OTAGO UNIVERSITY MEDICAL STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION
WHAT we do
We are here to support all Otago medical students with a students helping students approach. Our emergency hardship fund provides support for students who need financial support.
OUMSA advocates on behalf of medical students at a local and national level. In collaboration with NZMSA we managed to lift the 7EFTS student loan cap and continue to work on submissions on further changes to student loan policy.
Our education reps work with the University of Otago to provide input on curriculum changes and assessments.
OUMSA runs many social events throughout the year, including Med O-Week, the annual Med Ball and social sports teams.
Membership is open to all University of Otago Medical students.
At $200 for your entire five years at Otago Medical School, an OUMSA subscription is definitely value for money!
