Undergraduate guide overview

The first version of the Graduate entry guidebook was created by Dr Dibah Jiva 11 years ago, making it the longest running product in theMSAG’s repertoire. Since then, she has co-written and published over twenty books related to medical school admissions and was recently a finalist for the 2018 Women in International Education awards. This guidebook, tailored to Undergraduate entry, was co-authored by Mr (soon-to-be Dr) Gerens Curnow - winner of 2 medical education grants, he has completed his MSc in Medical Education and is currently becoming an Academic Clinical Fellow during his Foundation Years as a doctor.

Why use this guide?

The nice thing about having a physical copy of a book is it’s easy to lend, so your students can read through relevant sections on a case-by-case basis. If there is more of a demand, this book can also be used as a group teaching resource: the foundation for running advice sessions for your students on “how to choose a medical school.” It’s great for tackling any tough or unique questions and is currently being used by over 500 career advisers across the UK.
