First Incision 2018
Get keen for the only way to start a year of med in Armidale. Tickets are live and are $27.00 for UNEMSA members and $37.00 for non members (you can register for membership here. There will also be an information session on how to join on the night).
First Incision is the first major event held by UNEMSA for the year, with strong representation from all year groups. The night will begin earlier for 1st years with a session held at the School of Rural Medicine, where sponsors have the opportunity to address students and provide an informative, promotional talk. Following this, attendees move outside to visit the Sponsors’ tables, where they can sample products and seek out more information. The evening then moves to Booloominbah, the historic University of New England homestead. Here, students can meet and greet Sponsors, as well as a wide variety of medical students from all year groups. Canapés and refreshments will be served throughout the night. Some nice tunes will be playing too, thanks to our resident DJs. You can view some photos from previous First Incision events here.
For everyone else, the night will kick off at Booloominbah at 7pm. This year we can promise heaps of food, heaps of drink and heaps of fun, all whilst you can take pics at our photobooth sponsored by GPSN and NERCHA.
Get around it guys, this is one event you don't want to miss out on.
