Mentoring, career advice, speaking at student events, cheering on a sports team...
Some things never change and students always love meeting alumni! Sometimes it’s their first opportunity to connect in a meaningful way with clinicians and role models, especially if they haven’t had access to those networks before coming to medical school.
If you were a member of a particular society or team during your studies you may want to support current students with the same interests. Whether that’s sports, mental wellbeing, comedy or art, we can connect you with the group of students who would love to hear from you. Students are often looking for speakers at their events, or potential podcast interviewees too. If alumni helped you at all during your studies you can appreciate the huge boost this gives to a student.
An ever-popular way to volunteer your time is with our widening access programme, Target Medicine. Here you can chat to high school pupils from under-represented groups who are interested in medicine, sharing your experiences and giving them some insider knowledge of life as a doctor. Our volunteers come back year after year as this is such an incredibly rewarding initiative. Come and join the TM family!
