MDSCx Key Information
✦ Registration & Workshops: Despite COVID-19, we are proud to continue the tradition of guaranteeing a workshop at home for every MD student. Some workshops will require your address for materials to be sent out by our Organising Team or collection at a centralised metropolitan Melbourne location should social distancing regulations change and students are willing. Some workshops may also require you to submit an agreement regarding the equipment provided. Where this is necessary, the appropriate information will appear at registration and can be viewed in the attached MDSCx Workshops and Wellness Activities document.
