About Us


Medically Minded was set up by two doctors who wished there was something similar out there when they were applying for medical school. We are proud of our tutors who are practicing NHS doctors and are young, dynamic and easily approachable. We have gone though the same selection processes for entry into a UK Medical School and have come full circle to sit on the opposite side of the table. We are offering the opportunity for students to benefit and learn from our experiences and hopefully succeed at interview.

Course Directors:
