UQMS is the peak body for representation and advocacy for medical students, working with the Faculty of Medicine and other external organisations for the benefit of its members. Apart from this, the UQMS aims to provide social outlets, leadership opportunities, and academic support for UQ medical students. Moreover, UQMS members are able to enjoy many other benefits, including event and merchandise discounts, educational offers and study aids, eligibility to apply for positions and vote at elections.
