About Us

The James Cook University Medical Students Association (JCUMSA) was established in 2000 and is the peak representative body for medical students studying at JCU.

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!

JCUMSA promotes and supports the well-being and interests of ALL our students irrespective of differences including, but not limited to gender, race, age, sexual orientation and/or religion.

Are you strugggling to decide what to do for your elective placement? Do you have absolutely no idea what is going on, but the thought of going overseas and doing placement is highly enticing to you? How about where to go? How to get there?

All these questions and more will be answered at the JCUMSA electives info evening next Tuesday night. A healthy mix of MDOs and Elective organisations are coming up to Townsville to explain how you as a medical student can have the best elective experience possible. Discover an array of placement locations across the globe as well as financial options to fund your way there!

The night is open to any medical student from Years 1-6, however, given that the current 4th Year students must consider their 6th year electives THIS YEAR it is highly encouraged that clinical year students attend. There will be prizes to give away on the night as well as a free BBQ following the event. It is not to be missed!
