FAQ

Contact the Club

  1. Who is the main contact for club related queries?

    You should contact us directly at [email protected] with any questions, queries, and qualms you may have. We'll reply to your message as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!


  2. Can you e-mail me the resources presented at the events?

    Unfortunately, we cannot e-mail these resources (ie. slides) to you.  We hope that students would make the effort to attend our events so that the effort given by our presenters are worthwhile.  Useful resources are typcially given out as hard copy or written down by attendees at the event.  If you have valid reason of why you cannot attend the event, we advise you to get a friend to come to the event and obtain the information for you.

Leadership

  1. How can I become an executive for the club?

    Club elections are held every March and any vacancy is filled in October.  Only club members are allowed to run for a position and vote for candidates.  To become a successful candidate, it is important to show up at as many club events as possible to demonstrate your interest and dedication in promoting the club.  Interested potential candidates who are newcomers are encouraged to run for the Project Coordinator position as it is crucial that club executives learn and become familiar with the process of running club events smoothly.  President and Treasurer positions typically require at least one year of executive experience with the UBC Neurology Club.

  2. Can I attend club meetings?

    Club meetings are reserved for executives only.  Due to the diverse discipline of our club executives (ie. science, pharmacy, medicine, research), club meeting times and locations typically vary each time and are based on the availability of club executives only.

Science Debate

    Scientifically speaking, since genetic material does not change very much during an animal's life, the first bird that evolved into what we would call a chicken must have first existed as an embryo inside an egg.

  2. What is the meaning of life?

    ...now you're just being difficult...
