This week is British Science Week. I’m a young doctor and a PhD student at the University of Manchester. Some fellow doctors, medical students and I are organising a day-long workshop at Manchester Royal Infirmary to help young students (aged 14-18) consider Medicine as a career to become a doctor. This workshop is specifically targeted at students from non-traditional backgrounds. Date: Sat 24th March 2018.
The registration fee is £30 (we are non-profit). However, if the child comes from a low-income background, they can apply for a bursary (100% discount). We have 12 bursaries remaining to give out so the deadline has been extended to this Friday (16th March 2018).
For more details, see our website at www.intouch.org.uk
Please share with young students or any parents with young students who may be a little bright and just need some help to get ahead.
the Northwest has the most underperforming schools in the UK
in some parts of Manchester, up to 50% of families are living in poverty.
What are we doing about this as a community?
