    1. An overview of the Medical Society

What is the Cambridge University Medical Society?

    Cambridge University Medical Society (CUMedSoc) was founded in 1784 and represents students of the Cambridge University Medical School. It was established to liaise with the University and the town’s people on behalf of the student body but has since grown. Aside from

    having a strong say in the way course is organised and run, CUMedsoc plays an important part for other aspects of student life for the students, from arranging discounts for books at local retailers to running workshops to help new students. In addition we provide book grants and subject related travel grants to support students.

    The society also holds many events through out the year which include: Sports tournaments, Garden parties, Bi-termly socials, Annual dinners and Guest Speakers. Our aim is to continue, and increase, the provision of support academically, and organisation socially for our members.

How big is the Cambridge University Medical Society?

    There are just under 900 undergraduate Medical students and a further 400 at clinical school in Cambridge, most of who are life members of the society. However, the society is not just restricted to medics, with as of last year membership being extended to those studying biological sciences at the university, of whom there are around 250 students per year. The Cambridge University Medical Society is the second biggest society in Cambridge, the first being the student Union itself.

Why sponsor a Medical Society?

    The very size of the society and the direct interaction that it has with its members means that is an ideal opportunity to reach large numbers of potential consumers. Though we represent a body of Medical students, the events we run are attended by many non-medics, the dinners, the socials, the sports events and even the talks attract a large number of students from other disciplines. In addition some of the students decide to leave the study of medicine after they have obtained their BA after their third year, and are thus also eligible for recruitment. And with Cambridge consistently ranked as one of the highest performing medical schools in the country, we provide you with direct access to future world leaders in various medical (and non-medical) specialities.

    www.medsoc.org.uk 2. Sponsorship Opportunities

The events listed below are only the largest events that have become fixtures in the CUMedSoc

    calendar. We also hold smaller events throughout the year such as guest speakers, meeting with

    the course organizers, student information lectures, sports tournaments and formals, which are

    regularly promoted by our weekly emails.

Freshers Fair (?200)

    Date: October 2009

    Venue: Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre

    Attendees: The entire first year at Cambridge ~4000 people.

This is the Societies fair which is attended by all of the first years of the university, from every

    college and of every subject. We have a stall in the fair and it is the first opportunity for new

    members to sign up. Usually leaflets, flyers and freebies; pens, notepads, medical dictionaries etc,

    which have been given to us by our sponsors, are handed out and we can discuss with the

    students the advantages of joining the society.

    We also put up banners and posters from our sponsors at the stall and are happy to advertise or

    promote any particulars on their behalf.

Ents (?250)

    Date: Twice a term

    Attendees: 400+

The ents are popular throughout the university with members and non-members attending.

    Nearly 400 tickets are sold for the night before hand, with the remaining 500 tickets being sold

    on the door, this is due to nightclub policy and not due to lack of interest. We arrange for cheap

    entry, drink promotions and our own DJ. In return for sponsorship for this event, we include our

    sponsors’ logo on the advertising posters and on the wrist band tickets that we sell. With such a

    large number of people attending from all years and many different subjects, this really is a great

    sponsorship opportunity for the society and our sponsors.

Clinical School Forum (?100)

    Date: Michaelmas 2009

    Venue: BMS

    Attendees: 300

This is the opportunity for third year medical students to hear from the various different clinical

    schools that they can apply to. It is an important event in helping third years decide where to

    apply. It is a brilliant opportunity for recruitment for non-medical companies as some of the third

    years may be looking to leave medicine for employment. We can advertise your logos and

    contact information.

     rdwww.medsoc.org.uk 3 Year Dinner (?100)

    Date: Unconfirmed

    Attendees: 200

The third year dinner is an annual black tie dinner for the graduating third year medical students,

    before they continue onto clinical schools, research or even jobs. We can offer to advertise your

    business on the posters, e-mails and tickets of the events.

Garden party (?150)

    Date: Easter 2009

    Venue: St Johns Fellows garden, Cambridge.

    Attendees: 200

This is the final event of the society’s calendar. After 6 weeks of a stressful exam term, guests

    are able to relax and enjoy the company of other medical students where they can enjoy the

    summer in Cambridge’s beautiful gardens. The event is open to all students, and usually the turn

    out of non-medics is just as large as medics. Tickets are in large demand and as a result we are rdlook to find a new venue that will allow more people to attend. As with the 3 year dinner, we

    can offer to advertise your business on posters, tickets and in e-mails.

