This virtual event will take place on Zoom.
Welcome from University of Leicester and the Medical Schools Council
Supporting students who are interested in a career in medicine or healthcare
This talk will explore what students need to apply for medicine and/or healthcare courses at university so you can best support your students and advise them on their options. This talk will cover entry requirements, admissions tests, values-based recruitment and much more.
4.40pm - 5.05pm and 5.10pm - 5.35pm
Delegates will be able to choose to attend two of the below talks/workshops:
Medicine with a Foundation or Gateway Year
Find out more about an alternative route into medical school, which have been designed to support students from under-represented backgrounds who have the potential to thrive in a career in medicine.
