Widening access
to medicine in Scotland

Developing a national Scottish platform with fair access to resources for prospective medical students.




How can we support you?

Welcome to "You Can Be A Doctor," a Scottish charity dedicated to breaking down barriers and empowering individuals from underprivileged backgrounds to pursue a career in medicine. Our mission is to create equal opportunities for all aspiring doctors, regardless of their socioeconomic status.
