That's right, responding to surveys pays off! Thank again to all those who completed the AMC and AMSS Assessment Surveys last year. I can now announce the recipients of the survey prizes (including cash and textbook prizes) - Preshema Prem, Rosie Massolino, Nitya Sukheja, Xinlun Lim and Rebekah Clark! If you are not one of these lucky individuals, don't despair, the 2018 AMC Survey will be released this Wednesday!
Following on from the Q&A session with the Deans on May 14, we are now able to make available the meeting notes (see link below). In addition, notes from a subsequent meeting with the Dean and MBBS Program Coordinator of the Medical School and AMSS VP(E) are included which answered further questions which were submitted but not answered during the Q&A session. Please feel free to contact Malcolm Borg, the AMSS VP(E), if you have any questions regarding the information in these meeting notes.
We have not only rescheduled the Dean Q&A, but now we have two Deans coming to our next committee meeting! Prof Symonds, Dean of Medical School, and Prof Burt, Dean of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, will both be in attendance at the upcoming AMSS meeting on14th May at 5.30pm in the Joe Verco Lecture Theatre. Come along to ask about the direction of the program (#MD) and clairfy currently changing aspects of curriculum and assessment. We greatly encourage attendance at this meeting, along with the submission of questions in advance, to make the most out of this opportunity. The submission of questions in advance will permit the Deans to do background checks with other staff as required and additionally, permits you to ask questions anonymously if you so wish. Please submit questions by 9pm Wednesday May to Malcolm Borg (VPE) via the linked google spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spread...

The Dean of Medicine, Prof Symonds, is unfortunately no longer able to attend the upcoming committee meeting on 26/03 for the aforementioned Q&A session. We are currently organising for him to attend a later committee meeting. All questions that have been forwarded onto me have been kept and will still be provided to the Dean for discussion at the Q&A, when it occurs.
