Medsin is a network of students across the UK who share a passion for global health, local issues and making a difference.
We believe in global health equity and giving students the knowledge and tools to create change.
This year at Peninsula we'll be running lots of events, providing teaching sessions (they'll also be useful with the AMK!) and we'll be hosting the Peninsula Global Health Conference again in the spring. We've also hooked up with UAEM this year, so expect lots of exciting activities from them!
