Do you work in the healthcare sector? The Access Project is looking for healthcare professionals who are not doctors or dentists to come and speak to our highly motivated Year 12 students about their future careers.
What’s the event?
This event is part of our Medicine and Dentistry Society, designed to help aspiring medics and dentists learn about the healthcare sector as a whole, build their understanding of multi-disciplinary teams, and learn about career options they might not have come across before.
There are two parts to the event:
- A workshop, run by us
- Speed networking – small groups of Year 12 students will rotate around a number of volunteers, talking to them about their career and how they got there.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for anyone who works in healthcare, but is not a doctor or a dentist (sorry doctors and dentists!) Nurses, radiographers, physiotherapists, optometrists, occupational therapists, public health officials – any and all medical professions are welcome!
Who are the students?
Our students are aspiring medics or dentists from disadvantaged backgrounds. They have come through a competitive application process to be part of our events programme, and have achieved the grades at GCSE for Medicine or Dentistry courses to be a realistic ambition.
When and where is the event?
We are holding this event in two different locations (timings are for the speed networking part of the event):
Wednesday 23 February: JQ Modern, Birmingham, 17:30 to 18:30
Thursday 24 February: To be confirmed, London, 17:30 to 18:30
