The digital health service Push Doctor has announced it will help medical students fund their studies by offering a grant.
The company is offering a £500 grant to medical students in their second year and onwards who are studying at a UK university. Those wishing to apply for the grant are asked to give a brief statement about why they are passionate about becoming a doctor and why the grant would be useful.
Three students will be chosen to receive the £500 grant, which Push Doctor recommends be spent on medical supplies, travel, books, resources and any additional courses. The candidates will be selected in January 2018 and will also receive a one-year free subscription to the Push Doctor Premium membership service.
Push Doctor founder and CEO, Eren Ozagir, said: “We. Awarding GPs the professional freedom to consult for the NHS and privately – from recognise the need for exceptional doctors that are empowered to deliver outstanding care to their patients home on their own terms – becomes a more attractive prospect. We are introducing this grant to invest in the future of healthcare and the next generation of British doctors.
“Equally, we are passionate about providing quality healthcare and making unwell people better, helping the public to invest in themselves and take an active interest in their healthcare.” Ozagir continued.
