Welfare

Coming to Uni is a daunting step to take. The LMSS and medical school are an important support network full of friendly, approachable and like-minded individuals.

You’re never alone if you’re struggling with something whilst you're here and we’re here to help you through it. No problem is too small, and there is no such thing as a silly question. Your Welfare & Diversity Secretary, Pooja Patel is your first port of call for anything you feel you need to talk about. She can put you in touch with university or medical school welfare services and is here to make sure you feel supported whilst you're here, her e-mail is welfare@lmssonline.co.uk . We've also got a welfare section on our website, click here to have a look at the resources and contacts.

We hope that medical school is the best five years it can be, but remember these pastoral resources exist for a reason. Throw yourself into university life, safe in the knowledge that we have your back when you need it.

dinners & BALLS

We hold lots of events throughout the year including dinners and balls. They're the perfect way to celebrate and the perfect excuse to dress up and get a gram-worthy pic. Here a sneak peak of a few things in store:

Annual Ball - the clue is in the name, the annual and biggest ball we host for everyone!
Midcourse Ball - takes place in the 2nd semester for 3rd years and marks the halfway point to becoming a Doctor!
Summer Ball - the last ball of the year, celebrating the end of another fabulous year.
Graduation Ball - just for our 5th years just before they start work as newly minted Doctors.
Charity Dinners - 2 charity dinners each November aimed at raising money for brilliant courses and open to all years!

performing arts

Established in 1962, Artefacts is the University of Liverpool Medical School’s Performing Arts Society. It is a separate society to the LMSS but we've been the best of friends for quite some time now.

Whether it’s drama, dance, choir, band or set design you are interested in, they're looking for talented people to join their family and help them prepare for the annual Variety Show, Carol Concert and the highly-anticipated musical. It is a fun and social way to meet medics from all year groups and in a different type of theatre…
Artefacts brings everyone together to let off some steam, from the barns of Footloose to the cellblocks of Chicago their sold-out shows are often the highlight of the medical school calendar attended by students and staff alike. With numerous socials throughout the year, you won’t regret swapping your sterile gloves for jazz hands and adding another highlight to your university experience.
