The WMSC considers all matters affecting the interests of medical students in Wales and acts on their behalf.
We do this by informing, liaising and where appropriate collaborating with the Welsh Assembly Government, Cardiff and Swansea medical schools, local health boards and the Wales Deanery.
The committee also works closely with the BMA Welsh council and the UK Medical Students Committee (MSC).
Standards of education
Members of the committee continue to seek improvement in standards of education and administration in both Cardiff and Swansea Universities and support students during the ongoing changes to the curriculum and following the introduction of the four-year course.
We lobbied for improvements in the standard of accommodation for students on GP placement. These have been published for Cardiff students and we are pressing for similar standards for Swansea.
Shape of Training (SHoT)
We have contributed to the BMA-wide work on the SHoT reviews, particularly in respect of the proposal to move the point of registration to graduation instead of at the completion of F1.
Immediate life support (ILS)
We lobbied for the introduction of an accredited ILS course at all medical schools in the UK, following the withdrawal of such training which had previously been provided during the 5th year at Cardiff Medical School.
