Concord’s

‘Medical Futures’ Conference on 3rd March

Tuesday January 30, 2018

Concord College is hosting its first conference designed to give the county’s students an insight into a medical career. We are inviting Years 10 to 12 at schools throughout Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin to ‘The Medical Futures’ conference on Saturday March 3. The conference, part of which will be held in Concord College’s brand new science block, will have capacity for up to 270 students, and is free of charge. Said Concord's Head of Science, Barry Brown: “The conference will provide young people considering a career in medicine the opportunity to gain essential insights into the personal attributes required, career pathways on graduation and how to overcome the numerous hurdles in the rigorous and highly competitive application process. "A number of university medical schools, admissions officers and health care professionals will be attending and the day will consist of a mix of lectures, workshops and also opportunities to chat informally to experts in the field." The programme is being generously supported by The Medic Portal, GAPMedics and Medical Mavericks who all work closely with schools and colleges and will be freely giving their time. Current medical students, a number of whom are Concord alumni, will also be present to provide an insight into life on a range of modern medical degree courses. A keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Divya Chari of Keele University Medical School who is a leading expert in her field. She will be highlighting how cutting edge science is revolutionising medicine. For students interested in attending the conference day, please fill in a booking form by clicking here.
