We would like to invite you to apply to join a free personal and professional development programme designed partiualrly for medical students from widening participation backgrounds.
My name is Jacob, a junior doctor and Director of The Aspiring Medics Support (TAMS), an registered community interest company dedicated to supporting students from less advantaged socioeconomic backgrounds in their pursuit of careers in medicine. We have seen a rise in students from these backgrounds getting into medicine, but many are having difficulty remaining there. The disadvantages still exist even in medical school.
Seeing this dilemma, we have created the TAMS Scholars Programme. This is a 9-month programme starting in November and ending in July, exclusively for students joining medical schools this academic year from widening participation backgrounds. We will be providing students with free welcome packs (including a free stethoscope) to kickstart their journey into medicine, personal and professional development sessions, free access to medical education resources, and more. We hope to contribute to bridging the gap between students who are from less advantaged backgrounds, and those who aren’t.
Applications for the programme are now open. More information can be found on our website: www.tams.community/tams-scholars
