The Medical School strongly supports outreach programmes to engage with the wider community, particularly schools. All activities are in line with the overall University programme of widening participation and outreach activities.
Medical School outreach activities include:
- Visiting schools to give talks and/or, deliver interactive experiences
- Providing opportunities for work experience, primarily for secondary school students.
- Presenting at Warwick science events (Science gala) and science fairs (Big Bang Fair, Cheltenham Science Festival, British Science Festival)
- Medical School student led activities like the Teddy Bear Hospital project
- Participating in the local activities
- Participating in open days organised centrally.
There are a number of STEM ambassadors in the Medical School who actively work with STEMNET.
