Projects (6 positions)

Have a passion for using your skills to make a difference global health? If so, the MSAP Projects Subcommittee is the perfect job for you! Being a part of our 2018 subcomm will involve you supporting global initiatives such as Food for Thought, Birthing Kit Night and Medical Action Myanmar. We’re looking for charismatic, innovative and tech-savvy people to put on fundraising events, film health-education movies and establish new global ties. We’ve got exciting ideas for this upcoming year (eg. End-of-Semester Party) and can’t wait to hear yours so sign up to be a part of it all!

Electives (3-4 positions)

Every year MSAP runs the Elective Aid Program, an initiative supplying vital medical equipment to health facilities in developing countries attended by medical students on electives. By supporting the infrastructure with locally-purchased equipment, the initiative aims to improve health outcomes and contribute to sustaining local economies. As a member of the Electives Subcommittee you will have the opportunity to work with the Electives Officers to liaise with hospitals, retailers and 5th year elective students. You’ll also get to help organise MSAP’s Launch Night early next year!

Code Green (2-4 positions)

Code Green is a relatively new MSAP initiative with a primary focus on being the voice of advocacy and action against the growing threat and impact of climate change within our university. You’ll be involved in organising events and fundraisers as well as helping to oversee the sustainability of both MSAP and our university as a whole. We also aim to provide educational outlets informing on the growing impact of climate change on health in Australia. Everyone is encouraged to apply, with the hope of forming a fun and diverse team of passionate, proactive students dedicated to doing their part on both a local and broader scale.

Crossing Borders (2-4 positions)

The 2018 Crossing Borders Subcommittee will be working to organise events and advocacy to support AMSA Global Healths project Crossing Borders. This nation-wide initiative is geared towards removing barriers to healthcare for refugees, asylum seekers and undocumented migrants. We work with national medical advocacy groups such as Doctors4Justice and do medical related work with other refugee support groups (including law based group National Justice Project). We are seeking a small team of students from all walks of life who are passionate about making a difference in refugee health both with grassroots activities from the bottom up as well as with advocacy from the top down.

Publicity (3 positions)

This year we’re looking for 2 photographers to join our publicity team, as a photographer you will be assigned to photograph or video our events then select, edit and upload your photos into the photography drive. We’re also looking for 1 publicity subcom member to help design promotional material and manage the website. We’re hoping to amp up promotions with more exciting promotional campaigns so creative input from the whole team will be appreciated!

Sponsorship (1-2 positions)

The sponsorship market is a tough place! Aside from gathering sponsors for the numerous events organised by MSAP, we are currently experimenting with different sponsorship approaches. We've shifted from approaching businesses to approaching alumni and personal connections (i.e. people who would be more personally invested in seeing MSAP succeed). As such, the Sponsorship team will be in charge of establishing the MSAP Alumni Network, writing MSAP Alumni newsletter and maintaining/acquiring sponsors via email and/or phone.

Education (2 positions)

Want to meet leaders at the forefront of their fields, working to improve global health? Through helping to run the Global Health Short Course, you’ll get the opportunity to hobnob with the who’s who in global health. In education, you’ll get to contact all those incredible people that inspire you, convince them to speak at GHSC, and of course share your passion with other students.
