University of Birmingham Medical Society

Birmingham Widening Access to Medical Sciences

We are a large, friendly and enthusiastic society dedicated to widening the participation of students in Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Biomedical Sciences, Pharmacy and Nursing.

We work to widen access by visiting local schools and sharing what it is like to study medical courses. We hold fun workshops to give students a taste of healthcare careers and we provide admissions advice for older pupils pursuing an application to Medical School. 

In addition, we host annual Dr.eam conferences at Medical School, where Year 12s and Year 13s can attend a one day event preparing them for admissions tests, personal statements and interviews. Finally, we work closely with the University’s outreach department and help provide mock interviews for Access to Birmingham applicants.

If you want to make a difference in the lives of young people, promote careers in the NHS and gain valuable teaching experience, then join BWAMS! We provide fantastic national opportunities to our members; from presenting posters and delivering workshops at national conferences to submitting widening access motions at the BMA Medical Students conference.
