  • Nutritank@ Plymouth

    For students that want to gain a better understanding of nutrition and lifestyle medicine that is so often missing from medical school curriculums.
    Our main two aims are to:
    1. Raise medical students’ awareness of the importance of nutrition and lifestyle medicine for all stages of healthcare.
    2. Promote the need for greater nutrition education within medical school education so future doctors are equipped with sufficient knowledge to advise their patients.

    You would receive invitations to talks from national speakers and lifestyle medicine doctors; a chance to engage in social nutrition workshops and become involved with the wider Plymouth community with workshops in local primary schools.

  • Ethics and Law Society

    We aim to bring the relevance of medical ethics and law to both our daily personal and professional lives.
    Medical ethics and law are often brushed under the carpet by students in the quest to study ‘real medicine’. This is something we want to change. All our future professional decisions will be guided by ethics and law and so a good understanding is essential.
    We aim to provide events, debates, teaching and regular information on all aspects of medical ethics and law. Hoping to bring real cases from doctors and lawyers to our medical school.

    To join our society and get involved in upcoming events, please visit our Facebook page ‘Plymouth Medical Ethics & Law Society’. We look forward to seeing you there!
