Whitby is Downing’s Medical and Veterinary Medical Society, in which incoming MVST students are automatically enrolled.

We hold various talks and social evenings throughout the year, including our freshers’ cocktails, which are a great excuse to come and meet older students and supervisors before term starts in full swing.

We also have regular clinical conundrums at which students can approach a presented clinical problem using their knowledge gained to date.

The year ends with a bang as we have our handover dinner and garden party in Easter term: both of which are fun events for students and supervisors, and allow undergrads to catch up with clinical students they may not see frequently throughout the year.
