Part of the Northern region

Medsin Newcastle has been an active branch for well over a decade now. We share the same common goals with Medsin national; to tackle global and local health inequalities. We seek to educate and empower our members with regards to health issues and inequalities. Medsin Newcastle has active relationships with both Medsin affiliated activities and a wider range of different societies. Through this we hope to make ourselves truly reflective of the entire student body, representing students from all courses and backgrounds, creating a powerful voice for advocacy.
