Part of the Scottish and Northern Irish region

Welcome to the Glasgow branch of Medsin UK! Within the national network, we are a group of dedicated, hard working, enthusiastic and energetic students all passionate about tackling health inequalities both within Glasgow and beyond.

Like most branches we work in three ways: advocacy, action and education. For this year we've got lots of plans, so watch this space!
