Welfare Support - Medicine can be tough! At some points of the course it can become quite overwhelming and that is understandable. At LUSUMA we have our own Agony Aunt and a MH buddies scheme that students can access for support. If you have any concerns at all you are more than welcome to contact any member of the LUSUMA committee and they will direct you to the right services for further support. You do not have to suffer alone!
Socials and Balls - With a LUSUMA membership you can get discounted tickets to socials organised by us. Our socials range from bar crawls all the way to summer and winter balls that have been organised by our Social and Ball Secretaries. Our Medic Freshers can take part in INTROweek which is a jam-packed week for them to socialise and get settled in before starting the academic year: all you have to do is get the LUSUMA membership with INTROweek included.

Charity and Volunteering - LUSUMA run various events and fundraisers for various charities throughout the year. This year we have chosen two LUSUMA charities: You Okay Doc? and Project Light Leicester. New to this year is our LUSUMA Volunteering Hub, a place on our website where students who wants to volunteer can get started. It is a great way to develop some transferable skills while doing something you are passionate about.
