Peninsula Medsoc Sport
CALLING ALL HEALTHCARE STUDENTS WHO LOVE SPORT!
Medsoc has 4 different sports clubs that any healthcare student can join. These clubs are perfect for sporty healthcare students who want to play competitive or fun sport without it taking up too much time out of their busy week!
You could join, Men’s Football, Netball, Mixed Hockey or Women’s Football, you don’t even need a Medsoc membership.
Many of the Medsoc sports clubs enter the National Association of Medical Schools (NAMS) league which sees them compete against other medical school teams from across the country. It’s a great opportunity for those more competitive members!
