YMS makes regular charitable donations. Our beneficiaries include undergraduate medical students at the Hull and York Medical School and junior doctors doing research projects in the region.
Each President also nominates three charities, related to healthcare, for the Society’s support.
List and links to charities of the year
One local, one national and one international charity are nominated each year.
Those nominated in 2020-21 are listed here.
Medical students’ training is enriched by participating in healthcare overseas. Our bursaries enable students to plan electives in far-flung places. The meeting when they present their experiences is a highlight of the Society’s year.
Founders Postgraduate Prize
Trainee doctors compete each year for the Founder’s Prize, awarded for research conducted in the Yorkshire and Humber Region. Five projects are selected for presentation to the Society, adding prestige to the CV of the winner – and the runners-up.
