Congratulations! Welcome to Monash Medical School and most importantly, welcome to the amazing MUMUS!
The Monash University Medical Undergraduates’ Society (MUMUS) is the representative body for all 2000 Monash Clayton (undergraduate) and Monash Gippsland (postgraduate) medical students. Just by enrolling in the course you are automatically a member of this prestigious society. MUMUS is your voice to the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University, as well as to the Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA). We are the go-to body for any academic or wellbeing support you require while also organising super-fun social events.
Throughout the year MUMUS hosts a huge array of not to be missed events including a fun-filled O’Week, the highly anticipated MedCamp, glamourous MedBall, Pleasant Friday Evenings (PFEs), Caduceus Sports Cup and more. Importantly, we also provide an ever-expanding range of academic resources - from revision lectures to study groups to career interest nights - and have an amazing Community & Wellbeing team (MUMUS C&W) who will guide you in perfecting the med-life balance (yes there is such a thing!).
Your year with MUMUS will begin with O’Week, packed in with exciting guest speakers and awesome opportunities to meet your cohort. Our website (mumus.org), Facebook pages (Monash Med 2017 - undergrads; Monash Med Gippsland 2016 - postgrads), and Twitter feed (@Your_MUMUS) will be your hub for all the information you need.
As a Monash Meddie you will also have the opportunity to be a part of three other great medical student groups:
- Ignite Global Health (www.ignitehealth.com.au)
- TeamMED International Health Initiative (http://teammed.wordpress.com/)
- WILDFIRE Rural Health (www.med.monash.edu.au/wildfire)
Another of these important student organisations is AMSA, the peak representative body for medical students all over Australia. AMSA connects, informs and represents Australia's 17,000 Medical Students across 20 medical schools with advocacy campaigns, events and programs, and publications. Through policy development and representation to governments, universities and relevant medical bodies, AMSA strives for the medical student's best interest. Make sure you keep an eye out for AMSA’s renowned educational, social and leadership opportunities for students. You can stay connected with AMSA by signing up at http://www.amsa.org.au/.
At this stage you will likely be overloaded with information so the best advice we can provide you with is the MUMUS Recommended Booklist for Year 1 (see attached). If you’ve seen the official booklist, don’t be alarmed by its size - you don’t need to buy them all! Our recommendations are formed from the opinions of the 2012 Year 1 cohort and will hopefully make your job a little easier.
Once again congratulations and we look forward to meeting you all at O’Week and throughout your years as a MUMUS member.
