WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?
We are the only company that provides in depth career advice and support with the medical school application process. At DreamSmartTutors we understand that you want to be a doctor but how much do you really know about the working life of a doctor?
Fundamental to the role of a doctor is working in partnership with patients. Doctors have a duty to provide their patients with all the pertinent information so that they can make an informed decision regarding their care. We apply this same principle to the students we work with. Choosing a career at a young age can be difficult to do without adequate experience. We understand how hard it is and this is why we provide all our students with a realist overview of a career in medicine. We also support them if they want to pursue a medical career, starting with their medical school application.
Choosing a career like medicine should not be a light-hearted decision nor should it be someone else’s decision. At DreamSmartTutors we are career experts. Why? We are doctors who have dedicated our lives to medicine and gained a plethora of experience which we can pass on to the future generation of doctors- YOU!
We provide prospective medical students with a deeper understanding of the career path of a doctor, the various types of medical and surgical specialties including the wide range of opportunities that exist within and outside of medicine. We also ensure students understand the history and structure of the NHS and the ongoing political issues surrounding the medical profession.
Although we have medicals students working with us at DreamSmartTutors we believe that students pursuing a medical career need to be connected with doctors because life as a medical student and doctor are quite different! Yes, medical students are exposed to clinical life but one of the main differences between a doctor and a student is the responsibility acquired for patients when a student becomes a doctor.
Our founder, Dr. Baptiste has always enjoyed teaching. Her passion for teaching stemmed from the number of flaws she identified as she attended primary and secondary school, university and working as a doctor.

Dr. Baptiste ensures that all team members at DreamSmartTutors are also passionate and committed to supporting the next generation of future professionals.

We have a team comprised of medical professionals at all levels, from medical students who have recently been through the application process to junior and more experienced doctors.
