The MedSoc Magazine

The Black Bag has been the Medical Student Magazine since 1937. Published twice every year, we are the voice of both students and alumni.

Initially designed by the Faculty of Medicine as a scholastic publication, the Black Bag was taken over by students in the 1970s and replaced with a slightly less-polished perspective on the raucous life of medical students.

Today, our articles range from the informative to the satirical, providing a platform for both thought-provoking discussion and comical musings. We look to reflect on the wide variety of Galenicals sub-societies (sports, music, drama) as well as to evaluate (and lampoon) the current state of the Bristol Medical School and the world of medicine.

The Black Bag are always looking for contributors. If you are interested in writing for us or providing material, please email: [email protected]
