Medical Students Committee elections 2018

MSC 2018, Medical students committee, 2018


Every year the BMA holds elections at all UK medical schools to elect BMA student representatives and deputies.

These representatives make up the BMA medical students committee and attend quarterly meetings at BMA House in London.

As part of the committee you will:

  • Be the voice of our future doctors
  • Lobby for positive change in student finance, welfare and education
  • Represent students' views from all over the UK

A BMA student representative and deputy will be elected at each medical school by their fellow BMA student members; at split campus medical schools, such as Nottingham and Derby, and Hull and York, a second deputy rep is also elected.

Deputy BMA student representatives may be asked to occasionally deputise for the BMA student representative at MSC meetings.

Each elected student member serves a one-year term running from September, and current elected student members are welcome to stand again if they are still medical students.



Voting has now opened for the role of deputy representative to the committee for Birmingham medical school.
