The Chair's Welcome

CAWC Logo.jpg

The Curriculum and Welfare Committee, more commonly known as CAWC is an independent, student led committee which aims to represent the views of MBChB students here at the University of Birmingham. At the heart of CAWC is student representation and the committee strives to bring about constructive improvements in the MBChB programme through your feedback in order for YOU to make the most out of your education here at Birmingham. The committee consists of key staff members along with year student representatives that are elected by the respective year groups, who then feedback to the college in various committee meetings held around the year.

Aside from curriculum improvements, CAWC also deals with student welfare through organising various sessions including the Feel Bright campaign sessions, which promotes good mental health and well-being among medical students. The Feel Bright campaign was set up 5 years ago and is the first of its kind in a UK medical school to be recognised by the General Medical Council.

CAWC also have an involvement with almost every committee within the college as well as feeding into the larger university-wide student representation system. In this regard, the chair acts as MBChB Programme Rep and meets frequently with representatives from the Guild of Students.

Feel free to come by for a chat or email us at for any queries or contact the relevant rep as shown on the Committee page.
