The WMSC covers all matters of importance to medical students in Wales and acts on their behalf. We do this by informing, liaising and, where appropriate, collaborating with the Welsh Government, Cardiff and Swansea medical schools, local health boards and Health Education and Improvement Wales.
The committee also works closely with the BMA Welsh council and the UK MSC.
Raise awareness of student mental health issues and assess the scope of the support offered by medical schools in Wales.
Promote access to medicine regardless of background and monitor differential attainment.
We lobbied for improvements in the standard of accommodation for students on placements and continue to monitor these standards.
Improve communication with students in order to increase awareness of the BMA and encourage engagement with WMSC.
Monitor the implementation of the MLA (Medical Licensing Assessment) and medical schools’ own assessment procedures.
