RUMS ISoc is a society open to all medical students to help you make the most of the new and exciting social, academic and spiritual experiences on offer at university.
For the upcoming year, our calendar is packed with both social and academic events. Academic support ranges from small group tutorials throughout the year to personal mentors for fresher’s to help you ease through the transition between A-levels and first year of medical school.
Regular socials will also provide the opportunity to better get to know students from across all years.
We are involved in several outreach programs such as our AspireMed event held every summer with the Social Mobility Foundation, helping sixth formers from low-income backgrounds with their application to medical school.
We also host a thought-provoking medical ethics conference, looking at contemporary ethical issues all doctors will face from an Islamic point of view, such as is not considered by our curriculum.
And if that already sounds like a lot, it doesn’t even include probably our biggest week of the year- Charity Week! Last year the UCL Charity Week team raised over £77,000 in one week, due in no small part to the efforts of RUMS ISoc and its members.
We’re sure that it’s going to be a busy year, and RUMS ISoc is here to help you make the most of it, in every aspect.
