Pre-Clinical Coordinator #

Fiona Thoi 2nd Year

I am a passionate human with a big voice and even bigger goals.

Building on Sachini’s work, I aim to:
• Increase liaison between all pre-clinical reps; ed reps & international reps included!
• Collaborate with H&W officers to regularly promote mental health/student support within uni & hospitals
• Create a monthly pre-clin events calendar (involving all societies) to post in year groups, so you know exactly what’s on
• Increase pre-clin event attendance
• Involve YOU during planning inter-year debating, pubcrawl and end-of-semester pre-clin parties

Having been year rep twice, I believe I have the experience and capability to be your 2019 pre-clinical coordinator!

Tessa Pahl 2nd Year

My experience with the AMSS stems from mostly from enthusiastic (understatement) attendance at events both academic and social and I would love to give back through the role of pre-clinical coordinator. Going into third year I feel that I have a good understanding of what makes our events and would uphold the values of Spiritus, Traditio and live for the Gaudium – aka have plans a spectacular Pub-crawl!

All jokes aside, I am always up for a chat and want to make sure that any pre-clin issues or ideas are well represented at committee meetings

Junior AMSA Representative #

Oliver Marshall 1st Year

Hey guys, I'm Oliver Marshall, and I would love the opportunity to be the Junior AMSA REP for 2019. In 2018 I was first year representative, and believe that I was engaged with changes to policy and Team Rep, an important part of the role, as well as other events regarding AMSA, but am looking for a more substantial role for 2019. I may or may not have given myself iron deficiency in AMSA's Vampire cup and would love to help give everyone an epic time at convention in Hobart.

I am keen to bring my enthusiasm and creative ideas to this role to hopefully continue the legacy that Flo has created this year.
This year I attended my first convention (and got my fair share of conventionitis) and I would love to give back to the AMSS and AMSA by assisting with next year's convention in Hobart to make it the best one yet.
Furthermore, I would love to continue to increase our ranking in Vampire Cup without any hypovolemic shock.

IT Officer #

Sean Stobie 1st Year

Hello there, I’m nominating for 2019 IT Officer to achieve what previous office holders have also achieved: a working website, non-crashing gateways, and successfully processed merch payments. I hope to have strong communication between all relevant members of the AMSS committee to ensure the website is ‘UpToDate’ and has Best Maximal JPEGs (BMJ). With a committed and focused attitude to problem solving, issues arising with the AMSS website would be researched and handled as necessary, thus maintaining the integrity of the website. Finally, I am partially Russian, making me the best candidate to prevent any hacking attempts.

Multimedia Officer #

Alexandra Walls 2nd Year

Canva.com is already my best friend and that is the main reason why I would make a great inaugural Multimedia Officer. I currently manage social media pages when I’m avoiding study and would love to add working as AMSS Multimedia Officer to my ever-growing list of procrastination activities.

My work in social media has involved editing photos, creating graphics/promotional content and making boring documents like privacy policies look a little more exciting.

As Multimedia Officer, I will work closely with the VPC and committees to make informative, creative and more importantly, aesthetically pleasing content for the AMSS!

Henry Lock 1st Year

I love anything to do with photos or video! I've been an event photographer, and produced promotional posters and videos. I've been involved with document creation and formatting for the Government of South Australia. I've been messing around with photos and videos since forever, and I run 2 (trash) meme pages.

As the first multimedia officer I would love to work with the VPC and other committees to contribute to formal AMSS documents as well as event promotion and LOTS of other multimedia for events. I want to decrease event photo turnaround times and create attractive and exciting promotional material.

Historian #

Jamie Budenberg 3rd Year

Who was the first AMSS member to wear RM William’s boots? Which legends would make the all-time boat racing team? What was Dr Robin Warren like as a student? Has anyone ever actually enjoyed an MSK rotation? These vital mysteries and more will be solved if I am allowed the honour and privilege of being the AMSS historian. I’ll introduce an ‘AMSS fun facts’ portion of the monthly mailout and annual pub quiz, as well as further filling the AHMS time capsule and researching deep into the archives. Continuing to digitise old editions of [stimulus] is also a priority!

Tasha Arnold 2nd Year

One fateful O-Week morning, I had the task of finding the AMSS’ barbecue’s legs. My journeys led me to the Old MedSchool to the storage under Florey where my passion for AMSS’ history started, amongst cans of Tun from MedCamps gone by, and stacks of [stimulus] waiting to be perused.

What can I offer?
• (?Drunk?) histories with AMSS legends
• Regular history updates from past [stimulus]
• AMSS trivia comp
• Fresh cabinet displays (new event, new display)
• Investigate alternative locations for the honour boards
• Integrating Historian with AMSS Calendar - quizzes about events, with prizes
• Experience (O’week, Preskeg, MedCamp, MedRevue)

Evan Garrett 6th Year

I am old.
Very old.
With 7 years with the amss I have seen many great traditions rise and fall. From 30 students standing on the ledge by frome road to competitively catch leaves - to the AMSS buying $237 of pancakes at 5am after medball in 2012.
I already collect historical tidbits and would love to do it formally publishing excerpts of our dark and mysterious past in stimulus and the AMSS page.
Vote geriatric, I was there when history happened.

Gender Officers #

Ricky Stocker-Johns and Issy Burdon 3rd Year

Aloha people Ricky and Issy here! We would love the opportunity to bring our creativity, energy and passion to the role of gender officers in 2019! As a preclin/clin duo we are approachable to students in both aspects of medlyfe. We believe gender diversity should be celebrated for the depth it brings to our society but gender itself should not be a means of defining or limiting people. As gender officers we would support the student body with this core belief in mind, taking a particular focus on events (PUB QUIZ + fun new ideas!!!) and advocacy for gender equity.

LGBTQI+ Officer #

Kaitlyn Hunt 2nd Year

Hey friends, it’s your local happy-sock fiend Kaitlyn. As a member of the queer community, my journey into medicine was a daunting one. I know that I spent a lot of first-year fearing that no one would share my love of astrology and the movie Carol #nichequeerjokes.

Quality banter aside, being queer can be a struggle, what I want to achieve is:
• A greater focus on education, advocacy and philanthropy around queer issues
• Collaboration with the gender officers on trans* and intersex issues
• Greater support for queer medical students
• More queer-friendly events (LGBTQIA+ movie nights + quizzes anyone?)

Yeahgood. GAI.

Alexandra Walls 2nd Year

As a queer-med-student, I am passionate about creating spaces where members of the alphabet that is sexual-and-gender-diversity feel safe and included.

It can be difficult for LGBTQI+ students to feel heard in a course steeped in tradition like Medicine. As LGBTQI+ Officer, I will create a platform where LQBTQI+ AMSS members feel understood and appreciated.

Queer or not, as doctors we will be faced with caring for the health of LQBTQI+ people. It is important that we are educated about queer-issues in clinical-practice and I will work hard to ensure that Ricky’s advocacy efforts in this area continue in 2019.

We’d like boost our society’s involvement with the Mary Magdalene Centre and work on ways that we can reach out to young people and provide a framework for volunteering that transgresses our medical society.

• Grow AMSS Action page to highlight achievements of our members and advertise philanthropic opportunities

Here's what's up: we will continue advocating for the needs of medkids (especially to the faculty) and the age-old tradition of using food to bribe students into doing something good for themselves (RUOK?
