UK medical students conference

Every year the Medical Students Committee (MSC) organises a conference to which student BMA members from all of the UK medical schools are invited to attend. 

The main aim of the conference is to provide a forum to discuss the current issues affecting medical students and to pass motions based on these debates. Any motions that are passed, combined with motions that are passed from previous conferences, form MSC policy. The policy passed at conference directs the MSC’s work for the coming year. 

 

2019 conference

Our 2019 conference will be taking place on Friday 12 - Saturday 13 April 2019 at BMA House.

Each medical school has been allocated a number of conference places, which are open to any medical student member and allocated using a fair, open and transparent process.

Submitting motions

The deadline for submitting motions for this year’s conference is 9am on 15 January 2019. When preparing motions, it is a good idea to consult the policy guide to avoid duplication and to be able to build successfully on existing policy. 

For MSC conference, we recommend that motions are original, debatable and actionable.
