The Geriatrics and Elderly Medicine Society (GEMS) is a student-led society that holds numerous talks by guest speaker specialist consultants about issues facing elderly care and a career in the field, which are always accompanied by cake and refreshments!
Our regular debates and research opportunities provide further opportunities to delve into the field, while our mock OSCE stations and tutorials will run throughout the year to tackle tricky concepts in geriatrics medicine.
GEMS has also been home of the exciting Project Stars volunteering programme over recent years. Project Stars involves medical students mentoring groups of sixth form students as they volunteer together in a local care home. This scheme aims to make an impact in the community and tackle the issue of loneliness and isolation in elderly care homes, as well as give volunteers the opportunity to develop their communication skills and make new friends.
If you are looking for a friendly group of students who want to make a change and learn more about issues facing elderly healthcare, then GEMS is perfect for you!
