MEDSOC now 7th biggest society on campus!!

 

 

Medsoc Introductory night The student doctor community of NUI Galway, came out in force to welcome themselves back to another college semester this week. The introductory evening, organised by the Medical Society, promised the obligatory few wise words and of course, the traditional wine and cheese! Presentations were made by those who had gone before, to help students get their bearings, and certainly, the tricks of the trade and secrets to avoiding the

wrath of certain professors were duly passed on! Chat was aplenty and those who were far from home were made to feel at home, with students from as far afield as Canada, the US and Malaysia! The Medical society is proudly sponsored by Bank of Ireland, The Cellar Bar , O’Briens Off Licences, the Medical Protection Society, and ProMed.
