Your information page for freshers activities
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the events advertised are mainly held over zoom.
As a committee, we are aware that this may be disappointing, as freshers fortnight is a way to socialise and meet new people within the BMBS course. However, I can assure you that we have worked hard to provide a freshers that complies with COVID-19 guidelines. We have also organised events which will allow you to meet most of your peers.
We strongly encourage that you partake in these events, as freshers can be a lonely experience for some. Meeting new people and making new friends, even via zoom, can help to form a support network that will last for the 5 years of your time at Plymouth Peninsula Medical School. We hope you enjoy your first 2 weeks at Medical School!
For ANY in person event, a Microsoft Form will be made available for you to fill in during the event. This will act as a track and trace form.
Any information obtained will be deleted 2 weeks after the event was held.
If you, or people you have been in contact with, are found to have symptoms/tested positive for COVID-19, you will be asked to self isolate, in compliance with government guidelines.
Thus, it is imperative that you take the time to complete this form. The use of masks and anti-bacterial hand wash will be encouraged.
