Our 6 sessions have weekly topics covering pertinent information such as textbooks, referencing, study techniques and OSCE/SOCA prep as well as structured talks on wellbeing, financial advice and an introduction to the MedSoc family and our Special Interest Groups. These meet-ups are semi structured and we strongly encourage further correspondence throughout the year.
