Who we are
The Medical School Summer School is led by Doctors Patel, Vernazza and Jiva - or Rishi, Rachel and Dibah, respectively. These three, plus the rest of the theMSAG team, have vast expertise about all UK medical schools. Dibah quite literally wrote the book on the subject! In fact, all career advisors in the UK currently use the “Get into Medical School” guidebook written by Dr. Jiva and theMSAG team.
We’re very careful in selecting our teachers and professionals, making sure we’re supported by doctors and medical students with complementary experience instead of overlapping when possible. This gives us a broad teaching range of specific topics within the field of Medicine.We also encourage the continuing professional development of our teachers, so we can continue to push ourselves as much as we push our students.
We pride ourselves on course personalisation. We ensure that every student is getting information that is relevant to their interests and needs. That’s part of the reason we limit ourselves to 12 students per class - it also makes it easier for us to combine small group classes with individual one-to-one time. There is tutoring/mentoring time available every day of the Summer School so that you can book extra one-to-one time whenever you need it.
Along with one-to-one, we use a mixture of small group teaching, debates, presentations, mock practice, and hands-on clinical skills sessions. We also complement our teaching with access to our refined, online courses. Students will have access to these from home, including our online interview course and theMSAG’s comprehensive Guidebook for UK medical school entry.
