Our Mission

In2Med Insights | Last Updated: 9 December 2020

Here at In2Med, we like to do things a little differently from the rest. Our goal isn’t to make unrealistic promises to students about medical school selection or charging excessively and hoping to churn out medical students with the same techniques and stock-standard responses to interview questions. Our mission is simple. To provide new and innovative ways to prepare students for the UCAT/interview and do so in the most affordable and equitable way possible. To make it even clearer, we’ve separated our mission into 3 main goals:

  1. Demystifying the medical admissions process
  2. Redefining preparation for both the interview and the UCAT
  3. Improving the accessibility to medical entry preparation resources
 

1. Demystifying the medical admissions process

 

The medical admissions process is complex, there’s no doubt about that. Not only do you have the 3 big section criteria (the UCAT, ATAR and interview) but you also have to apply to the relevant universities, plan out your preparation and ensure you do so before the strict deadlines. It can all get pretty overwhelming. As former aspiring medical students ourselves, we know better than anyone just how stressful and confusing this process can sometimes be. So with that in mind, we set out to make this process as clear and as stress-free as possible. 

 

For that reason, on our website and our social media, you can find concise Pathway In2Med videos and pages with detailing every step of the process. The best part – this is free for everyone to access, just check it out here on our website or on your YouTube channel. In the not-too-distant future, you can expect to see school visits and free workshops to help educate students about medical entry pathways and the entire process. 

 

 

2. Redefining preparation for both the Interview and the UCAT

 

Having been in your position a little over a year ago, we know the stress and difficulty associated with preparing for the UCAT and interview. By compiling the tips and tricks that helped us excel in these assessments and consulting other current medical students who have done the same, we have the content and strategies to help you excel in the UCAT and interview. With engaging summary videos, interactive videos, comprehensive written content, a plethora of practice questions and innovative interactive simulations, at In2Med our goal is to redefine the whole preparation process. Check out our insights article about redefining interview preparation!

 

 

3. Improving the accessibility of preparation resources

 

Typically students who have been able to afford and access expensive medical entry preparation resources have been more likely to perform well in the UCAT/Interview, and thus more likely to gain entry into medical school. In recognising this trend, we are trying to contribute to shifting this paradigm in the way we can. Through our online platforms that accommodate students living in all parts of the country, our affordable pricing and further scholarship programs offered to rural and Indigenous students, and, finally, our free workshops and online information, we hope to bring a sense of equitability to the medical admissions process. One of our main aims with this organisation is helping gain more representation for Indigenous and rural students in medical schools, and you can read more about what we are doing about it here.

 

We are truly excited about our mission at In2Med and what we can bring to all of you, the students. If you have any questions or comments about who we are and what we are about, let us know at
