What is the BMA?
The BMA (British Medical Association) represents doctors and medical students both locally and nationally in its role as a trade union. They give employment advice and work closely with other bodies for their members' interests, as well as offering ethical guidance, a 24/7 counselling service and much, much more! The Medical Students' Committee of the BMA represents YOU in lobbying over course content, student finance, job application processes and lots more. You may also hear about the BMA in the news as it also acts as a professional body, providing advice on how to best look after the health of the nation and representing the needs of patients.
At Sheffield Medical School, we specifically aim to target local issues affecting medical students on placement, elective as well as any difficulties faced during the course. There will also be various opportunities throughout the year to get involved in activities which are aim to better our medical school experience. Remember the BMA is for YOU and by being a proactive member we could change things for the better!
