What is a SIG?

SIGs are a new initiative from MedSoc that aims to cater for and address individual interests of MedSoc members by supporting smaller events organised by individual members. There are two types of SIGs:

  • Medical/Surgical Specialty SIG
  • Extra-curricular SIG

As an affiliated group of MedSoc, a SIG would operate on its own terms and organises events/activities, while receiving administrative and financial support from MedSoc.
