This conference is organised by AspireMEd, founded by a group of UK medical students who developed the idea after seeing lots of expensive and inaccessible courses for aspiring medical students, particularly over recent months during the pandemic when usual events have been postponed or cancelled.
They have some exciting talks in the morning from Dr Enam Haque (chair of the National Medical Schools Widening Participation Forum), Professor Dame Parveen Kumar, Professor John Paul Leach (head of the undergraduate medical school and Access to Medicine program at University of Glasgow), Clare Owen (Assistant Director of the MSC) and representatives from UCAT. In the afternoon, there will be a series of interactive workshops on UCAT, BMAT, interviews and personal statements. Finally, there will be a medical student Q&A panel, where aspiring medical students can ask current medical students about their universities.
