Sponsorship for a meeting/talk

If you are a MWF student member and are interested in organising a talk at your medical school you are invited to approach Central Office for some sponsorship towards the running costs. In return MWF asks that you distribute some leaflets at your event and don't forget you're always welcome to approach us for suggested speakers. We have many prominent, successful members from all different specialities who are happy to come and share their experience!

NB: We need at least a month's notice of your talk so we can take your request for funding to the Treasurer.

Student Workshops at MWF National Meetings

We always try to include a workshop that will be useful to
