Last year marked the first ever ‘Medical Futures Conference’ at Concord, where students from across Shropshire, Telford, Wrekin and even further afield gained valuable insights into future medical careers.

Students from 16 schools across the region attended, alongside 70 of Concord’s prospective medics.

The day comprised of lectures, workshops, practical sessions and informal discussions with an array of medical professionals, admissions officers and current medical undergraduates – some of whom, were Concord Alumni.

Last year’s conference was ‘a huge success’…

Head of Science and organiser of the event, Mr Barry Brown said: “Students received valuable advice on how to write excellent personal statements, choosing the right medical school and thriving in interviews and admissions tests.

“All students were given the opportunity to take part in both theoretical and practical-based workshops too.

“The 14 universities represented also advised on the application process, and tailored help to all the pupils in deciding where best to apply to.”

Mr Brown added: “The day was a huge success, and I would like to thank all involved in the planning, organisation and delivery of the conference.
