The society hosts a number of lectures, tutorials and social events throughout the year. Our premises are located in Potterrow in Bristo Square and contain our computer room, library, clinical skills room, lecture room and lounge. Members have 24 hour access to the facilities mid-week and access from 8am to midnight at the weekends.

A list of upcoming events for the 2015-16 academic year is available in the syllabus.

Event highlights throughout the year include our welcome week for incoming students, the inaugural address, the Presidents’ ball, Burns supper, academic 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 sign up at the medical societies fairs in the RMS rooms and in Chancellor’s Building.
