i'm a medical student- we have group discussions sometimes and in large groups I feel anxious to contribute (fear of saying something wrong etc) . tips to overcome this?

I used to face this problem, too. I would suggest that you forget that there are people listening to you and then speak fearlessly. I strongly believe that saying something factually wrong makes you learn even more and shows that you are willing to learn. Although you may feel mortified after giving a wrong response, but believe me no one actually cares.

thanks for the advice, I will definitely do this. it's just sometimes i feel like people will think "wow she's not meant to be a medical student?" if I get it wrong

In all honesty, probably half the class will also have been thinking about the same question but they’ll be too scared to ask too. Sometimes if I think something might sound a little stupid but I really need to ask for my own understanding, I’ll just start with something like “I know this might sound a little silly but...” - not ideal but usually the clinician/ lecturer will reassure you that it’s fine to ask and you won’t feel so bad
