LUSUMA Information

Leicester University Students' Union Medical Association (LUSUMA) is an association that is responsible for looking after medical students.


Being one of only six registered Associations (as opposed to student groups) with the Students' Union gives us more freedom to look after our members and support the smaller medic clubs and societies.


We take care of several aspects of life at the medical school that may affect a medic. This includes organising the medics INTROWEEK for the arrival of Freshers, looking after several academic sub-societies, being involved in the welfare of medics, planning various medic socials, including the Winter and Summer Balls.


Membership to LUSUMA is life long, with members enjoying discounts to socials, access to revision materials and sessions, making it quite beneficial to every medic.


President: Simon Cowell

Introweek 2017

*Introweek membership is included with the £70 lifelong LUSUMA membership but it can also be bought separately for £40. It gives you access to all events described below, transport from Oadby Halls to all events based in the centre of Leicester, and free bowling on Wednesday.*


One of the highlights of the first year for medics, Introweek marks the first 5 days of being a medical student at UoL. This is the memorable experience that will be spoken about for the next 5 years to come. Don't miss out on some legendary events that bring back even the oldest of alumni.


The daytime will be occupied by numerous lectures from the medical school introducing life as a student, however it is the evenings and nights that truly shine. Be sure to get your ticket to attend this unmissable week.



Sunday 17th: Meet and Greet

Welcome to Leicester and congratulations on getting into Medicine. Make your way to Beaumont Hall and meet this years committee and say hello to the other new students from all corners of the world. Get a glimpse of the sports teams and societies we have to offer. You are bound to learn something new! For your first evening we will make haste to a student favourite, the Loaded Dog, where you'll chat away late into the night in preparation for the incredible week to come! 

Monday 18th: Meet the Parents

Medical students are widely regarded as a very close-knit group. We have a family system that groups 3-5 of the 1st years with parents who are 2nd years. This night is a great way to discover what it's truly like to be a student and meet the guys and girls you'll be spending the next 5 years together. Let your medic parents show you the meaning of "work hard, play hard".


Tuesday 19th: PJ Pub Crawl/Grub Crawl

This is the night that brings back all medical students new and old. The Pub Crawl will have you exploring some of the best bars and pubs around Leicester, while our Grub Crawl will navigate all the wonders of worldly cuisine offered by the city. And you'll be doing it all in the comfort of your PJs. Older students and alumni meanwhile, will surround you in costumes ranging from creative genius to utter madness.


Wednesday 20th: Bowling

After a hectic three nights, this evening is slightly more laid back. Relive childhood as you replace your beverages with slush puppies, chat with your new friends, and knock some pins. If you're raring to continue late into the night, LETSDISKO at the O2 academy will happily accommodate you with the cheesiest tunes Leicester has to offer.


Thursday 21st: Sports Night

Whether you're Britain's next Olympic athlete or someone whose never touched a ball in their life, Sports Night is a great place to meet the teams and see all the sports we have to offer. You'll witness timeless traditions, countless games, and a surprise or two. Our Alumni makes yet another return to meet the new blood of medics sports, as well as compete in the doctors games dotted throughout the year.


Friday 22nd: Introweek Formal

To conclude the week, it's time to suit up and dine on an exquisite 3 course meal courtesy of the university. There will undoubtedly be some hilarious stories gathered throughout the week which will mark the start of many friendships to come. The finale will involve your first night of (probably) many nights at the one and only Shabang!, where you'll dance the night away to the latest hits in the hands of Leicester's finest DJs!



All this is included with your lifetime LUSUMA membership and can also be bought separately, so don't miss out on this once in a lifetime experience and join today! We can't wait to see you all in September.
