Surviving Med Night consists of workshops conducted by second year students to help incoming first year students acclimatise to medical school at UNE.  Rather than providing academic content, senior students discuss their experiences navigating the challenges and common pitfalls of starting medical school.

The night starts off with a barbecue in the medicine courtyard and then progresses to the PBL rooms, where stations on surviving PBL, Public Health and maintaining a work-life balance are presented.
