Our eMentoring scheme is designed to help you on your journey to your future healthcare profession.

The eMentoring scheme is open to anybody in Year 10 or above with an interest in studying medicine, biomedical science, healthcare science or dentistry. Our eMentoring scheme is an online resource that provides the opportunity for you to be mentored by a Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry student.

“It's so useful to have someone who is experiencing medical school first-hand to ask any questions, whenever you have them. You're able to find out things that aren't just on Google (finding information on the realities of the career is something I struggled with before I got my mentor) and is especially useful if you're not sure whether or not medicine is the career for you”
