Dr Jermaine Bamfo

Medical School Leavers Mentor & Content Creator

Speciality: Psychiatry

Former Medical School: Imperial College London

Why I joined the MM Team: I was part of only a handful of black students throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate study, and am aware of the different difficulties which can arise being a black medical student and a minority in your course population, as well as the challenges in application.

My big passion is mentorship and welfare – I bring a lot of experience in terms of giving support and advice to incumbent medical students whether it is from an academic perspective, or from other personal matters/thoughts. I chose to pursue Psychiatry because of a passion to increase awareness of mental health and to help people get better in that respect, and I believe that I can bring some expertise in that field to the team.

Interesting Fact: I was fluent in Bengali as a child
