2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the Graduate Course in Medicine at Wolfson College. To celebrate, alumni, members and students of Wolfson got together for an inaugural Medics’ Talks and Lunch on Sunday 26 January, 2020.

We were delighted to hear alumni Dominic Summers, Eoin Macdonald-Nethercott and Gabriel Lambert give talks on their Wolfson journey and careers, taken them as far as Antarctica (and then back to East Anglia!), with plenty of adventures on the way. 

They and other alumni and members shared more stories with current students over lunch afterwards.

It was great to see so many of the current students interacting with former students and there seems to be great enthusiasm for forming a medical society in the future.  This would help to build links and support for students on the course to help them develop their careers.“

Wolfson Fellow Dr Jeremy Webb

With thanks to our speakers as well as alumni, members and guests for taking part in our first event of this type.  We hope it will be one of many more as we develop our programme over the year ahead, particularly in this anniversary year!

If you are a medic and an alumni of Wolfson and would like to receive news or take part in future events and activities like this, then please contact our Alumni team and update your details.
