Faculty makes big impression at medical education conference

Published: 31 July 2023

The Faculty of Medicine had fantastic representation at the national Association for the study of Medical Education conference this year with research from staff, PhD, MMedSc and BMedSc projects, and graduates, all taking centre stage.

Professor Sally Curtis delivered the keynote speech in which she discussed widening participation and the richness these students bring to the medical school and university as well as to the profession, including how they highlight the need for change in both educational and professional environments. In her talk, she presented the experiences of some of our students, which have been captured through the research of students at Southampton and nationally. Six of our students (Anna Foster, Harry Chapman, Luke Dcaccia, Daniel Jackson, Sandal Butt and Christianah Obembe) took part in the presentation, providing a unique and powerful presentation of the student voice on a national stage.

Throughout the conference our staff and students delivered presentations of their work in a diverse range of areas including The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the early years of medical school; reverse mentoring; imposter syndrome and the impact of the NHS Bursary on Gateway Medical students.
