Applications for the IME Student Council 2017-2019 are now open!
The IME Student Council is a team of sixteen medical students from universities around the UK brought together to form a student-led subgroup of the Institute of Medical Ethics (http://www.instituteofmedicalethics.org). Formed in 2014, the council works to promote interest and awareness of medical ethics, improving access to ethics-related events, conferences and educational resources.
We are looking for students to join the council to represent their medical schools and region. This year the council is looking to recruit eight new student council members to replace the outgoing members of the council.
The council will meet at least once a term to discuss progress, share news and plan for the future. In addition there are multiple opportunities to sit and participate in other IME groups e.g. the Education Committee, Research Committee and Board of Trustees.
· Actively participate with the council via meetings and electronic communication.
· Work with the council on current projects and plan for the future.
· Maintain regular contact with fellow regional representatives.
· Establish and maintain communication links with your medical school and region to accurately represent their views and needs.
· Advertise IME membership and events.

· The name of your medical school and year of study.
· A short statement explaining in no more than 300 words why you would like to be a member of the Student Council.

Calling 4th and 5th year medical students – Help shape surgical education of the future!
The Royal College of Surgeons (Eng) is calling on all final and pre-final year medical students (not just budding surgeons!) to answer a ten-minute anonymous questionnaire on your experiences of surgery at medical school. The questionnaire seeks to explore your opinions on your surgical education so far and how it’s shaped your career choices so far. Your responses will help inform what surgical education and careers support for students looks like in the future.
To take part, please follow this link to complete this quick survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/UndergradSCareer

London Medicine are a group that consists of the Heads of schools of medicine, dentistry and associated clinical academic institutions in London. All of the five London medical schools are members of London Medicine. We carry out work on the key issues that affect medical schools and their students. You can find more information on our website here.
One of the key topics we are currently working on is that of undergraduate clinical placements. Within this we have been looking at issues including how placements are funded, the quality of placements, and the availability of placements.
As part of our work on undergraduate clinical placements we are now setting up face-to-face meetings with medical students for an informal chat in order to discuss your views and experiences of clinical placements in more detail. If you would be happy to take part in this please let me know and myself or a colleague will come and meet with you over coffee for up to 30 minutes to talk about your experience of placements. This would take place in April or May 2017, and we’re happy to work around your timetable to find a convenient time to meet. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Any information you provide will be anonymised.
Through carrying out these meetings and discussions we hope to find out more on how placements could be improved to better meet the needs of students. This information will then be shared with the members of London Medicine, including the Heads of London’s five medical schools, and so the findings will be used to drive improvements in the placements system.
I am delighted to be writing to you with information on the inaugural Target Ovarian Cancer essay prize being delivered in partnership with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).
More women die as a result of ovarian cancer each year in the UK than all other gynaecological cancers combined. At the moment, women with breast or uterine cancer are twice as likely to be diagnosed with early stage disease as women with ovarian cancer and early diagnosis is key if more women are to survive this disease. Ensuring the doctors of tomorrow are aware of the symptoms of ovarian cancer and how the disease presents is a vital step in ensuring more women are diagnosed sooner.
Essays are therefore invited on one of the following topics:
* Early detection of ovarian cancer. Is it possible?
* Screening for ovarian cancer. Are we there yet?
* Early diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Does it matter?
These titles are intended to encourage students to read more widely on ovarian cancer, to think about some of the current issues and learn about recent research.
The prize is open to all UK medical students. There will be a first prize of £500 and a second prize of £200. Essays are to be no longer than 2,000 words with up to ten references. The deadline for submission is Friday 30 June 2017 with all completed essays to be emailed to email@example.com. Essays will be marked by a judging panel comprising representatives from RCOG and Target Ovarian Cancer’s GP Advisory Board. Winners will be announced in autumn 2017 with prizes to be awarded at an event jointly hosted by the two organisations.
If you have any questions or for any further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
