SCOME

SCOME 

Medical Education should be a concern of every medical student as it shapes not only the quality of future doctors, but also the quality of healthcare, thus it shouldn’t be related to the knowledge we get only from the books and the references, it should be about Love, Passion, Care and Curiosity.

Yes, medical student should have passion in learning, and he should be curios not only to learn but to understand. This is what we are trying to do through SOCME; the Standing Committee on Medical Education.

Through all our joint efforts we work to create sustainable changes around the world, for ourselves as medical students, for the generations  to come and for our future patients and our communities who are in fact the final beneficiaries of our education.

Our vision

Is that medical students attain an optimal professional and personal development to reach their full potential as future doctors for better health care.

Our Mission

is to be the frame in which medical students contribute to the development of medical education. Students convene in SCOME to share and learn about medical education in order to improve it as well as benefit the most from it on a personal and professional basis.

 We support active involvement in education on an individual level encouraging students to take the initiative and responsibility for their education both curricular and extracurricular, through: seeking educational experiences and opportunities for further development, participating in extracurricular activities that simultaneously enrich them and benefit their peers or the community, collaborating with the faculties by forming and expressing informed opinions and providing appropriate feedback in an effort to elicit necessary change, as well as with national and international bodies in order to contribute to global improvement of medical education. 

We organize projects that promote and provide opportunities and tools for medical students to improve their knowledge and pursue their goals, provide information to students about relevant issues in their education, centralize students’ opinions, facilitate communication with the faculties or other institutions. We seek to promote best evidence medical education practices for efficient delivery, advocate for improvements in faculties, national medical education systems and international guidelines.
