Brits hoping to enter into a career as an emergency dentist who are from a disadvantaged background are still finding it hard to be accepted into the best medical schools, it has been revealed. medical training

Jocelyne Aldridge, policy officer and widening participation lead at the Medical Schools Council, said at present, just 1.7 per cent of medical school students are from poorer backgrounds and this is an issue which needs to be addressed.

She commented: “We recognise that the barriers to entering the professions, not just medicine, are complex and need to be addressed by society as whole, in schools and by government.”

According to the report Equality and Diversity in UK Medical Schools published by the British Medical Association, financial considerations may be one important barrier to a wider social mix of medical school applicants and this means the heavy burden of debt experienced by most medical students is an increasingly serious issue.
