During this session JASME were delighted to showcase four Widening Participation (WP) initiatives from around the UK, all led or delivered by students and juniors. This was followed by a panel discussion, where they were joined by representatives from these initiatives alongside Professor Colin Macdougall (ASME EDC) and Dr Louise Alldridge (National Medical Schools Widening Participation Forum). Discussion included what makes a successful WP programme, how this may have changed at the moment with Covid-19, WP going forwards and opportunities to get involved, with a heavy focus on taking questions from our audience.
