Imperial College Vision Society
Technology and Medicine
ICSM Vision is an outreach society run by medical students at Imperial College London to widen participation in medicine.
Students from the lowest socio-economic classes are under-represented in UK medical schools. Both the proportion of applications and the acceptance rates are markedly lower for students from this background.
Vision aims to inspire and motivate potential applicants from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing an insight into medicine and guidance on the application process.
Over 3 major conferences, each reaching out to over 150 delegates, we aim to:
• Give disadvantaged pupils the advice and confidence they need for medical school applications
• Clarify the complex, multi-step applications process
