What is the Standing Committee on Medical Education?
SCOME is the Standing Committee FOR the Medical Student. Throughout your med school years, SCOME will act as your companion aiding you in every step you take forward.
SCOME is your tool – if you make use of it, you will rise to be more than just a disregarded student, but an influential future doctor! SCOME will allow you to be part of your Medical Education by giving you a voice. This is done through Class Representatives, Faculty Representatives and feedback gathering. Your suggestions will be valued and used to instil change!
The seminars and workshops we organise are aimed at filling in the gaps in your Medical Curriculum. You will learn essential skills and lessons that are not otherwise covered during the 5 years to come. For example, how to suture and tie surgical knots, and sign language lessons or Maltese lessons for foreigners.
Furthermore, look out for our MEDIK-T, a fun-packed and highly informative weekend that will allow you to make new friends and learn about Medical Education and how YOU can make a difference. You will become equipped with skills such as public speaking that will not only allow you to play a bigger role in the MMSA but also become prepared for your interviews in 5th year and as a doctor. This will be done by friendly, experienced and certified trainers.
Most importantly, we are here to help you. No matter how grand or trivial your problem may seem, we can help you to come up with the best solution possible. Don’t hesitate to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org and join our MMSA-SCOME Facebook group. Whatever you might wish to take part in, you need but sent an e-mail or message
