Medsin exists to facilitate students of any discipline making a difference in the fight for global health equity. Medsin is a charity run by students with the vision of a ‘fair and just world in which equity in health is a reality for all’. The network is comprised of students from over 30 branches across the UK which work through education, campaigning and community projects to improve the health of our communities at home and around the world. Medsin empowers students to be the change we want to see in the world – educating ourselves about issues affecting the health of people worldwide is the first and most important step.

The term ‘Global Health’ encompasses a multitude of aspects of health awareness and promotion, disease prevalence and health and social inequalities.

Medsin Dundee aims to fill the gap of Global Health that there is not scope for in most undergraduate curriculum. This year we are planning to branch out: forming more partnerships with local voluntary organisations providing further opportunities for students to get involved in the community, as well as creating an annual lecture series of guest speakers on relevant and thought-provoking subjects. We aim to continue to expand our activities across Dundee university to form a growing network of global health enthusiasts.
