Our Tutors

At Dukes Medical Applications, we go to great lengths in finding the best people to support you through the application process. They are the key to your success – and ours – so our tutors are the most important factor in everything we do.

All our tutors have been educated at leading medical schools, and 85% of them at either Oxford or Cambridge. Not only have they been through the application process successfully themselves, but they have also experienced the particular skills that are taught in medical school, how to relate to patients, how to handle difficult situations and many other challenges. They are then able to use this knowledge to inform all the work they do with you.

If you are interested in becoming a tutor with Dukes Medical Applications, please see how to begin Working With Us: we are always eager to hear from bright, enthusiastic people who have studied at medical school and would like to help support the next generation of doctors.

Selection Criteria

Dukes Tutors go through one of the most rigorous selection processes in the UK. For one-to-one work, tutors must provide evidence of their academic qualifications and valid proof of an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance to work with children, as well as their right to work in the UK.

All our medical tutors are interviewed by a senior member of staff before we invite them to become a Dukes Tutor. Following this, they are recommended for specific roles within our education consultancy services, depending on their particular expertise and gifts – whether that be interviewing, tutoring, working at our in-school events, supporting students with admissions tests, or mentoring.

Our tutors are then trained by a team of dedicated education consultants based at our headquarters in central London. These act as a focal point for information, research and further work with our team of former medical Admissions Tutors. Alongside these, we have a number of former Admissions Tutors and specialised education consultants on our Advisory Board – many of whom attend our courses and give support directly to students.

Tutors also receive in-depth training from external interview specialists to help them give the best possible support to students. At every stage, our applicants’ needs are the focus of our work.

We constantly review our tutors based on their feedback and results to ensure that the students we work with are receiving outstanding guidance and support at every stage of their application to medical school.
