Helping doctors – past, present and future.

People working in medicine spend their lives and careers helping others but are sometimes in need of assistance themselves. We provide help to these people, so that they can continue to work and train as doctors even in times of personal hardship.

Medical students who have downloaded application documents in the last few weeks might like to complete the eligibility questionnaire again to check that they have all of the correct documents.
