Medical students invited to represent their peers

Medical students are being given the opportunity to represent their peers as nominations open for the British Medical Association (BMA) medical students committee elections.

Every year, the BMA holds elections for one medical student representative and one deputy from each medical school.

Students can stand for either position and choose their preference if elected to both.

“The medical students committee takes on crucial issues, such as widening participation, foundation programme oversubscription, tuition fees and the emergence of private medical schools”, said BMA medical student committee co-chair Harrison Carter.

“This is an opportunity not to be passed by and those medical students who stand for election can make a real difference locally and nationally.”

Online applications for students from all UK medical schools to stand as either representatives or deputies opened on 10 April and will run until 30 April.

More information is available on the BMA website
