Doctor Tom Milligan

Doctor Tom Milligan
Founder of Future Medics

Future medics has been my project with over three years in development before being launched. I wanted to provide all the information needed for a successful medical school application in one place. I work as a GP in Yorkshire, where I teach medical students and I have previously sat on medical school interview panels both as a student and as a doctor. I want to thank the other experts without whom this project could not have happened who donated their time to make materials to help you get into medical school.

She sits on university interview panels and regularly reads UCAS statements. She brings this wisdom mixed with humility and humour and educates via video and podcast to give you a fuller understanding of the application process without giving away any university specific mark schemes.

“I work as a psychologist and know I can help you with being the best you can be for medical school entry’’.  Rich has broad knowledge of psychological principles but explains them in a simple way so anybody can harness their power.  Through video training he explains how to get the most out of revision, how to impress at interview and how you can make plans that work for you.

Dr Tonya De Bique

Dr Tonya De Bique
General Practitioner

“I wish Future Medics had existed when I was applying to medicine”.  Tonya works as a GP in an inner city GP practice.  She was brought up in Trinidad and so came to see British culture and medicine through the eyes of an outsider.  Her insights on managing patient relationships and understanding the culture of medicine in the UK shine out in her video contributions.

Dr Lewis Jardine

“I helped Future Medics as I studied in a new medical school with an integrated curriculum and want to help others get into medicine’’.  Lewis works as GP partner and is involved with medical students. He is strong on communication skills and understanding the social context of his patients’ problems. Hearing him speak on video will help you understand having  a non-judgemental approach to diversity and its importance for medical school selection.

Dr Alastair Dickson

‘’Getting into medicine was always something I wanted to do, but it only became possible for me as a postgraduate entrant’’.  Alastair brings an incredible wealth of knowledge to the team.  His years of study before coming to medicine give him a unique view on medicine. He first studied health economics at undergraduate and postgraduate level before being a health policy adviser to Parliament. He is now a qualified GP and still advises large companies and an MP!  All our questions on health economics, law and politics are run past Alastair first before they are shared with you! His insights on postgraduate applications are invaluable.
