The Executive is an eight-person team that performs the day-to-day functions of the Adelaide Medical Students' Society and carries out the directions of the Committee. The Executive has a multifaceted role including performing technical background work, co-ordinating the efforts of the Committee, and acting as the public face of the AMSS. Each medical student on the Executive is elected by the members of the Society at the Annual General Meeting and serves a twelve-month term.
The Committee forms the most important body within the Adelaide Medical Students' Society. It is a diverse group comprising approximately eighty Officers from all six year levels of the undergraduate Medical Program at the University of Adelaide. The general role of the Committee is to represent the voice of the wider membership of the Society. The Committee meets regularly during the Academic Year to decide upon important directives regarding all aspects of the function of the AMSS, from things like the location of MedBall right through to our official standpoint on a specific educational matter. Decisions made at Committee meetings are then acted upon by the Executive and other Committee members in the time between meetings.
