About us



Welcome to the ANU Medical Students' Society website

The Australian National University Medical Students’ Society (ANUMSS) was founded in 2004. It prides itself as the peak representative and advocacy body for ANU Medical School Students across all year levels. Our goal is to “Support, Represent, Entertain” the student body. With a team of dedicated committee members elected each year by our peers, we provide ongoing academic and advocacy support for medical students.  In addition, we provide state and national representation at Australian Medical Students' Association (AMSA) events, and active participation at the ACT Australian Medical Association (AMA) council meetings.

We also work closely with the Medical Education Unit at ANU to ensure our MChD program is of the highest standards and that our graduates have equal work opportunities in the very competitive medical field.

One of the main highlights each year is the exciting social calendar organised by ANUMSS to complement students’ time at medical school. These events not only offer students a chance to de-stress, but also a relaxed environment to socialise with other year groups and establish lifelong friendships.
