Make a Medic is a charitable incorporated organisation run by a group of UK-based medical students and junior doctors. They recognise that while the theory of medicine is universal, the resources available to medical students in less privileged parts of the world are scarce. The main aim of Make a Medic is to support the education of medical students and to facilitate public health initiatives in low- and middle-income countries. The projects they run range from providing medical equipment, such as stethoscopes, to funding training programmes.
Make a Medic also offers in-depth online courses to medical students, including “Medicine 101”, “Medicine for Finals”, and “Surgery for Finals”, as well as crash courses in psychiatry, paediatrics, and obstetrics & gynaecology.
The Medical Defence Union is the leading medical defence organisation in the United Kingdom, offering indemnity for clinical negligence claims and expert advice for its members. The MDU was established in 1885 and was the first of its kind in the world. The MDU is led and staffed by doctors who have real-life experience of the pressures and challenges you face every day. Their expertise in medico-legal issues, complaints and claims is unparalleled. They are always looking forward, shaping their products and services to meet the changing needs of the medical profession.
