“At first, I was not aiming as high [academically] because I didn’t have anything I knew I wanted to pursue, but now I’m trying to get my grades up.”

Inspiring the doctors of tomorrow, from all walks of life.

The problem

A lack of diversity in the medical field is a pressing issue; the majority of medical school applicants come from a minority of schools and applicants from underrepresented backgrounds are less likely to be successful.

Our vision

We envision an NHS workforce that reflects the diverse society it serves and where any student possessing the capability and passion for becoming a doctor is able to, irrespective of their background.

Our approach

We believe that the only way to achieve sustained, effective change is through cohesive, long-term intervention. Our three, two-year programmes are designed to inspire, equip, and increase the self-confidence of students who want to study medicine, from year 8 through to year 13. Created and delivered by inspirational young medics, these school-based programmes will transform the NHS of tomorrow by bringing equity to the medical school admissions process and giving students from underrepresented backgrounds the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

In 2021, 18 Ambassadors from two partner universities delivered programmes to 49 young people from five schools. We expect to see steady growth, reaching 70 young people in 2022 and 160 in 2023.
“What I valued the most was seeing the students’ confidence grow as the sessions went on. By Session 5, they were confident enough to have their mics and cameras on and that made a big difference. I am looking forward to continuing next year”.
Debbie, SGUL Lead Ambassador
