president - paige hall

Hello there! I’m Paige and I am so excited to be your LMSS President 2020/21!
Our society is the oldest and the largest medical student’s society in the UK, it’s 146 years old and even predates the University of Liverpool itself! We are passionate about being one of the most active societies in the University and love to host a huge variety of events that you’re all very welcome to attend!
As President I am the spokesperson of the society and work with the other Officers (Ellie & Charlie) to ensure that the needs of all the medical students at Liverpool are met - whether that’s academic, social or pastoral. I am returning from a year of intercalating in Manchester and cannot wait to dive into all the exciting events we have planned for you this year! My personal goal this year is to show every medical student of Liverpool that the LMSS is an accepting and inclusive organisation that has its students at the heart of every decision it makes.

Please feel free to message me on facebook or drop an email to president@lmssonline.co. uk if you have any questions, queries or qualms!

Annual Dinner Secretary - Joe Pearman

Hi guys, my name is Joe and I am in 4thyear and I will be your Annual Dinner Rep for this year. I am very excited about organizing what is without a doubt one of the highlights of the year. Annual Dinner is a chance to sit down and have an evening full of great food and great entertainment whilst raising lots of money for charity. There will be a 3-course dinner followed by lots of entertainment, including our very own MC, a hilarious guest speaker and lots of competitive games (including the traditional rodeo bull). Towards the end of the evening, the Charity Bar Crawl will join us, and we will dance the evening away. Two weeks prior to the Annual Dinner is the Annual Bar Crawl where we will once again get dressed up and sample some of the finest watering holes Liverpool has to offer. It promises to be another incredible fortnight where lots of money is raised for charity.

Any questions about either Annual Dinner or Annual Bar Crawl, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Interesting Fact: I have broken 17 different bones.

Hi everyone! I’m Maddie Boyers, the new LMSS History and Alumni Rep for 2020/21. I am going into my final year at Liverpool after just finishing my intercalation doing a Masters in International Public Health at LSTM. I have previously been an LMSS Charity Rep in 2016/17 and House Sec in 2017/18. I have always been a very active member of the LMSS, loving Grand Round, Annual Ball and Charity Dinner as well as being a member of the Hockey Club and Artefacts over my last 5 years. I’m so excited to be part of committee for my last year and have the chance to organise Alumni Dinner in 2021. I am always so proud of LMSS events and our enthusiasm and efforts for making events bigger and better continues each year. It will be my role to share the successes of the society with the Alumni and keep them as involved as possible and inviting them to our events. With the first female president in 30 years, this is a big year for LMSS and I know it’ll be a great one, I can’t wait to write about our highlights, and hopefully hear of some of the alumni’s memories of the society too.

Sports Secretary - Tom Huxley

Hi, my name is Tom Huxley. I am currently intercalating (between Y3 and Y4) and I am your LMSS Sports Secretary for 2020/21!
With a pretty disappointing summer for sport, I am sure that a lot of you are all very excited to get out and get involved with sports teams! Sport is a great way to let off steam, especially given the busy schedule you will have as a medical student. It is a great way to meet new people, including other freshers who may have similar interests to yourself and also students in the older years, who can give you support academically or with general student life advice! There is also a great social side to Medic’s Sport too, with many team-specific socials throughout the year, and not forgetting the Medics vs Dentists vs Vets Sports Day (which we won last year) followed by the LMSS AU night!

Coming to uni, I knew that I wanted to play sport, but I didn’t know whether to play for the Medic’s team or the Uni team, and I realise this is something that many of you will be thinking about too. From my (arguably biased) experience, I would strongly suggest joining a Medic’s team. They are designed to allow for the busy schedule of medical students. They also support everyone, from those who have never played the sport before to those who have played at high levels previously. Teams play in local leagues, campus leagues and in the fiercely competitive NAMS competitions against other medical schools, which has brought us success in recent years.

The Medic’s Sports Societies that we have include Rugby (Men’s and Women’s), Football (Men’s and Women’s), Hockey (Mixed), Netball (Women’s), Squash (Mixed), Tennis (Mixed), Cricket (Men’s).

Should you be interested in trying out a new sport or continuing an interest, please get in touch with me so I can help you out! Send yourselves in and don’t be shy!
