University Student Psychiatry Club
Durham University Student Psychiatry Club
What is it?
The Durham University Student Psychiatry Club was set up to stimulate people to think about mental health more. It aims to raise awareness of psychiatry as a career option, and an important issue in student life. It is a club set up and run by medical students in association with and supported by staff from Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys Trust.
So what do we do?
We aim to cover a wide range of issues, by inviting speakers from different areas of psychiatry to talk to us about their specialist areas. The talks are informal and interactive, and food is provided every time.
When does it happen?
They are usually scheduled on a monthly basis, and have historically been on a Thursday evening in the Holliday Building at Queen’s Campus, Stockton. The food arrives at about 7.30pm and the talk then starts at 8pm lasting around an hour.
Who can come?
The club is open to all students, medical or not, and the only requirement is an interest in psychiatry, or a willingness to learn a little more!
Sceduled events and talks will be advertised and new members are always welcome.
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting! Please contact email@example.com for further information.
