Liverpool waterfront on a blue-sky day

There has been so much to Feel Good about in our School’s February!  

It was wonderful to see the impact on patients, that our own Emily Kelly’s contribution to World Cancer Day is having, with her innovative idea for a new approach to treatment at Clatterbridge. For our university students, the BME Medics Society has again brought impact through their Culture Ball, a chance to share, learn and celebrate the diverse cultures represented at our School. 

The Wilderness Medicine Society’s trauma talk was a great success this month. The event focused on some remarkable trauma-related stories and the specific valuable skills needed for an impactful career in trauma medicine.

The School has also been on tour recently at key conferences, through Tara and Tharun’s work, and closer to home, LivResCon9 has provided a taste of the opportunities to make a difference as a medic through taking such work further, with a career in clinical science and research. 

But the group who should be going on tour (if there were not the odd exam to take) are our Artefacts Society, whose stand-out performance of Beauty and the Beast was truly fabulous! A brilliant reflection of the talent, energy, determination, and teamwork of Liverpool medical students, that is why I can feel very good in February, and every other month, about being part of the School in Liverpool.
