MBChB Student Wellbeing
Welcome to the webpages for the Undergraduate Medical School (UMS) Student Support Team. We hope that you will all have an interesting, fulfilling, enjoyable and successful time at medical school. We do realise however that at times things can be difficult and that at these times you may need extra support.
Medical students can often feel there are barriers to accessing support. They may imagine that it will be seen as a sign of weakness or not coping. However it is important that you come for support when you need it. Our ethos is based around our expectations that some students will struggle, we expect it, and we aim to have the support services to help.
These webpages are a guide to the support services available to you at the UMS, we hope you find them useful. Please contact the UMS Student Support team with any queries you have. Ed Harris, Student Support Administrator will be pleased to deal with your queries and can refer you to the appropriate support. Please contact us preferably by e-mail or telephone on 0141 330 7488.

Head of Student Support, UMS
