One of MedSoc UKs best initiatives is the Scholarship Programme. It gives medical students the opportunity to learn from senior mentors who have excelled in their careers and time at medical school.
We want to equip you with the skillset and expertise to make the most of your time at medical school, to learn the theory of leadership, teaching, effective communication and research, and then provide you with the opportunities to put these skills into practice; learning in real-time with feedback to facilitate further professional development
By participating in these opportunities, you will be able to unlock scholarships worth up to £2000 per year
The Scholar’s Academy is exclusively available to our Medical Student Scholars only.
You must complete your Silver Award as part of the Medical Student Awards Programme to be invited to interview. Based on your performance at interview, you will be awarded a scholarship. We only have 5 scholarship places open for this each year, so the competition is fierce compared with applying for a scholarship as a secondary school student.
Upon receipt of your Silver Award Certificate, you will also be sent a scholarship application for you to complete with details of who and when to submit this to. If you are not awarded a scholarship at university, you can still complete your Gold Award for a chance to access Academic Foundation Application Support and a position on the central committee as a Vice President, when you graduate.
