Empower Youth Academy (who we are)
Empower Youth Academy is a local registered charity (1139613) and non-profit voluntary organisation run by professionals and students with a passion for education and development.

The team is composed of a mixture of medical students and doctors, supported by a large number of senior medical student and doctor volunteers on an annual basis.
Med Success (what we do)
Med Success is a whole day event which provides a variety of activities and experiences to equip prospective medical students with the knowledge and insight to better understand not only the medical school applications process, but also life as a medical student and beyond.
We deliver information in lectures packed with professional insight, along with seminars regarding medical ethics and a one-on-one personal statement clinic to help structure a new personal statement, or maybe make tweaks to your current one.
Every student has been offered an individual mock interview as part of the day, one of the cornerstones of the event.
Why we do it
From the outset, a central tenet of Med Success was the notion that nobody should let their circumstance restrict their prospects. We have always strived to improve the chances of students from underprivileged backgrounds, in particular, proven by our record of charging far less than any other medical school preparation course.
We hope to continue our mantra of providing equal opportunity for all prospective doctors of the future, irrespective of their background.
