National Working Groups
National Working Groups are teams that work on specific areas of Medsin to deliver projects that enact tangible change within Medsin, and in the wider world. There are opportunities for students of all subjects, universities and backgrounds to get involved. No background knowledge is required! NWGs are a shared learning experience, which aim to capture the enthusiasm, skills and knowledge of individuals from across the country.
There are two types of working groups. Operational NWGs work to make the network function effectively and have as great an impact as we can. Topic-Specific NWGs focus on various areas of global health, advocating on specific issues.
The groups are organised online with discussions taking place via Google Groups and Skype calls - don't worry if you've never used these before, you'll soon be up to speed. There are often in-person meetings at conferences and GAs, though these are very much optional.
