What?

  • An introduction from VP Finance, Societies Officers, Sports Officers, Community Project Officers - who are they and how can they help you?

  • Minibus Information: How do we do the test? How does the booking process work? What happens if we crash it?

  • Accounts Information: how to find out how much money we are carrying over from last year?

  • Sponsorship Information: Who are societies sponsored by currently? How does the SU plan to expand on this?

  • How-To Documents for example; taking out a float, online subs, donating to charity.

  • Q&A/Feedback Session; as well as a public discussion there will also be a feedback box if you want to be anonymous/don't want to name and shame anyone!

An opportunity to mingle with other like-minded societies: Have they had this problem before? How did they overcome it?

Outside Events

Refugees are welcome march

https://www.wheresthelove.com

Please find a few moments to watch All of these incredible news clips and videos - you will be moved to action. When you have finished, ask yourself, if Shamel's orphaned children find themselves on a refugee smuggler route to Europe, would you sleep at night knowing that our country, amongst others want to turn them away?

Syria is a huge humanitarian crisis that our Governments have disowned for over 5 years. Please join the rally on Saturday 17 September to give a voice of support to those who have made the perilous journey to escape the horror of war and for those, like Shamel's  now orphaned children, who may shortly follow. In the Channel 4's link below please scroll down the page and open each video clip - you will ask yourself "where is the love?".

AFP PREPARATION COURSE

Dear medical students,

 

Our names are Ankur Khajuria (Academic Surgery F2 trainee) and Laurence Robinson (Academic Genetics F2 trainee & George's Graduate!) at Imperial College London and we are delighted to invite you to our course; 'High Yield for AFP Success' is a NATIONAL  preparation course for the Academic Foundation Programme with the aim to provide prospective candidates with non-generic, high yield guidance with focus on the individual application components - advice on white space questions, interviews and sessions on critical appraisal, emergencies, portfolios and CV building. The unique aspect of this course will be the focus on helping you develop strategies/ frameworks for articulating your approach to common clinical scenarios as well as on how to provide succinct summaries on academic papers - the 'high yield' that will score points! We will also go through how to maximise your score in the white-space section and have mock interviews and Q&A sessions providing ample opportunities for you to seek advice from the current academic clinicians. The teaching will be delivered by successful AFP candidates from around the UK who have a track record of excellence, prizes and publications in high impact journals including Lancet and Annals of Surgery. There will be depth and breadth of experience with academic doctors from London, Oxbridge and West Midlands, and them sharing their experiences of the application process.
