Otago University Medical Students’ Association

Who are we: 

All of the medical students that have passed through Te kura hauora o Ōtākou have begun their medical school journey in Dunedin.

 The Otago University Medical Students’ Association (OUMSA) – the official association of medical students from the School of Medicine, at the University of Otago, New Zealand – is an organisation run for medical students by medical students. At a personal level, OUMSA provides support for students, considering ourselves a family. Formally, we organise activities and events with the aim to further ourselves not only as medical students but as people within our communities and Aotearoa as a whole.

What Dunedin means to us:

Dunedin has meant many things for all of us – a home, a place of learning, a springboard to new adventures, and a chance to engage with each other and celebrate the rich tapestry of cultures that make up our student cohort, and indeed, the communities we intend to serve as doctors.
