Who we are

Established in 2019, we were tired of seeing aspiring medical students overpay and tutoring companies underdeliver. We spoke to those who have used these services in the past and will never resort to locking students into 50 hour contracts or deliver a course that has not been updated for years.

So we constructed our systems, created our resources and built a team of outstanding tutors. All our tutors are top medical students and our prices are set at the absolute minimum needed to pay them properly. Part of our ethos is to ensure everyone on our team, from the content creators to the tutors, delivers to an incredible standard and is compensated for their work. Staggeringly, this does not happen at many other companies.

Everything we do is driven by the desire to get you into medical school. We never stop listening to you and take all your feedback seriously.

Our Mission

We want to achieve one simple goal. Guide as many medicine applicants as possible into medical school.

The application is long and there are multiple hurdles. However, with the right application of effort and effective strategies, it doesn't have to be as arduous as it seems!

We can't imagine doing anything other than medicine, it's a forever challenging, wonderfully complex subject that combines complicated problems with helping others.

We're living our dream, let us help you live yours!

A message from our founders

After a combined time in higher education of almost 20 years, we've learned a thing or two about performing in exams.

We've channelled that knowledge and experience and that of our talented team, into systems and resources that are guaranteed to produce results.

We are extremely passionate at remaining the best medicine admissions tutoring company, so we always listen to the person who matters most, you!

Come and join the Mission Medicine family, we'd love to hear from you!
