JCUMSA is about advocating for you, throwing great events so you can get to know your peers and keeping your wellbeing in mind during medical school.
We have many great social events throughout the year with some of our main events being Med Camp, Med Ball, Med Revue & Clinical Cocktail Parties.
JCUMSA advocates for students on three levels. We work with the medical school locally to advocate about assessment, student feedback and improvements to our medical course. We work with the QLD Medical Students Council (QLDMSC) to advocate on a state level regarding changes to internships and during state elections. On a national level we work with the Australian Medical Students Association (AMSA) attending National Council and advocating on behalf of our students on national issues!
The JCUMSA GOLD membership fee is $60 for a lifetime membership that gets you cheaper event tickets, premium access to academic events and so much more! We have many affiliates in Townsville and Cairns who have discounts exclusively for out Gold members!
