Coffeehouse & Trivia Night 

The  Coffeehouse  and  Trivia  night  are  events  designed  for  and  run  by  UQ  medical students  for  the
wider  cohort,  with  the  aim  of  expanding  the  style  of  events  run  by  the  UQMS,  improving  the relationships  within  the  cohort  and  fostering  creative  pursuits.  They also  act  as  fundraising  events for the Ashintosh Foundation. 


The Ashintosh Foundation Coffeehouses are a series of acoustic music evenings that involve medical student musicians performing live for their peers in a relaxed, informal setting. The event is based on a  Canadian  university  social  event  in  which  acoustic  musicians  gather  in campus  coffeeshops  with their  friends  to  listen  to  each  other  play  music.  The  most  recent  Coffeehouses  have  also  included photography and illustration competitions, furthering the aim of this event to give medical students the opportunity to share in the musical and artistic talents of their colleagues.

Hot  beverages   are  served  by  baristas  within  the   medical  school  cohort  at  no   cost,  making Coffeehouse  a  unique  and  extremely  popular  event  on  the  UQMS  social  calendar. Entry  is  by donation  at  the  door,  with  Coffeehouse  now  serving  as  a  premier  fundraiser  for the  Ashintosh Foundation.

Trivia Night

A very different style to many of the other events run throughout the year, the Ashintosh Trivia night is another major feature on the social calendar and one of our rising stars, regularly selling out venues with fantastic reviews. There have even been expressions of interest for holding multiple events in 2017.  Look out for our next Trivial Night event by visiting our Ashintosh News page.

Students get together in small groups to battle out who has the best general knowledge and to raise funds for charity.
