The Medical School in collaboration with the Student Affars and MSSS recently announced the formation of Specialty Interest Societies (SIS). The aim of an SIS is “to provide a platform for all those who are interested in a specific career and equip them with the relevant background information and experience in order to be able to make a correct choice and/or take the necessary initial steps towards such a career. This shall be achieved by informative and/or practical sessions (e.g. lectures, visits etc.) in cooperation with other relevant organizations, if necessary. To register, students can team up with their fellow students and apply through the MSSS.”
The Field, Emergency and Wilderness Medicine Society (FEW) and The Surgical Society are the first two SIS formed by medical students this year.
