The GKT Medical Students’ Association (MSA) has one main aim - to improve the lives of GKT’s medical students by ensuring their social, academic, and welfare needs are met at all times.

We organise a busy calendar of social events throughout the year, from the Freshers’ Fortnight in September through to the Summer Ball in June. In amongst this are many year-specific events, like the Post Electives Mixer for final years and the Halfway Dinner for third years.

We regularly attend academic meetings with the School of Medicine to ensure that the views of students are listened to. On top of this, we run a Peer Teaching scheme, in which clinical year students mentor pre-clinical students; and we host a number of revision lectures and workshops throughout the year.

Our Peer Support scheme is a confidential, student-run advice service for anyone facing personal or academic problems. We also host an annual Wellbeing Week, bringing together the numerous welfare services available on campus; and a Parents scheme to help new students settle in.

If that wasn’t enough, we have a number of subcommittees - including the GKT Christmas Comedy Revue, who put on three nights of sketches and songs every November, and MSA Musical Theatre, who turn the Greenwood Lecture Theatre into Broadway every January.

If you want to keep up to date with what’s going on, you can like us on Facebook. And you don’t have to be a medic to get involved - all are welcome!
