Our Wonderful Team
We are fortunate to have an amazing team made of international medical students representing almost all 34 UK Medical Schools. They have been in the same situation as you in the past and are now willing to pass on their best tips to help you succeed!
Each UK Medical School has a Medefine Education Lead and a team of at least 10 student representatives creating personalised resources regarding the application process based on their values and requirements of their individual medical school. We would like to thank our student leads and reps for all their hard work – this project would have not been possible without their support.
Meet The Leads
We are privileged to be working with a vast team of Leads from almost all 34 UK Medical Schools. Each of them is leading a team of at least 10 international representatives who have been studying Medicine within the UK and who’d love to share their top tips and experiences with you.
How Did It All Start?
Two award-winning medical students from Exeter Medical School UK, with a passion for medical education aiming to inspire the next generation medical students. Our aim is to widen access to UK medical schools for international students by providing high quality evidence based information and medical school application coaching.
We are a non-profit organisation and all profits rose through charity events or external donations are being used to create further resources and to host events. Our ultimate goal is developing an online tutoring platform to connect medical students and international applicants from all over the world.
