St John's College Medical Society

Who we are

St John's College Medical Society (SJC MedSoc) is the college society representing the college's medical and veterinary students across all years of study. Ranging from trips to the Royal Society of Medicine and talks from world leading academics to more informal social events like our student-favourite Mulled Wine and Mince Pies event, SJC MedSoc is here to help on academic, welfare and social fronts, making the six years here as enjoyable as possible.

Our Year in

Review 23/24

St John’s College Medical Society is proud to have successfully achieved and exceeded its aims of facilitating academic, social and welfare support and enrichment throughout the year. The pinnacle was undoubtedly the Annual Lecture and Dinner, with the talk delivered by the former CEO of NICE and president-elect of the Royal Society of Medicine, Professor Gillian Leng. This followed on beautifully from the College’s Linacre Lecture, delivered by Professor Charles Swanton, Deputy Clinical Director of The Francis Crick Institute, whom the committee had the pleasure of hosting for the annual Linacre Dinner. These events marked the culmination of a successful academic year, which included opportunities ranging from Part II subject advice to introductory sessions for the Freshers in Michaelmas term. 

 

Our welfare initiatives, such as therapy dog visits and cake decorating sessions, were highly praised and provided much-needed breaks during Week 5. Our social calendar was diverse, featuring events like a Bridgemas celebration and intercollegiate swaps with the medical societies from Emmanuel College, with whom we went bowling, and formals with those from Gonville & Caius and Downing College. Finally, we were able to extend beyond the society itself: Arnav (Co-President) and Aimée (Secretary) delivered, on behalf of the Society, a Medicine-specific summer outreach series to prospective state-school applicants, which saw approximately 150 sign-ups per talk. Building on this year's successes, the society aims to sustain its momentum and deliver bigger and better initiatives in the upcoming year
