The MSC (medical students committee) annual conference is your opportunity to discuss the current issues affecting medical students and to pass motions based on these debates.

BMA members from all medical schools across the UK are invited to attend, with each medical school allocated a certain number of conference places.

Any policy passed at the conference directs the MSC’s work for the coming year.

2021 conference

The 2021 medical students conference will be taking place virtually on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 March 2021.

The medical students conference agenda committee are currently planning for the conference. This includes:

  • liaising with MSC representatives and deputy representatives regarding the submission of motions
  • confirmation of delegates attending from each medical school
  • setting the agenda for conference
  • inviting keynote speakers and planning workshops.

The MSC representative and deputy representative at each medical school will be coordinating the delegates attending from their school and the motions that their school submits to conference.
