Become a Patient Experience Partner (PEP)
Make your experience count. Use your experience to help shape the doctors of the future.
Patient, Carer and Public Involvement in medical education is essential in terms of developing the knowledge, understanding and skills of future doctors. The General Medical Council also expects that UK medical schools will ensure that patients contribute to medical education as assessors, co-authors of course materials, teachers and in university entrance applications.
We invite you to get involved. You don’t need any particular experience. Our PEPs come from all walks of life, with a variety of experiences of medical conditions, either as patients or as carers and family members.
We provide our PEPs with training for individual roles and we also pay you for your time.
