students have been invited to sit on the Medic Mentor National Schools Council at the first meeting at the end of January. The meeting will compromise of teaching sessions and small group discussions around the challenges students face when applying to these specialties. These discussions will inform the support Medic Mentor are able to offer in the future.
Students will also have access to monthly School Societies Bulletins and online webinars featuring mock interview questions, problem based learning cases and ethical debate topics to prepare students for interview. Students will also be encouraged to use their new skills to support younger students considering these careers.
I'm sure you are very proud of Gemma. We are looking forward to working with them.
