About Team Education

Team Education, affectionately known as TeamEd, is the internal advocacy branch of the AMSS.

Who's involved?

This advocacy juggernaut consists of the AMSS Vice-President (Education), Junior Education Officer, International Officer, EdPrograms Coordinator(s), Health and Wellbeing Officer(s), Rural Representative, Research Officer, Year Level Education Representatives and the TeamEd Secretary, among other portfolios on varying years. 

What do they do?

TeamEd meets 3-5 times a year to discuss and collaborate on educational issues across the medical program.

Members of TeamEd sit on various committees within the Medical School to advocate on behalf of students and provide student feedback on topics and issues throughout the MBBS Program and its courses. Further to this, we often organise individual meetings with staff and look to advocate via email communication as required. The circle is then completed as TeamEd communicates the outcomes and staff responses back to the students.

Other functions of TeamEd include writing student submissions, developing and maintaining educational resources (the AMSS Education Resources guide, guides to electives, information to aid your involvement in research), producing and collating student surveys and running educational events and programs (click here to read more about the EdPrograms we run which include the AMSS Teaching Series, MedTransit, Peer2Peer and ClinPrac).

How can I be involved?

There are many ways to be involved in the work of TeamEd, whether you have been elected to an AMSS position or not. 

  1. Join the "Friends of TeamEd router" (see below). 
  2. There are many ongoing projects where TeamEd is working with staff to improve the medical program e.g. the Year 1-3 Lecture Review, development of student-staff co-created Year 4 Medical Home Unit objectives etc. To get involved, please contact your Year Level EdRep or the Vice-President (Education) via emailing vpe@amss.org.au.
  3. As a student and an AMSS member, TeamEd relies or your feedback to bring student issues/concerns to staff. If you have an issue or topic you'd like to discuss get in touch with your Year Level EdRep, or why not become one? Nominations are open each year to all Adelaide medical students.
