AMSA National Council
AMSA Councils represent valuable opportunities to inform and upskill medical students across the country. Held 3 times a year and each over 3 days, Council is comprised of AMSA representatives, MedSoc presidents, the Executive, representatives from the Board and importantly, anyone interested like yourself, to meet and discuss the directions of AMSA.
We primarily review, debate and pass policies which our advocacy team, give updates on the activities from the various arms of AMSA, and highlight future opportunities for involvement. We host several breakout sessions where MedSocs? can discuss common issues and troubleshoot together, while newcomers attend our upskilling workshops on advocacy, leadership and internal management. The best part about Council is meeting like-minded students and sharing our passion for all things AMSA.
This year, AMSA Council 1 and 3 will be held in sunny Queensland, with a forecast for insightful debates, fantastic people and good times. We honestly can’t wait to see you up here and you’ll definitely hear more from your university’s AMSA Rep in due time!
Council 2 will be bigger and better than ever, coined #councilvention, and will be held in the days preceding Convention 2017 in stunning Sydney.
For those already counting down the days to #sydvention, #councilvention is the perfect excuse to start the excitement early extend your stay and to meet the many faces of AMSA. Again, more to come, but be sure to mark June 30th - July 2nd on your calendar! And while your calendar is out, Council 1 Brisbane will be running 24-26th March and is shaping up to be a good one!
