Edge Hill University Medical School will host a free, online Teachers and Advisers Conference on the 28th of June 2023 (10am-3pm). Teachers and careers advisers that serve students from under-represented backgrounds will be invited to attend, targeting the areas of England that have limited engagement with medical schools. The conference will enable teachers and careers advisers to better support their students throughout the application process and help them apply successfully to medicine.
The conference will provide up-to-date information and advice on the application and admissions process to medicine. Sessions will be delivered by medical school staff and academics (including admissions leads), medicine careers advisors, clinicians, and current medical students. The conference will include presentations outlining the admissions process and entry requirements, a Q&A session, as well as a choice of workshops on the interview process and how students can gain the right work experience. Participants will also be provided with an overview of allied courses/careers in health and social care and will be provided with links to relevant resources.
