QUB GP Society

Calling all GPs! Why not come along and inspire the next generation of GPs?

QUB GP Society would love volunteer guest speakers, podcast guests and volunteers for mock OSCE events throughout the academic year.

Please fill out this short form and we will be in touch https://forms.gle/Uy2RWfskN2pzNNBi8 

For further information, please email gp-soc@qub.ac.uk 

The Society launched their own Podcast in 2021, ‘Common Conditions in General Practice’. These short, bitesize, revision-style podcasts are “for Medical Students, by Medical Students”. Different members of the Committee have covered topics such as Hypertension, Asthma and Chronic Kidney Disease. The Podcast has been a much-appreciated resource by students at QUB and far beyond, attracting over 7,500 unique streams.   

The Society’s work was recognised when they won the ‘Innovative Online Activities’ Award at the SU Awards in 2021.

Crucial to the growth of our Society is continued relationship building with external organisations – for example, the Royal College of General Practitioners, the British Medical Association and GP Federations. The All-Island Undergraduate GP Medical Group has offered additional opportunities for cross-border collaboration with other institutions. 

QUB GP Society would like to thank the GP Team at Queen’s, RCGP Northern Ireland, BMA Northern Ireland, and all those who have worked along with us for their ongoing help and support. Your enthusiasm, encouragement, and desire to help the next generation in turn allows us to best support our members and ensure we can build a strong General Practice workforce in Northern Ireland moving into the future.

 

 

What We Do

QUB GP Society is a vibrant and enthusiastic group of Undergraduate Medical Students at Queen’s University, Belfast. Our aims are two-fold - firstly, to encourage General Practice as a career amongst Medical Students at QUB and beyond, and secondly, to support the academic and educational needs of Medical Students during their time at University. In recent times, thankfully we have been able to embrace the virtual world and create innovative solutions to help us continue to achieve both aims.
