The Committee forms the most important body within the James Cook University Medical Students’ Association. It is a diverse group comprising approximately 50 Officers from all six year levels of the undergraduate Medical Program at James Cook University. The general role of the Committee is to represent the voice of the wider membership of the Society. 

The Committee meets regularly during the Academic Year to decide upon important directives regarding all aspects of the function of the JCUMSA, from things like the location of MedBall right through to our official standpoint on a specific educational matter. Decisions made at Committee meetings are then acted upon by the Executive and other Committee members in the time between meetings.

Non-Executive Committee Members 2020

The Non-Executive Committee have a range of responsibilities that extend beyond the reach of the core Executive who are often busy with administrative duties and exercise independent roles stretching from website maintenance, sporting endeavours and extra-curricular event duties that require additional support outside the JCUMSA executive. Most core Executive members have spent some time on the Non-Exec team, as it is also an important part of the JCUMSA.
