Dear Fine George's Students,

It gives me great pleasure to make you all aware that the SGSU Summer Elections are fast approaching and Nominations week will be commencing on Monday 26th of May.

This means that now is the time to start to think about whether you would like to run for a position on the students' union executive team, become a student trustee or even a year rep! A full list of the positions to be contested in the election, and a list of their roles of responsibilities can be found on our website at:

 http://www.sgsu.org.uk/elections/roles/


If you would like to find out more information about the elections in general or a specific position then please do not hesitate to get in touch. The outgoing officers are always a great place to start!

With this is mind, the sabbatical officers will be holding a series of 'Meet your SU' days on the 21th, 23rd and 27th of May, which will allow any interested candidates an opportunity to see just what the 3 roles entail, and the chance to get some advice from someone who has carried out the role. So if you are interested in hearing more about becoming a sabb, please get in touch!

Kindest Regards

Mo
 
 

Dear SGUL Medical Students
 
I and two other Core Trainees in Psychiatry, Dr Daniel Meek and Dr Patrick Davey, will be running a pilot of our new and innovative Psychiatry revision course, Psychedup, on Saturday 7th June 2014 at Great Ormond Street Hospital, London WC1N 3JH.  We are all London trainees, based at the Institute of Psychiatry and South London and the Maudsley.

The number of Foundation Year training posts in Psychiatry is increasing rapidly and there is an increasing focus on Psychiatry in medical school curricula.  However, there are no revision courses for medical students that focus on Psychiatry.  We are aware that many medical students find Psychiatry a difficult area and so have decided to launch Psychedup as a dedicated revision course to help build students' confidence, knowledge and clinical skills in this area.

The focus of the course will be to cover the major areas of Psychiatry that feature in exams in a relaxed and informal setting.  Our aim is to make the course enjoyable and relevant for exams.  We will offer a series of brief focused lectures interspersed with OSCE masterclasses and multiple MCQ sessions to aid exam preparation.

Because this is a pilot course we can offer it for only £10 per participant.

The course will start promptly at 10.30am and students can arrive to register from 10am.  The course will finish around 6.30pm.  

We have already had a number of students apply so please email me back, Andrew.Camden@doctors.org.uk, asap to secure your place.  Places are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis.

We look forward to seeing you and getting Psychedup together on 7th June!

Very best,

Dr Andrew Camden

SEXISM AT GEORGE'S
We are collating stories from students of all genders about their experiences of seeing or experiencing sexism (whether positive or negative!) on the wards or around George's. Have you been told you're "too pretty to be a doctor" or to "man up" or that" the only place for mothers is in GP-land"?? You can post completely anonymously online at:  http://sgulgensoc.wordpress.com/ or come vent on our facebook page
