 - About Us -

Welcome to Galenicals, the University of Bristol Medical Students' Society. Representing 1500+ students, we are proud to be the largest student-elected society at the University! We are run by an executive committee of medical students elected each year by our fellow medical students.


We offer a diverse range of opportunities for medical students to get involved in, ranging from our big social events to smaller talks and gatherings as well as overseeing and supporting our sub-societies, which cover everything from sports teams to academic specialties.

 - Galenicals' Equality Statement -

Galenicals welcomes all medics throughout their time at the University of Bristol, including those studying on the MB ChB course, Gateway to Medicine course and intercalating medics.  

Galenicals are committed to having an inclusive and diverse society, where all of our members feel comfortable. We have a zero-tolerance stance against all forms of discrimination, and we expect the same from all of our members. We welcome and include all members equally irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.  

Galenicals are here to support our students in all areas of student life. Our Welfare Rep Network and also the many extra-curricular and academic sub-societies within Galenicals helps to fulfil this. We have a welcoming and friendly committee, who are always on hand to signpost, give advice and answer questions when needed. Several of our committee roles reflect the diversity of the students we represent and make sure that we are an equal society for all. This includes International Director, Mature Students Director, Community Outreach Director and Welfare and Equalities Director.
