Midweek, midday; it’s always been a sleepy time for the medical school, but no more! This weekly event organised by the Sports Reps is a chance to unwind after morning lectures/ wake yourself up for afternoon work with a social run in University parks. 
We aim to accommodate runners of all abilities, from those going for a blue, to those running for the very first time. With this in mind, there are multiple routes available and there will always be someone to run with the last person, so don’t worry about being left behind- you won’t be!

Body Positive Life Drawing

Workshop run by Becky and Harri from the Anti Diet Riot Club (http://antidietriotclub.co.uk), who model themselves and provide all materials. Anyone who wants to give modelling a go at the end is very welcome to (unclothed or not, it's up to you!)

The class will be an hour and a half and use a variety of techniques including drawing, painting and collage. You'll also be encouraged to think about your attitude towards your own body before and after you draw, through self reflection and sharing.

If you want to sign up or have any more questions, please drop me a message. We're limiting numbers to around 20 to create a safe and relaxed environment, so please let me know if your availability on the day changes!

It'll be free for members of MedSoc and if there's space then non-members will be able to pay a fiver to come along.

Information evening: Moscow Summer School in Surgery 2019

Thinking of pursuing surgery? Want the chance to study medicine in other countries? Fancy brushing up on your Russian? Then come along to our information evening to find out more about this summer's surgery work experience school taking place at Sechenov University, Moscow, as part of Oxford MedSoc's partnership with UK-Russia Young Medics Association, and how you can apply!

Following the hugely successful UK-Russia Summer School held last June, we are running a 2-week programme for 18 undergraduate UK medics this summer in urology, colorectal, cardiothoracic, and trauma/head & neck surgery. Come down to Oriel College at 5:30pm on HT2 Wednesday (23rd Jan) to meet our Sechenov colleagues who will be running the summer school, as well as MedSoc members who have previously taken part in exchanges, to learn more about the application process, as well as fees and available funding.

If you’re on the fence, check out the video from last year’s summer school, with commentary from our ex-Arts Rep Ruby Lawrence, to see what it's all about! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWj_sKb9Jcw

MedSoc Varsity

Cheap stash, sports, friends and fun, plus a chance to shoe the tabs! What's there not to like?

MedSoc is providing a coach to take us to Cambridge (departing from Oxford at 09:30). Once we arrive, we'll challenge Shamebridge across several sports, with the aim to get as many Oxonians playing in every event (and to thoroughly trounce the light blues). Then we'll all head out for a group dinner after which those who fancy carrying the early word of victory can head back on the X5 bus, and those who want to see a tab do a shoe can stay for the Varsity Crewdate.
