This year, ASME is proud to announce the launch a new diversity initiative called ENRICH Opportunities which will run every year during the annual conference.
The ASME ENRICH Opportunities offers an exciting experience for a selected number of pupils in S5 or S6 in the summer of 2022 to attend the ASME annual conference for free. This national initiative is designed to actively support young people interested in developing their interests and insight into the field of medical and healthcare education.
Greater diversity within the healthcare profession is a goal that benefits us all. The ASME ENRICH Opportunities is committed to seeking out talented students and is aimed at raising aspirations and attainment among school-aged individuals. This year we are proud to be collaborating with REACH, which is hosted at the University of Aberdeen and is another innovative national programme with the overall aim of widening access to high demand professions including medicine.
We are working with five Reach Aberdeenshire partner schools, these include:
- Northfield Academy
- Peterhead Academy
- Lochside Academy
- Fraserburgh Academy
- St Machar Academy
We will be selecting two pupils from each of these schools to participate in the ASME Enrich Opportunities. To find out more information, check the link below:
