GLADD has over one hundred student members who form a significant proportion of our community. We hold social events all year round as well as our annual conference which takes place in London in November with a separate stream for students and then a chance in the afternoon to meet other members of GLADD and make some new contacts.
What can Student GLADD offer you?
Being a student member is a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet other LGBT medics and dentists.. Events are very informal and range from casual drinks socials to marching and partying in Gay Prides all over England. Events are not exclusive to London either, there are hives of activity all over the country including Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham.
The highlight of the student calendar has to be the annual student conference which features a variety of speakers discussing topical LGBT related medical and dental issues followed by an evening social gathering.
Discounts & Subsidies
Student membership also offers you a range of advantages only available to those still studying for their medical or dental degree. Membership is available at the discounted price of just ten pounds a year
Not only can you benefit from invitation to all the qualified member events, tickets are heavily subsidised offering extremely cheap rates for those on a budget. Travel subsidies are also available to those who may be commuting from outside of event host cities and can be obtained by contacting our treasurer.
Student members can also benefit from our dedicated mentoring scheme run by our mentoring rep Anna Taylor. Upon joining you may request a GLADD mentor, a qualified member who will be matched to you based on your own specified career plans with a view to providing support and answering questions surrounding your particular field of interest. Don't worry if you're not sure what you want to speciliase in yet! All our mentors are happy to help out whatever way they can.
