We hold networking events every semester for students to meet and develop connections with industry professionals in health-related careers. Areas of expertise include medicine, biotechnology, nursing, neuroscience, orthoptics, genetic counselling and more!
In addition to gaining knowledge about your career options, you also have the opportunity to undertake internships or training with these industry professionals. We’ve also been developing some new volunteering initiatives, so stay tuned and join MedSoc to find out more on how to help our community.
- Maximise your academic success
MedSoc wants to ensure all of our members reach academic success and be motivated with their studies. You can expect study groups throughout the semester with snacks, chilled out music and peer tutors to help you study and motivate you along the way! This is the perfect opportunity to make the most out of your study time surrounded by motivated individuals with academic aspirations like yourself.
- Meet new like-minded people
MedSoc loves to collaborate with different societies to bring new and fun events every year. We collaborate every year with the UTS Science Society, UTS Forensic Science Club and the UTS Biohacking Society to bring to you events such as Science Camp, Pub Crawls and the End of Year Science Ball! These events are key social events in the MedSoc Calendar and are great ways to make new friends from different faculties.
We have also partnered with the Creative Intelligence and Innovation (BCII) Society on boat cruise events, and are currently planning a camping trip with Intents (camping) Society. Our collaboration with other societies will ensure you have the most exciting and diverse university social life!
- Have some fun!
Along with our academic, professional and collaborative events, MedSoc runs smaller events like trivia, welcome drinks, movie screenings and pizza parties to get our members together to have a bit of fun and a well-deserved break from their studies. These events are essential in maintaining a well-balanced lifestyle and are a whole lot of fun!
