About Outreach for Medicine
What do we offer?
Outreach for Medicine work with students from over 500 non-selective state schools. We run a series of free aspiration-raising events for students across Key stages 3, 4 and 5, aimed at encouraging students to pursue careers in medicine and healthcare. Many of our events are kindly supported by the Worshipful Company of Barbers.
Outreach for Medicine runs in parallel to King’s flagship Widening Participation course; the Extended Medical Degree Programme (EMDP). For 2018 entry 77 students will be enrolled onto the EMDP, designed for students from non-selective state schools who are committed to a medical career but who may not have reached their full academic potential and may not be eligible for conventional medical degree courses.
