MUMUS

10 Jul

On behalf of all Monash Medical Students, MUMUS would like to congratulate the 2014 AMSA Executive Bid Team from Victoria who were successfully elected to run the Australian Medical Students' Association (AMSA) in 2014. The team were running against another team from New South Wales in a hotly fought contest held at the Second AMSA Council for 2013 on the Gold Coast.

Led by Year 4C student Jessica Dean as President Elect, the Victorian team, which featured nine Monash students, were able to eloquently articulate their exciting ideas and initiatives for AMSA in 2014 and impress the 20 medical student societies who make up the voting AMSA Council. The campaign was based around three pillars - sustainability and capacity-building; evolution, not revolution; and effective advocacy.

The nine Monash students elected (out of a team of fifteen) were:

President Jessica Dean (Year 4C)

Vice-President (External) Kunal Luthra (Year 4C)

Engagement & Promotions Officer Sidd Padmanabhan (Year 3B)

Events Coordinator Fiona Stenning (Year 4C)

Global Health Officer Timothy Martin (Intermitted - likely Class of 2015)

Community & Wellbeing Officer Karen Freilich (Year 3B)

Publications Jennifer Tang (Year 4C)

Sponsorship Andrew Silagy (BMedSc - Class of 2014) & Danielle Panaccio (Year 4C)

MUMUS would like to acknowledge the incredible efforts of these members to achieve the highest roles in medical student representation in Australia. We wish them all the best in 2014.
