Glasgow Evidence-based Medicine Society (GEMS) is a medical student society at the University of Glasgow.

Evidence-based medicine will play a crucial role in all of our future careers as doctors. We hope we’ll inspire some of you to follow academic career paths, contributing to the research base as well as caring for patients.

To de-mystify the world of EBM we host friendly, interactive teaching workshops, to equip students with useful skills in skepticism and critique, and our monthly Journal Club is an opportunity to put these skills into practice with practice-changing papers from the recent literature.

We are closely allied to the academic medical community in Glasgow, both formally and informally. We welcome junior doctors in the Academic Foundation Programme and trainees in the Glasgow Academic Training Environment to our events, including our National Conference.

Lastly we run a Mentorship Programme, to link medical students who fancy trying their hand at research with local academics who are keen to try supervision.
