We make sure changes are made to improve the academic, social and mental well-being of all out students by sitting on various Faculty Groups.

Support

Even before life gets tough, we will ensure safe guards are in place during your challenging yet rewarding years at Medical School.

Presidents' Welcome | Sung-Min Jun

Kia Ora and a huge welcome to our AUMSA whānau!

My name is Sung-Min, President of AUMSA for 2018, and it is my pleasure to congratulate you on becoming a medical student here at the University of Auckland. When I was accepted, I was overwhelmed with a sense of disbelief and sheer excitement. I think it is important that you take this moment to realise just what you have achieved. You are now embarking on a journey at medical school where the end destination will see you graduate with the title of Doctor before your name. I find studying medicine a privilege, an opportunity that I truly relish. Through your perseverance and determination, you too have been judged to be deserving and have earned this privilege. Enjoy this moment, you will never forget it!

The next five years will be a roller coaster of emotions, challenges and triumphs. You will be pushed intellectually, emotionally and professionally as you venture towards becoming a Doctor. Over the next five years you will not be alone, we (AUMSA) are here to guide you and be alongside you every step of the way. The purpose of AUMSA is to provide support, advocacy and entertainment for all medical students at the University of Auckland.

AUMSA is a non-profit organisation run by medical students for medical students, we are a family. We operate in all facets of medical school providing a vibrant and diverse social calendar intertwined with numerous educational, welfare and advocacy initiatives. We lead the FMHS on the sports field and work closely with staff on various boards and committees. AUMSA members are also members of NZMSA and we integrate with all medical students of NZ through a variety of iconic events and conferences. In recent times we have had magnanimous success in the form medical student advocacy with a number of high level organisations, including the NZ government. Caring for the best interests of our members is the crux of what we do.

The AUMSA council is an outstanding team of passionate medical students who volunteer their time and efforts to provide you with the best possible medical school experience and we can’t wait to meet to you in person!

Once again, congratulations! It is an honour to invite you into our family and I look forward to sharing an amazing 2018 with you, first up is Fresher’s 2018.
