Medical students at the University of Warwick are giving up their spare time to become online mentors for school children interested in a career in healthcare. Around 35 pupils from three schools in Coventry, Warwickshire and Worcestershire, (Rugby High School, St Augustine’s in Redditch and Coventry’s Sidney Stringer) are taking part in the e-mentoring scheme.
The 21 student e-mentors are all studying at Warwick Medical School on a MBChB degree program to become qualified Doctors. They have been recruited by the University’s Warwick Volunteers program, which offers voluntary opportunities for staff and students, on behalf of educational charity The Brightside Trust.
