INDIVIDUALS


Events and training opportunities

If you are new to the world of ModelWHO simulations or wish to take part in more events, we offer training opportunities all year long. Our two main events, each happening once a year, are our Chapter simulations: LonWHO (London) in the fall and SheffWHO (Sheffield) in the spring. If you live outside of the UK, consider having a look at our Partner simulations. Starting from 2021 and open to all, we also run an online summer school (Academy programme) with both a delegate and chair training tracks. We also run ad-hoc training workshops for university departments and societies. If you are interested in this, please contact our Training Co-Directors Neha and Haleema at ukmodelwho@gmail.com.


Join the team

At the moment, recruitment to join our Committee and Board of Trustees are closed. All opportunities will be advertised on our website and social media platforms. However, we always welcome emails of interest so we can keep your name in mind and let you know when applications reopen. Please keep in mind that most positions require at least one experience with ModelWHO simulations, so if you are new to them, have a look at our training opportunities!



Chapters

If you live in the UK and are interested in setting up a ModelWHO simulation locally, have a read at our Chapters booklet here to learn more about the application process to become one of our Chapters and receive all the support and advice you need to organise a successful event. Once you have a few founding members in mind, reach out to our Chapters Director Ivan at ukmodelwho@gmail.com who will guide you through the next steps. Please note that in order to maintain the quality of the events and opportunities our Chapters deliver, there are a few requirements in order to validate your application. We look forward to hearing from you!

If your university is interested in setting up a UK ModelWHO Chapter, please refer to the “Chapters” section. 

 

Sponsorship


The UK Model WHO organisation is entirely run by volunteers.
