Year 13 Medicine Admissions Conference - 12th and 19th September 2020

Year 13 Medicine Admissions Conference - 12th and 19th September 2020

I am emailing with an event which may be of interest to your new Year 13s on behalf of the Birmingham Widening Access to Medical Sciences society (BWAMS). BWAMS aims to encourage and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds in undertaking careers in medical sciences.


BWAMS will be hosting their second DR.EAM Senior conference this year.  The DR.EAM Senior conference is an outreach event aimed at year 13 students who are considering a career in medicine.  BWAMS aim is to increase the students’ interest in pursuing a career in medicine and help prepare them for the medical school application process. They will be arranging a series of talks, clinical skills workshops and Q&A sessions at this conference. Widening Access at the Medical School will be helping in the selection of these students according to the University's widening access selection criteria, with priority given to pupils from areas with a low number of students attending University for this event. 


Please do share this opportunity, and flyer (please see attached) with any students or staff within your school as you deem appropriate. This free 2-day virtual conference will focus on the medical school application process, personal statement and interview guidance, life as a doctor and much more! The conference will take place on Saturday the 12th and Saturday the 19th of September 2020 from 9:00am to 1.30pm. Students who are invited to attend the conference will also be given the opportunity to take participate in a mock MMI (mini multiple interviews) circuit at a later date, where they will have the chance to get a taste of the medical school admissions interview process.  


This is an opportunity not to be missed! Please encourage students to apply before the 27th August using the following link: https://bham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/dream-senior-2020-application