    Hoodies (?200)

We are in the process of finalizing a design for a new CUMedSoc hoodie, which will be bought

    by a large number of our members, in past years we have sold around 200. We can incorporate

    your logo onto our hoodie, which will provide you with a powerful means of advertising as there

    will be, in effect, a large number of walking advertisements. The reach of your advertising will

    extend to all members of Cambridge University (of which there were 17 000 recorded members

    in January 2008) as they see your logo around colleges, in lectures and even on the streets.

Murmur

This is the Society Magazine. We publish two editions, one in Michealmas term and the second

    in Lent term. We print around 800 copies which are given to our members free of charge. It

    contains useful information for students. Regarding the course, exams, Club nights and Gigs in

    the city, restaurant promotions etc. We also advertise various businesses within the magazine,

    and would be happy to promote your business or recruitment. There are a number of advertising

    opportunities which prices varying accordingly, please feel free to ask for further details.

    CU MedSoc Ball Date: Michaelmas 2009?

    Attendees: 250+

This year, for the first time in over a decade, MedSoc hopes to bring ball a Medics’ Ball. Other

    societies within the university (for example, LawSoc) enjoy a very successful Law Ball, and we

    medics feel we also deserve such a privilege, given that without a doubt we comprise the single

    most hard working student population within the university. We estimate that such a ball would

    www.medsoc.org.uk cost in the region of ?15000, and would be delighted with any financial assistance you could

    provide. The event would be open to medics and non-medics alike and with your name on

    tickets, posters, banners and possibly even alongside the ball itself, you would be provided with a

    widespread audience.

    3. Sponsorship benefits

Graduating members of CUMedSoc, be they sixth years or third years are looking for jobs .

    CUMedSoc provides a brilliant opportunity for recruitment and publicity to a very large student

    body. Furthermore, many of our event-goers are not even members so publicity reaches beyond

    the membership base of the society.

We endeavour to help advertise your business and the recruitment of graduates and interns via

    the following ways:

1. CUMedSoc Email Updates

During term time, the committee sends email updates to all our members [current and life

    members]. They mainly serve to inform members of all upcoming events and any other relevant

    issues. CUMedSoc utilises these emails to promote sponsors by acknowledgment of sponsorship

    in every update.

2. Exclusive Email Updates

We can offer to e-mail the society exclusively about your business and recruitment, this will

    ensure that members are made aware of the standing of your business

    3. Individual Pigeon-holing/Invites for Events

We will be pigeon holing when companies are hosting events in Cambridge for a specific target

    audience. The “pigeon hole” is one of the primary modes of communication to students via flyers,

    or letters. For example, if there is a recruitment event targeted at penultimate year students, then

    we ask you to provide us with the necessary flyers/invites for the members, and we will send

    these to the target audience based on our membership database. This will help to increase

    awareness about the event.

    4. Publicity at CUMedsoc events

All major sponsors will be publicised at every MedSoc event by putting up banners/posters that

    you supply. Additionally, at the Freshers’ fair, flyers/freebies [such as pens and post-its which carry the sponsor’s logo]/booklets from sponsors will be given out to every member present.

    This allows for direct contact with the large number of people that attend the fair.

    5. Publicity through our publications

Depending on the level of sponsorship, we also allow sponsors to put up advertisements in our

    publications; Murmur. As explained above we place advertising for businesses but we also

    acknowledge all major sponsors in every issue, allowing for them to put up advertisements in it.

    President: Vignesh Vetrivel, Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, CB2 1TA Email: president@medsoc.org.uk Vice-President: Dana Khoriati Emmanuel College, Cambridge, CB2 3AP Email: vice@medsoc.org.uk Sponsorship Officer: Leo Scott, St. John’s College, Cambridge, CB2 1TP Email: sponsorship@medsoc.org.uk

    www.medsoc.org.uk

    6. Publicity on the CUMedSoc website

The Society has an official website at www.medsoc.org.uk. We acknowledge all sponsors on the

    website’s home page, and we will also have a poster/logo be put up on our Sponsors page. We

    receive over 700 hits per month on the website, thus your logo will be very wide-reaching.

7. Publicity on Hoodies

As mentioned above, CUMedSoc hoodies will provide you with a powerful means of advertising.

    Your company’s logo will be on display to thousands of people, members, non-members and

    even those not part of the university.

    8. Assistance in holding recruitment drives/talks

Should you decide to hold a recruitment drive or talk in Cambridge, we will be able to provide

    assistance and support, such as the booking of seminar rooms. We will also help to publicise the

    event to our mailing list and to the other societies that we currently have links with.
