Empowering the future generation of doctors
How our students are changing the world - for the better
More than tutoring…Empowering the future generation - how our students are changing the world - for the better
We are very proud to consider ourselves not only a mentoring programme, but a community whose aim is to boost students' growth both academically and on a personal level (i.e. developing confidence and independence) through their engagement in local community projects.
As a school student who wanted to become a doctor, Yi-Han wanted to stand out from other medical school applicants. With support from Medefine Academy, she has put together a book titled 'Oh, it's cancer' aiming to help young children understand cancer.
As part of the Medefine Education Academy, Tamar has developed an international organisation, Few for Every Woman, to support the delivery of sanitary products to women in Beirut, Lebanon, following the recent explosion. Tamar’s enthusiasm and project will nevertheless help her stand out from the crowd during the application process.
Tutoring - what makes Medefine Tutoring so successful?
Since 2015, we have successfully taught over 7,000 international students across the world, helping us understand and refine our tutoring strategies and techniques. Our team of doctors, surgeons, and medical students ensure highest quality teaching, focusing on unique content that will make your application stand out from the crowd.
Please note: In order to ensure the highest quality of our services, we choose to only work with a limited number of students per year therefore applying early and joining our waiting list in advance is crucial.
