Widening Access to Medical School

WAMS is a University of Nottingham Student Society established in 2003. We are a group of University of Nottingham Medical Students who are passionate about helping students from the East Midlands achieve their potential.

Our aim is to encourage as many students as possible to consider medicine as a career and to help them get there! To do this we offer a range of events and talks including those within your school or college and at The University of Nottingham. We also run an eMentoring scheme and a work experience programme at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.
