Welcome to the MMSC Homepage
The McMaster Medical Student Council (MMSC) is an elected group of students who can make decisions on behalf of the medical student body as provided for and defined within the boundaries of the constitution. In this role, the MMSC organizes academic and non-academic events to complement the undergraduate medical program. The MMSC is devoted to serving the needs of medical students by engaging in responsible decision making that reflects the highest standards of conduct.
The vision of the MMSC is to create an optimal learning environment for the students within the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine. Through the formation of interest groups, promotion of volunteer opportunities, and funding of research events, the MMSC strives to provide students the opportunity to explore the many aspects of medicine in order to enhance their overall learning experience. We are continually searching for ways to improve the student experience and the medical program as a whole.
