-A career in medicine/ dentistry- first hand experience
-Personal Statement (PS) Help Centre: Tips and advice on how to write a clear and concise personal statement.
-Admission exam walkthrough: top tips for the UKCAT
-Advice on all 4 sections (VR, AR, QR, SJT), with worked examples of each and time management techniques.
-WECMED 2016 will be followed by the 3rd Annual WEC Careers Advice and Information Day from 4-5pm. This will include information stalls run by experts in a wide range of fields, who will be there to answer any queries you may have.
WECMED is a programme for Scottish students, run by Medical students, Doctors and Dentists; it aims to become a valuable academic resource for the community; we are eager to help, even before you enter medical school! So come down for top tips and awesome help from the people who’ve been through the very process themselves.

To reserve your FREE place (with an optional £10 donation payable at the door for your copy of the speakers materials), you are required to pre-register by texting your name and year of study to the following number: 07759099444
Here is some feedback from last year's WECMED workshop:
'I really enjoyed attending the Workshop today as it was both incredibly informative and extremely enjoyable. Both of the Medical students were able to answer any question that was thrown at them and the UKCAT tips were very helpful. Dr Ghouri's talk was also very helpful as it gave a clear insight into the life of a doctor. I would love for the workshop to happen again next year and benefit other students!' - Student Attendee
'Very good session, we should have regular sessions like this' - Student Attendee External Event Url
