University of Nottingham Fresher's Orientation Camp

University of Nottingham Fresher's Orientation Camp

The camp is an important event for freshers before they travel to the UK to commence their studies. The event is a 3D2N affair. At the camp, the freshers will be divided into their respective Orientation Groups (OGs), where there will be inter and intra group activities organized to help them get to bond and get to know one another. The camp will be organized by the executive committee of UoNSS, but it is the custom for volunteers from the society to be the Orientation Group Leaders of individual groups. Freshers are usually bursting with questions on various topics, not limited to academic, financial and accommodation issues; sometimes it is impossible for the committee and volunteers to answer all of their questions. Thankfully, it has also been the tradition to openly invite all seniors for a meal with the freshers on the 2nd dinner, so that those in less populated faculties can be just as informed as their peers. The camp serves the important function of strengthening the identity of not just the society, but Singapore as a whole. Statistically, membership has increased considerably since initiation of the camp, arising from an improved retention of old members, and incorporation of new ones. The Freshers’ Orientation Camp is of unparalleled importance to freshers, and a crucial event for the continued success of our society.

1st Singapore Medical Society of Victoria Leadership Seminar

1st Singapore Medical Society of Victoria Leadership Seminar

The SMSV Leadership Seminar is a day-long event that is aimed at inspiring Singaporean medical students based in Victoria, Australia to take on roles in medical leadership. A great deal of these professionals will eventually return to Singapore at the end of their degrees and we hope that they can acquire skills and knowledge to help them to further improve Singapore's medical landscape. Doctors and medical administrators from Singapore's public and private sectors will be coming down to speak to these students and the event offers Q and A segments to address any specific concerns regarding career development or the transition back to Singapore.
