We are holding our Autumn Meeting 2023 at the Vox, 22 - 24 November 2023. There is a fantastic opportunity for a select number of medical students to attend our conference covering the latest scientific research and to network with doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals delivering the best clinical practice in the care of older people around the country.

We are looking for up to 10 medical students to assist in the daily running of the event on a voluntary basis for each day of the three-day meeting. These roles will be of special interest to medical students who are considering or currently pursuing a career in Geriatric Medicine.


Interested candidates should email registrations [at] bgs [dot] org [dot] uk with their details including date(s) of availability.


The sessions run from Wednesday at 9am until Friday 4.30pm. Responsibilities will include assisting with registration, greeting and directing attendees to key points and providing microphone support during Q&A sessions in presentations. Other duties may be expected in addition to these key activities.

  • Help manage the delivery of sessions and hear the presentations.
  • Contact with current Geriatric healthcare professionals during the event.
  • Reasonable travel costs reimbursed and subsistence at the event.
