ICSMSU Vision is a society established over five years ago, with the aim of widening participation in medicine. We believe that doctors should be representative of the population they serve and as such entry to medical school should be on the basis of aptitude and suitability to the profession alone.
What Do We Do?
Our aim is to support students from our local state schools who are interested in studying medicine, but lack the appropriate support at school. We run:
All these events are targeted at our local schools, which receive discounted tickets and support throughout the year.
How Can You Be Involved?
We are ALWAYS looking for enthusiastic new volunteers from all years. We need volunteers for both conferences and for Roadshow – to run tutorials and mock interviews, visit schools and help out generally. It’s a great way to pass on all that expertise you gained during your own application!
To get involved:
Our Committee come from all years and are responsible for running our events and for keeping in contact with our school list. We elect the new committee in the spring and welcome applications from all years – we’re looking for enthusiastic people; experience is not necessary!
