At MedEntry, we're proud of our role in providing quality, accessible and affordable preparation to those with a passion to pursue medicine and other health sciences. As part of our commitment to the education of students in these fields, we offer various forms of assistance and support to current and past students.
MedEntry’s guiding principles are excellence, diversity, integrity, social justice, affordability and value. The MedEntry Foundation was established to fulfil these principles by:
- Providing financial assistance and access to services to those from disadvantaged backgrounds
- Creating partnerships and collaborating with various bodies, including academic institutions, government bodies, non-profit organisations and corporations
- Forming a community of alumni members to offer and share advice, resources and mentorship opportunities
MedEntry’s story began with humble beginnings: the organisation was made possible by a generous grant from the Foundation for Young Australians. Since its inception, MedEntry’s purpose has always been to provide quality, accessible and affordable preparation to those with a passion to pursue medicine and other health sciences.
MedEntry has a commitment to assisting those from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their goals. MedEntry offers numerous scholarships, bursaries and discounts to students, especially those of low socio-economic status and those residing in rural/remote areas. Overall MedEntry has provided the equivalent of more than $1.2 million in scholarships and bursaries to over 3000 disadvantaged students, without which they may have missed out on pursuing their dream of a career in the health sciences.
MedEntry also endeavours to make meaningful contributions to small communities, and to this end provides preparation courses in under-serviced areas across Australia. You can assist us perform our valuable work by making a donation. Any amount donated by you will be used for helping disadvantaged students. The details of the person(s) who was the beneficiary of your philanthropy will be provided to you unless you choose not to receive this information.
