Welcome Night: THE BEST GAMES NIGHT with your fellow students also interested in medicine! Hint: this cohort will be with you for the next 7 years (or at least the rest of your undergraduate degree) so strap in to make some lifelong friendships – Meet your next bestie, lab partner, or study buddy! P.S. free food and drinks!!

Meet us in Room T203 of Hawken Engineering Building to begin the best years of your life!

Launch Party: Wild 👏 Wild 👏 West. What more is left to say? If you’re 18+, whip on a pair of cowboy boots and party the night away at Birdees, Fortitude Valley. Unwind after your first week of uni at our joint party with UQ’s Public Health Association and Karaoke Club. 

With tickets at $5 (buy HERE) once you’re a member of any of our societies (UQPMS, PHA-UQ, UQKC), there’s no excuse to bail! Invite all your friends to come along for a night to remember. If you’re not a member, just sign up and come join us!

Yeehaw 🤠

Premed Pals: Want advice from upper years who were in your EXACT position not long ago? Want to meet new friends? Look no further! Our mentoring program will pair you with an enthusiastic, dedicated mentor who is more than happy to help you out or go for dinner with your mentor group! Watch out on our FB to sign up!! 

Want to become a mentor and pass on your wisdom and knowledge (best food on campus, things you wish you did) to a keen group of mentees? Well mentor sign ups are open now! Check out our recent Facebook posts! 

Premed Touch: Seeking all individuals of ANY skill level to join UQPMS MedTouch where our teams compete in the UQ Medical Society’s Social Touch Competition every Sunday afternoon. You can stay fit AND a great opportunity to make friends. Most of our teams are made up of beginners so you don’t be afraid to join if you have never played touch before. Check out our UQPMS Facebook page for updates!

Semester 2

Amazing Race: The most hectic fun-filled three hours of your life! Solve riddles to figure out where stations are located, and complete the activity to gain points. Past activities include a jellybean race, blind-folded Jenga and the Mintie wrapper challenge.

Premedical Ball: Come dance the night away with Ariel, Sebastian, Flounder, King Triton, and even Poseidon at our annual ball, our theme – Atlantis. October 3rd – add it to your calendar because you’re invited!

Beneath the starry night lies the glamorous auditorium of City Hall with its dazzling lights and glitzy walls. Hold your breath as we delve into the lost city, the eighth ancient wonder of the world. 

Dress in your most resplendent attire to be worthy of meeting the rulers of the sea (psst! We managed to source Aquaman’s trident)

Boozy, bougie, bewitching. A brilliant night awaits you…
