Make a Medic is a charitable incorporated organisation that is run by a group of UK-based medical students and junior doctors. We recognise that the theory of medicine is universal, however, the resources available to medical students in less privileged parts of the world are scarce. Our main goal is to run projects that facilitate the education of these medical students so that they are better able to attend to the health needs of their wider community.
We produce medical educational resources and run courses at affordable prices for UK medical students, and the proceeds are used to fund medical education initiatives in developing countries. Our previous and ongoing projects include sending a shipment of several hundred textbooks to Sri Lanka, sponsoring a vaccination training programme in Uganda and donating stethoscopes to Kenya and Zambia.
Learning medicine is tough, but the availability of high quality resources can facilitate a student’s journey towards becoming a competent and confident doctor. By using our resources and attending our courses, students will not only be strengthening their knowledge base and building their confidence, they will also be aiding the development of their contemporaries in other parts of the world.
