Blue Week 2015March 30, 2015
In 2015, The University of Newcastle Medical Society (UNMS) will host Blue Week, an important nationwide initiative focused on improving the awareness and support for mental health issues
What are we doing it for?
- To remove the stigma around mental health, to improve the accessibility of resources
- To create a safe place for conversation to happen.
- We want to provide an event that is open to all, and most importantly, informative.
Between 18th – 25th of May, UNMS will be hosting a series of events tailored for Medical Students, and addressing the growing issue of Medical Student mental health.

Introductus 2015January 31, 2015
UNMS’ first publication of 2015 is none other than INTRODUCTUS: our “official freshers’ guide” for the innocent B. Med newbies. It has all the tips and tricks you’ll need to survive Med School: We’re here to help you out. The INTRODUCTUS is intended to educate, entertain and otherwise enlighten our first years! So please sit back and read up: it’s probably the most enjoyable thing you’ll put before your eyes this year!
Hard Copies will be distributed to First Years during orientation, and an online copy is available here:
First Incision 2015January 25, 2015
February 25th – Time: 6:30pm
Location – Newcastle City Town Hall
First Incision is the first and foremost in the University of Newcastle Medical Society’s social events. Bring your nicest dress or your cleanest suit, for this cocktail event is formal.
First Incision represents the chance to socialise with JMP students of your own year, but also to meet the other years. Because of this, and the fact that it is the first major UNMS event, make it an excellent opportunity to meet, greet, mingle and generally introduce yourself to everyone in your course.
Once you’ve finished eating fancy canapés and making good impressions on your cohort and other years, there will also be an afterparty at the Argyle house, a nearby club.
Tickets are available here: http://www.trybooking.com/
