As you can see from these made-up quotes, our reputation speaks for itself. We have won Best Departmental Society at the national BICS awards in 2021 and 2022.
UG's Medical Society are the undisputed frontrunner of all the Irish Medical Societies and are probably the most attractive society on campus.
We are a resource for all students of UG, holding many exciting events, fabulous fundraisers and brilliant balls.
We promote education, social activities, and extracurricular activities of a wide variety. We welcome everyone to sign up as a member (You don't have to be in medicine to join!!!) and to get involved in our projects and events we run throughout the year.
We work closely with charitable organisations to improve health and medical access in the community and abroad. We facilitate and encourage philanthropic activities by students.
