Supporting Women In Medicine
The University of Queensland’s equality for women in medicine interest group.
Additionally, SWIM loves giving back to the community – we have charity bake sales, regularly cook dinner at the Ronald McDonald House and take part in the Mother’s Day Classic run. Proceeds from some our events also go towards local and international charities. In 2018, SWIM raised over $2000 for charity, including over $1000 for the Joyce Wilding Shelter for Indigenous Women.
Amongst all the stress, crazy and fun of med school, it is also important to take care of yourself and stay healthy. So SWIM provides weekly yoga sessions, group running and other fun fitness activities to de-stress with.
We believe that all students have a role in supporting women in medicine. So come join us, learn heaps, have fun and make a difference!
