ICSMSU Vision is medical-student-led society which aims to widen participation in medicine by holding events for prospective medical students from local state schools.
Each year we run two large conferences for these students, consisting of inspirational talks from practising doctors and tutorials run by a large number of medical student volunteers. The Senior Conference is tailored to Year 13 students who are currently applying, and so we provide each delegate with individual personal statement advice, ethics and admission test guidance and an individual mock interview. The Junior Conference in November is aimed at Year 11-12 students, and aims more to give the students some insight into life in medicine, so the tutorials given are practical and based on clinical cases.
We also run a 'Roadshow' programme where student volunteers go into schools to speak to potential medical students. We also hold several smaller workshops throughout the year.
Our success is completely dependent on the enthusiasm of our volunteers and committee members, with over 150 ICSM Students being involved with our events every year!
To get involved please purchase membership (which is free), this will add you to our mailing list and we will contact you with volunteering opportunities both at our conferences and on the Roadshow programme. We elect a new committee each spring.
