Widening Participation Medics Network: Intro event

Widening Participation Medics Network (WPMN) are a charitable organisation who are building a medical workforce that is representative of the population it serves. We are widening participation in medicine by representing the underrepresented. WPMN endeavours to create a united voice for our 550+ aspiring medical students, current medical students and doctors that speaks with authority and power to drive positive change within the medical workforce and enhance patient care.

Join us for our first WPMN Scotland networking event! We aim to bring together current medical students from across Scotland, to support one another and discuss issues currently faced by students from a WP background. Firstly, hear from Dr. Scott-Balgrove, the founder of WPMN, about her experiences of working as a doctor from a WP background and her motivation for founding WPMN. Secondly, we’ll be hosting small group discussions to consider what changes and support we can introduce on a local level.

We hope to see you there!
