About Generation Medics

We are transforming healthcare by building an empowered and engaged community of talent

Generation Medics is a multi-award-winning social enterprise founded by NHS Doctors. We are the UK's largest social enterprise and online community run BY medics FOR medics ✨

At Generation Medics we believe that there are talented individuals in every community 

They could become amazing healthcare colleagues – the doctors, dentists, nurses, healthcare assistants, pharmacists, ward managers, optometrists, physiotherapists, biomedical scientists and hundreds of other healthcare professionals – of our future…

But the circumstances people are born into still limit the opportunities they are able to access. We don’t think that’s right.

With access to unbiased and up-to-date information, advice, support and networks, individuals can achieve their potential. Generation Medics was founded to offer this

Our Story

Every day, our dedicated, diverse, full-time team of expert professionals and 4000+ volunteers devote their time, energy and expertise to a single purpose: to inspire and empower people to fulfil their potential, by making medical and healthcare careers accessible to everyone – whatever their background. 

A purpose that’s at the heart of everything we do.

Many people – especially those from more disadvantaged backgrounds – don’t believe they have what it takes to succeed in a medical career, and so they’re letting opportunities pass them by.

When we came into the world back in 2013 (with over 4 years of experience prior to this), we took it upon ourselves to change that. And it’s the fuel that’s been driving us ever since.

Individuals with a common purpose to make a positive difference can make a HUGE IMPACT by coming together

Generation Medics is proof 💫

Hear from our members

Hear from Romoluwa,
an aspiring medic from London ✨

Liv found the uni degree + career she wanted thanks to our Virtual Healthcare Careers Academy and support programme 🤩

I always knew that I wanted to work in healthcare but didn't know what I wanted to do
My parents work hard but didn't go to university and didn't understand the options available during and after I leave school
I was fortunate to take part in a club run by Generation Medics at my school when I was in Year 9, attended their national conference when I was in Year 10 and had a mentor to help me plan out my future
With access to the wonderful supportive team at Generation Medics, their resources and online platform I have looked into lots of careers and now know what I'm going to do and how to get there. I also feel like I have joined a big family of people who want to help each other succeed - I love it!

I was the first in my family - and the first on my street - to go to uni, so I have first-hand experience of overcoming barriers to enter a healthcare career. I can relate to the young people and adults I'm supporting through Generation Medics and I love volunteering here. The difference I'm making is not abstract - I see it with my own eyes.
