The Whitby Society covers vets and medics across your whole time at Downing.

It provides welfare, social and academic support over the year through various resources and events including our Freshers' Initiation, welfare evenings, Part II Evening, swaps and other typical Cambridge socials as well as our annual dinner at the start of Easter.

Whitby aims to facilitate interaction across all the Vetmeds of Downing, giving everyone some much needed R&R during term while also providing some handy medical bits along the way.
