Firstly, congratulations and welcome to the amazing Monash medical course – and most importantly, welcome to MUMUS!
MUMUS is the student society that represents the 2000 med students enrolled at Monash Clayton (undergraduate) and Monash Gippsland (graduate). You’re automatically a member just by being a Monash meddie.
MUMUS will be your voice to the med faculty and to AMSA (Aus Medical Students Association) throughout your degree as well as your source of social events, academic support and wellbeing endeavours.
Throughout the year MUMUS hosts a huge range of social events including an exciting O-Week, our much anticipated MedBall, Pleasant Friday Evening (PFEs), MedCamp, sports days and community events.
We also provide a wide range of academic supports - from revision lectures to study groups to career nights– as well as having an amazing community & wellbeing team who will host events to help you deal with stress and perfect the art of the med-life balance.
Your year with MUMUS kicks off during O-Week, and you can find all the details on our website (www.mumus.org) and our facebook pages: Monash Med 2016 (undergrads) and Monash Med Gippsland 2015 (grads)
As a Monash Meddie you’re lucky enough to also have 3 other great student groups as well as MUMUS:
WILDFIRE (www.med.monash.edu.au/wildfire), our Rural Health club,
Ignite (www.ignitehealth.org.au), our Global Health club, and
Team:MED, a new international health initiative which provides opportunities to volunteer overseas.
We don’t want to overwhelm you with information, so we’ve decided we’d attach the most useful advice we could: Recommended Textbooks
If you’ve already seen your booklist, you were probably overwhelmed by the size of the list. But don’t worry – you don’t need to buy them all! This little document from MUMUS summarises the feedback from the 2011 first years and will hopefully make your job a little easier.
