Birmingham University Gastrointestinal Society (BUGS)

Welcome to Birmingham University Gastrointestinal Society (BUGS). This is a student-led society which hopes to encourage and inspire interest in Gastrointestinal medicine.

BUGS is for all MedSoc members, irrespective of course.

At BUGS we hope to:

  • Learn about new advances in the field of GI medicine and surgery with regards to research and medical practice.
  • Allow networking opportunities between MedSoc members and those involved in the field of gastrointestinal medicine, including GI doctors, researchers and professors.
  • Encourage more to pursue a future career in GI medicine/surgery.
  • Help students in all year groups improve their understanding of GI topics/modules.


We are planning many different exciting events throughout year:

  • OSCE practice sessions
  • Talks / workshops on GI as a career
  • Revision sessions aimed at both pre-clinical and clinical years
  • Research opportunities with leading GI consultants within the region
  • And lots more!
