What AUMSA does for you

AUMSA has been around for 30 years. A lot of things have changed but we still rely on these three core principles.

Entertainment

From Freshers to Graduation Dinner, we will make our time at Auckland Medical School one to remember.

Advocacy

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 | Cameron Tuckey

Kia ora koutou and welcome to UoA Medical School!

What a time to be alive!

My name is Cameron Tuckey, President of AUMSA for 2019 and it is my absolute pleasure to welcome you into the Auckland Medical School family. Today is a day of celebration. It is a celebration

not only of the countless hours you’ve put in to get to this point, but also of the path that lays ahead. One of the most exciting parts about this journey, is that it’s not one you are travelling alone! In addition to the wider medical school whānau, you will soon meet your classmates, many of whom will become some of your closest friends. The Class of 2023!

This email represents the start of a new chapter in your life. It represents the start of a journey which despite its challenges will see you grow both academically and emotionally. The exciting thing is that entry into the MBChB programme means entry into a programme that really cares about you! From here on out you’ll be part of a programme doing everything it can to support, mould and craft you into a medical professional that will one day be of benefit to the people of Aotearoa.

I’m writing this letter as the sunlight streams in through a window of the glorious Phils

on library- a place that will soon start to occupy both your dreams and your nightmares. However, while you’re busy studying, AUMSA will be working tirelessly to make sure your time in medical school is as good as it can be! The student association is run by medical students for medical students with the goal to provide support, advocacy and entertainment for all medical students at the University of Auckland. Whether this is through the dense social calendar or the numerous tutorials and welfare events it puts on, AUMSA will be there every step of the way. None of this would be possible without the hard-working AUMSA council working behind the scenes. Luckily, 2019 boasts one of the most spectacular, talented and passionate councils yet!

If that wasn’t enough, AUMSA members automatically become members of NZMSA (New Zealand Medical Student Association). NZMSA gives a voice to all medical students on a national stage, with the influence to produce legislative change!

Another huge congratulations! I can’t wait to see what 2019 holds! First step… Freshers!
