Friends of MSF National Conference

Please note: This event is now full, but we are operating a waiting list. If you would like to join the list please fill in your details below and we will contact you if a place becomes available.

This year’s Friends of MSF National Conference will take place on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 March 2017.

This is our flagship annual student event, where representatives from all of our student supporter groups across the UK and Ireland come together to learn more about the work of MSF and key issues in humanitarianism and global health.

They will network with other groups, meet MSF staff, share ideas and have fun. Plus, there is an essential debrief and social afterwards at a nearby pub!

For the first time ever this event will take place over two days with our exciting ‘Life in the Field’ simulation day on the second day.

This event is open to official Friends of MSF student supporter groups only. We expect all groups to be represented.

Day one

9:00am to 6:00pm, followed by drink at a nearby pub.

A series of inspiring lectures and workshops

  • An opportunity for each society to present their successes
  • Networking with other groups
  • Insight into MSF’s latest projects and campaigns
  • A chance to meet MSF staff

Detail on the agenda to follow soon.

Day two


Our ‘Life in the Field’ Simulation Day

  • You will visit a recreated MSF ‘field mission’ where you will be faced with a series of exciting scenarios/dilemmas to respond to and patients to treat.
  • An exclusive taster of what it’s like to work for us.
  • The workshops will be taken by incredible MSF field staff with decades of experience between them.

Please note: we expect delegates to attend both days.
