About Warwick WHAM

Warwick WHAM is a student led outreach society dedicated to widening participation in healthcare and medicine. We run a thriving mentor scheme pairing people interested in applying to GEM with medical students with similar backgrounds and experiences. We also run online information events designed to open the door to medicine and remove the barrier for people interested in a career in medicine. Alongside our mentoring scheme we are running events around graduate entry medicine, medical entrance exams, financing medicine, life as a WP student.

We are also piloting a new scheme opening the door into foundation applications and pathways beyond medical school.

What is Widening Participation?

We take a lifecycle approach to Widening Participation, meaning that as well as working to widen access to medicine for groups who are currently under-represented in medicine, importantly we try our best to support students all the way through medical school, to thrive in their studies and onto their future careers.
