Welcome to the website of the Royal Medical Society. The society is run by medical students for medical students at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.
Any exam tutorial notes provided to us by the tutors are available in the tutorial resources section.
The RMS hosts a number of talks, tutorials and social events throughout the year. Our premises are located in Potterrow in Bristo Square and contain our computer room, medical library, clinical skills resource room, lecture theatre and lounge. Members have 24-hour access to these facilities mid-week and access from 8am to midnight at the weekends. We also facilitate the activities of other medical societies.
A list of upcoming events for the 2016-17 academic year is available below:
Event highlights throughout the year include our Welcome Week for incoming students, the Inaugural Address, the Presidents’ Annual Dinner, the traditional Burns Supper, pub quizzes, exam revision and clinical skills tutorials and many fascinating talks by leading doctors from across the country. The Society also offers funding for members who wish to undertake research or medical placements at home or abroad. Calls for applications are made periodically throughout the year.
New members are always welcome. You can sign up online or call in to the office in Potterrow during office hours. During Welcome Week, you can also sign up at the medical societies fairs in the RMS rooms and Chancellor’s Building.
Advice for potential applicants to the Edinburgh Medical School is included here.
