Welcome to Manchester Medical School from us at team Pacemaker. We’re the oldest, best and only magazine written by students at MMS. We’re heading full steam ahead into our second year in print, following on from a very successful inaugural year; we’re looking forward to an even more fruitful year – hopefully, with your input. We’ve grown from a thin broadsheet to a more substantial and streamlined glossy, that we are really looking forward to launching in the new academic year.

We have revolutionised the Pacemaker brand in collaboration with graphic designers. This has spearheaded a new layout for the magazine, moving from A3 broadsheet to A4 glossy magazine with streamlined print design and interface. Furthermore, we are consolidating the number of issues to four, so that we can book-end each academic semester, and also increasing the length of each magazine that we publish to each of the five core teaching bases.

Instead of publishing under a specific and fairly prescriptive medical theme, as per last year, we have decided to unify each issue under a more metaphorical theme. The theme for the first issue is LIFE. Watch this space for details of future of issues. You can contact us on pacemaker@manmedsoc.com, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook.

Lots of love from the Pacemaker team.
