These are the current societies under the Medical Cluster
The Lincoln Anatomical society is a society set up for Lincoln students who are interested in or studying anatomy. Our aim for the society is to encourage interprofessional education of anatomy. We plan to hold networking events where the members from different courses in the society can get to know each other. We also have plans to invite guest speakers who are renown in their fields to show different applications of anatomy within the healthcare system. We are excited to set this society up for people who are intrigued by anatomy.
Do you want to do surgery? Did you know that GPs can do that too! As a student led society supported by the Royal College of General Practitioners, we aspire to deliver events focusing on the versatility of a career in General Practice.

Anyone interested about a career in General Practice is welcome to join! See you at our events!
Medical Ethics Society
Medical ethics is a fundamental aspect of all specialties and areas of Medicine. It's contentious, debatable, and can leave you feeling ambivalent. But this is what makes it interesting – learning the thought process behind decisions in patient care and global health.
As a committee, we have been working to set up this society, reaching out and gathering a huge plethora of interactive guest speakers. We have some really exciting plans lined up for the coming year and would really appreciate your support to build on the foundations we've already laid!
Médecins Sans Frontières (or Medicine Without Borders) is an international, medical humanitarian organisation that aim to save people’s lives in conflict zones, natural disasters, and epidemics. As part of this society, we aim to help spread awareness about their work and the people they help, as well as hosting a variety of charity events to help raise funds and support their lifesaving work.
In addition, we hope to host a plethora of talks, guest speakers, and clinical skills sessions surrounding tropical medicine in hopes of expanding your knowledge and interest. Everyone is welcome to join!! This is a new society and provides the perfect opportunity for you to give your input and help to shape this society

Street Medics Society
On average, it takes 7 minutes for an ambulance to arrive. Those same 7 minutes can be used to save someone's life. As a society, we aim to provide individuals with the knowledge to make informed decisions and the confidence to save lives in public. This will be delivered through various guest talks from healthcare and law enforcement backgrounds, a variety of first aid sessions, and teaching sessions, where you will go to local communities e.g., schools, and teach basic life support.
We also intend to provide basic self-defence training in emergency situations. Lastly, we aim to help you connect with other like-minded people and students from different professions. Street medics work under the philosophy of “Treat the human and the body”, and so we hope to provide you with the confidence to go out and save lives on the street. We are looking forward to seeing you soon at our first social event!
WAMS (Widening Access to
It is a surprising fact that ‘80% of Doctors come from 20% of schools…’ We should then ask if Doctors are therefore representative of their local communities and the society they serve.
As group of young, diverse medical students, we believe that medicine should be more representative of the population as a whole and the medical profession should be reflecting social mobility. The Lincoln Widening Access to Medical School Society’s key priority and aim is to help aspiring students from diverse backgrounds, who have an interest in medicine as a career.
Our main focus will primarily be on local schools within the local community where we will be guests, visiting and delivering workshops to all age groups. Ultimately our goal is to reach students across the whole county of Lincolnshire. We will also be organising a number of events at the University of Lincoln which can be accessed by all.
