About RUMS Education
As your VPs for Education, it is our role to ensure that your views about the course are accurately communicated to the medical school. It is also our role to ensure that the feedback from the teaching committee is communicated back to you as quickly and clearly as possible. Our role is to create a link between the staff and the students and to promote transparency in how both sides deal with the feedback.
We accomplish this by electing and working with a team of module representatives for each of the modules. As a module representative, your role would be to gather the opinions and views of your student body about your specific module and then providing feed back to the VP for Education for your year as well as the academic leads. Applications to be module representatives will open when term starts in September.
The feedback is communicated to staff in informal feedback sessions and formal meetings such as;
- The Student Staff Consultation Committees (SSCCs) – As your VPs for Education, it is our duty to chair SSCCs where we set the agenda and pose our questions and concerns to the staff and ask them to what they have done to achieve previously set goals and what they can do to achieve new goals.
- The Teaching Sub-Committees (TSCs) – These are meetings run by the academic leads where they seek the student views on the course and reasons for student levels of interactions with the medical school.
As you can see, our role is to represent you, so your opinions and views are vital to us. We look forward to hearing from you throughout this year.
