Grant Milne, a fifth year medical student is the brain behind One 2 One Medicine. The 23 year old completed three years of pre-clinical studies at Cambridge University before transferring to UCL for clinical training.
He also holds a BSc in Management from the Judge Business School at Cambridge University. The medical entrepreneur developed the idea for One 2 One after tutoring A-level students in biology and chemistry.
He said: “Everyone wanted to study medicine. Yet of the thousands of school students who apply to British medical schools every year, only one in five gains a place at their first choice. The application process is complex – every medical school has its own interview style and desired credentials. Many applicants need help, and I knew they would greatly benefit from university-specific advice from someone who has successfully gone through the process.”
One 2 One provides medical school hopefuls with a list of around 100 approved tutors, from which they can choose someone to meet face-to-face or talk to via Skype. One 2 One earns a small percentage of the tuition fee.
The One 2 One Solution
One 2 One supports future doctors in two ways: by one-to-one tutoring and the effective use of Smartphone Apps.
• One 2 One Tutors: By creating a revolutionary tuition system that matches school pupils with tutors studying at their UK medical schools of choice. The tutors help with 5 areas that candidates are required to excel at, by tailoring tuition on a one-to-one basis with the applicant. The tutors also assist current medical students who need additional support.
• One 2 One Apps: By creating innovative iPhone and Android apps that transform the way that future doctors learn and treat patients. Their first App – OSCE Trainer – has over 4000 downloads, or about ½ of all clinical students in the UK with smart phones. Future developments are planned for iPhone and android apps that will help with all areas of the UK medical curriculum.
