Jesus College Medical and Veterinary Society




Jesus College Medical and Veterinary Society holds a vibrant calendar of events throughout the year, including our annual dinner, regular talks following MedVet Soc formal hall dinners, curry nights, desserts evenings, games nights, other socials, first aid courses, welfare events and much more.   Our mentoring scheme also facilitates more localised events or meetings between mentors and students from younger years to give academic, social, and welfare support to all medical and veterinary students (see our Mentors page).



The society's talks are given typically by high profile doctors and academics, and provide both medical insights as well as brilliant entertainment. Last year's talk titles included: 

Michaelmas 2016

Tuesday 4th October

Safari Supper!

GET EXCITED - this is the biggest social of the year, and many would say the highlight the medsoc calendar, in celebration of the arrival of the new fresher medics and vets on our very own safari trip along Jesus Lane.

Thursday 6th October

Matriculation Dinner Events

1) Pre-pre matric drinks:

All of the MedSoc will gather at a Jesus Lane house (details will be emailed) before the freshers, scholars and exhibitioners head to pre-matric drinks

2) Pre-matric drinks 

Freshers, scholars and exhibitioners will head to pre-matric drinks hosted by the medical fellows in Jim's staircase

3) Anti-matric

For remaining medics and vets not lucky enough to be on the way to matriculation dinner, consolation will be more than had with anti-matric celebrations - expect a menu set to rival matriculation dinner... most likely... pizza.
