The Nepean Medical Student Society - NMSS
The Nepean Medical Students Society is an active society that is committed to the educational and social advancement of the students of Nepean Clinical School. This comes at a time of exciting change which includes the opening of the new Nepean Education Centre Building. The new building contains plenty of space for lectures, tutorials and student recreation. This will certainly act to augment the exceptional standards attained by Nepean Clinical School.

As in previous years we are committed to ensuring the continued development of Nepean Clinical School. We have a number of goals that we would like to achieve for 2013/14:
1) Establishment of peer-based education programs
2) Liasing with clinical staff on behalf of students
3) Facilitating relations with students based at other University of Sydney clinical schools
4) Development and maintenance of an area for student recreation
5) Organisation of social events for members of the NMSS
There are a number of services and activities that NMSS has planned for its members in 2013/14;
- Student Rounds;
Currently scheduled on Mondays from 12-1pm, Student Rounds are a chance for students to present to their peers a range of topics of interest. These range from case presentations to areas of special interest/expertise by particular students. These provide not only an educational experience, but a chance for students to gain confidence in presenting to their peers. We encourage the attendance, not only of students but any clinical staff that would like to attend.
- Stage 3 Assisted Teaching
Stage 3 students are particularly enthusiastic in becoming involved with the education process of Stage 1 and Stage 2 students. We believe we are in a position to effectively facilitate the consolidation of teaching that is provided by our exceedingly competent clinical staff. This also acts to reinforce concepts for Stage 3 students. This has already taken place in regards to involvement with Stage 1 Masterclass and OSCE activities with further opportunities being planned throughout the year.
- Nepean Annual Dinner
The NMSS has made it an objective that the graduating year has dinner funded by the society, allowing students the opportunity to celebrate their achievements of the previous 4 years of hard work
- Nepean vs Westmead Medical Trivia
Nepean and Westmead Clinical schools have shared a friendly competitive streak ever since Nepean became its own clinical school. The NMSS aims to organise the first Nepean vs. Westmead Medical Trivia to determine who is THE best clinical school of the west.
- Maintenance of new student common room
We are committed to ensuring our new facilities are maintained with basic necessities such as milk, tea and coffee. The common room also now has the size and capability of
hosting social functions at lunch times. Foosball and a pool table also allows students a chance for relaxation between classes or at the end of a clinical day.
- Other Social Events
We are also very keen to encourage good relations between the various years at the Clinical School. We aim to achieve this by hosting various social events throughout the year.
