Welcome from the president

Hello there friends, pals, and strangers! It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the revamped and better than ever BSMS MedSoc website. My name is Ollie and I am MedSoc President for the 20/21 academic year. You are free to peruse the rest of the committee right here on this website. If you have any queries or concerns, do not hesitate to contact them.   

This website has a lot of new functions. You can check out MedSoc committee meeting minutes, vote in elections, see the MedSoc calendar, buy tickets to our events, and much much more! The internet certainly is a wild place, but let this website be an oasis of buying tickets, and reading about societies and sports, amidst all the other chaos.  

Our MedSoc is quite unique. We’re not just any old society – we are a mini Students Union for BSMS running all societies, balls, sports, and socials. We have 30+ societies and 8 sports team which are all run by BSMS students. Our aim is to cater to every aspect of university life outside of the BSMS curriculum. Want to teach and learn clinical skills? Then join our AMECS society. Want to take your pants off and sing a song about cancer? Then audition for the Medic Revue. Think there’s something missing? Then start your own society! The opportunities are endless and BSMS MedSoc is here to put on countless great events or provide you with the advice and resources you need to do that yourself.   

We pride ourselves on being one of the most inclusive MedSocs out there. This year I am excited to announce, after a lot of student feedback and debate, that we are introducing a new paired role to the committee – the Diversity representatives. Their role is to ensure MedSoc is catering to all groups of students at BSMS and to make sure everyone feels at home. If you’d like to find out more about their role or have any queries, contact them here

Medicine is not easy and it’s ok to look for help! If you would like extra support do not hesitate to contact our welfare officer Mo Yusuf here

The BSMS Murmur is a beautiful newsletter produced by our students each term, you can read it right here on this site! There is also opportunity to advertise in the Murmur, as well as sponsor our stunning annual balls – The Winter Ball, The Halfway There Ball, and the Grad ball. If you are interested in sponsoring us or want to purchase one of our advertising packages, please contact Sue Sivathas our sponsorship rep here.  

If you have any further questions, queries, or want to know what my favourite Pokémon is then feel free to drop me an email here,  

See you around!
