Medical Protection Society
MPS has been a staunch supporter of MedSoc for many years and their continued support of the UCD Medical Society have made a huge difference.
MPS offers professional protection, also known as indemnity, which can help you with any medicolegal issues that may arise from your time studying and throughout your whole career. This can be anything from patient complaints to claims and referrals to the Irish Medical Council.
Joining is completely free and includes:
Up to 25% off a wide range of medical textbooks including Oxford University Press and Wisepress.
Advice on ethical issues and whistleblowing when on placement and shadowing clinicians.
Guidance on patient safety and consent.
Access to our confidential counselling service to support you through a stressful case or claim.
A medicolegal advice line including out of hours emergency support 24/7.
Help responding to and resolving patient complaints.
Access to a dedicated expert legal team which may include clinical negligence solicitors, medicolegal consultants, and professional claims managers.
In recent years, MPS have sponsored Med Ball, Med Cup and the Student Medical Summit, to name a few. However, their continued support allows us to host even more events every year for our members.
All first-year students joining MPS will receive a free Oxford Clinical Examinations e-book and final years will receive the Oxford Acute Medicine e-book when joining or renewing.
