The UCL Medsoc Psychiatry Society has been underway in force this year. Our first event with Speaker Professor David Nutt, which sold out all 400 tickets in just a week, went fabulously. This years second term 1 event with Dr Robin Carhart-Harris takes a further look at the potential of psychedelic compounds as a new class of psychiatric medication. In term 2 our Medsoc Monday event will explore the role of psychiatry in other specialties – with the opinion of neurosurgeons through to paediatricians to understand how mental illness affects all illness. Term 2 will also see the launch of the ever popular Buddy Scheme as well as Meet the Shrinks – where students can mingle, network with and simply pick the brains of psychiatrists of all levels and specialties. Lastly we’ll be enjoying Bright Club – where academics in mind and brain sciences will be doing stand up about their work. It’s going to be as mad as it sounds! We’ll see you there.
