Our Track Record

The Medic Portal is committed to widening access into Medicine – and has been since we were founded.

We believe that students with the potential to become great doctors should have the chance to do so. We’re always thinking of ways that we can help make this happen.

We’re proud to work with a number of schools and organisations to support widening access into Medicine. These include:

  • The Access Project
  • ARK Academy
  • The Harris Federation
  • The Elephant Group
  • Kissing It Better

“The Medic Portal has provided so many useful resources, tools and information, the vast majority of which are free of charge, enabling widening access to Medicine to so many. I think it played a fundamental role in getting me offers for medical school.”

Applying For Help

We now deliver all our widening access provision by partnering with schools and organisations. This allows us to reach the highest number of in-need students in the most efficient way possible.

In order to apply, schools must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • 25% or more students in the entire school are eligible for FSM.
  • 40% or more students eligible for pupil premium.

Example provision includes online courses and question banks. We suggest you ask your students to create a free account on The Medic Portal in advance so that any online subscriptions can be granted quickly and easily.

Schools looking to join our Widening Access Scheme will need to complete this form.

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to process applications from individuals.


“It’s really great that you offer bursaries, as it makes students like myself who are capable of studying Medicine but perhaps not able to access such resources able to compete on a level playing field with our more well-off peers.”

Our Commitment to Free Content

The provision of 100% free, trustworthy content has been a defining characteristic of The Medic Portal from day one.

We’ve always been immensely proud of this. Millions of users have now benefitted from thousands of pages of content, without paying a penny!


‘The Medic Portal really democratises the application by giving everyone free access to a wide range of high-quality information that is incredibly useful at various stages throughout the application process.’
