C&W Events

And what a night it was!

The night was opened on the 4th of April, with MUMUS President Luigi launching the long awaited Get-A-GP Campaign 2.0 – based on the same-name campaign run by AMSA a few years ago. MUMUS C&W were super proud to be able to finally make this resource available, and hope that it will be continually updated through the years and remain a source of support for medical students!

What followed were some great talks by Headspace, A. Prof Clearihan – Associate Dean of Professionalism, Dr Mulyadi – Department of General Practice and Rosie Latimer – C&W’s Mental Health Officer. They covered a range of things – from what causes stress, why medical students are prone to it, how to recognize in ourselves and others and various coping strategies and sources of support. The small-group setting allowed a lot of audience interaction, to produce a more discussion-y feel than lecture-y, which worked great for sharing anecdotes and experiences – proof that good things come in small packages!

The evening helped open up the ongoing conversation C&W wants to encourage this year about the issues we face with mental health and wellbeing, why we face them and what we can collectively do about it!
