B7: Levelling the Playing Field: How can we remove disadvantage from the Widening Participation student’s medical school experience?
- To understand the unique challenges faced by Widening Participation students at medical school
- To explore ways in which we can ‘level the playing field’, and what needs to change
- To reflect on our own philosophical perspective of Widening Participation
Whilst Widening Participation mostly focuses on applications, in this session we will explore recent research on the WP experience post-matriculation. There will be presentation followed by workshop. Audience participation is invited and valued – by sharing experiences and knowledge we hope to create an agenda for change to create a level playing field in undergraduate medicine.
