Supporting Medical Students

Dr Manish Patel, a gastroenterology consultant at St Mary’s Hospital and founder of the Dr Mike King Memorial Trust, contacted Portsmouth College and began supporting five medical students through the learning process, giving tips on personal statements, sharing examination techniques and arranging for the students to shadow doctors and nurses at St Mary’s Hospital.

Three of the students successfully graduated to medical college, and two are pictured here with their engraved stethoscopes awarded by Care UK.
