Your Alumni Association
The BSMS Alumni Association is the academic home for all Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) alumni (former students). As your lifelong link to BSMS, we provide a range of benefits and services that remain an invaluable part of your BSMS experience. We are aware of the strong bonds our student cohorts form through their shared learning and we aspire to nurture this affinity through reunions and events.
As you probably appreciate, one of the attractions of Brighton and Sussex Medical School is its progressive nature and its research-led practice. We hope to share new initiatives with you as they happen and keep you informed of latest developments within your professional home.
Opportunities to learn, experience, network and socialise can continue through your alumni association. We also support alumni through challenges they may face as their careers develop, so please let us know if you are interested in joining special interest groups. We are one of the first medical schools to pilot career profiles with our alumni up to 96 months after graduating. This helps us keep informed of the school’s strengths, the strengths of the doctors who learn here and how we can develop those clinical skills further.
Through the alumni association, alumni can access discounted membership to the university facilities at both Sussex and Brighton, have ongoing eligibility for student discounts via the NUS Extra card and obtain free professional careers guidance for life, including professional CV preparation and interview techniques.
One major new initiative is the introduction of an Alumni Advisory Board for the medical school. This is an opportunity for current students, staff and graduates to help inform alumni activity and have a say in how best we can support and serve our medical school community.
