e-Mentoring Scheme

Are you a Year 10 or above school student interested in Medicine or Dentistry? Our e-Mentoring Scheme is an online resource that provides the opportunity for you to be mentored by a PU PSMD medical or dental student. This is a secure platform for you to hear first-hand experiences of our application and interview processes, and hints and tips on personal statements.

It also offers you the opportunity to ask various questions about the medical and dental courses and general questions about life as a medical or dental student. This scheme gives extra support from a mentor who will offer you information and guidance to help you feel prepared for your next steps.

To build on the success of the e-Mentoring Scheme and to support our existing students, some of our former e-mentors now working as Foundation doctors, act as mentors for our Year Three medical students to support them through the notable transition from Year Two.

Dental Alumni who are undertaking their Dental Foundation 1 roles are also acting as mentors for our Year Four dental students.

Your mentor will offer you information and guidance so that you feel prepared for your next steps. Get in touch to find out more – email: PSMD-outreach@plymouth.ac.uk.
