Union Update

Hi everyone, Hope you’ve all had a cracking start to 2013! ICSMSU has just finished running a ‘You Said, We Did’ campaign to raise awareness about the changes that have been made across all years of the Medicine, BMS and PTMS courses. You can find out more about all the changes that impact YOU here.

On the more exciting side of things, Shrove Tuesday Final Year Dinner was an absolutely fabulous evening, with a very entertaining guest speech by Prof Meeran amongst the highlights. Congratulations to the STFYD committee on organising such a fitting bash for our final years before they knuckle down for finals revision. And very best of luck to everyone finding out the results of their Academic Foundation Programme job applications today!

And finally, don’t let the January blues get you down! There is PLENTY coming up to keep you on your toes this month at ICSM, kicking off with the new-look RAG week 2013 at the end of the month – it promises to be the best RAG week in ICSM history! To add the icing on the cake, RAG Dash to Amsterdam was a complete sell-out so well done to the lucky ones who managed to get their tickets! Start getting excited…


Focus on Alcohol – You, Your Patients & Alcohol

You can find more info about this event here.
