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.
JCUMSA is a student organisation with student officials elected by the students for which it exists to serve. Everything we do is in abiding by the objectives and rules set out in our Constitution.
The time has come. We must lead the charge and Rally the North for this years Vampire Cup Blood donation competition. Help JCU take out the title and bring glory to the North by donating blood or plasma between the 6th of April to May 31st.
