Welcome to 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. The International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) has a dedicated organ which aims to implement an optimal learning environment for all medical students around the world the Standing Committee On Medical Education (SCOME). 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.

 

History

SCOME was one of IFMSAs first standing committees from the beginning of its foundation in 1951. It acts as a discussion forum for students interested in the different aspects of medical education in the hope of pursuing and achieving its aim. Today, SCOME works mainly on medical education capacity building. SCOME provides several platforms and methods to educate medical students worldwide on various medical education issues. Through this knowledge, it empowers them to advocate to be a part of the decision-making chain. SCOME believes in medical students as important stakeholders in creating,

 

 

 

 

developing and implementing medical education systems.

Vision

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

 

Mission

Our mission is to be the frame in which medical students worldwide 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.

This is objective is tackled by holding collaborative workshops with Sign language instructors, and until now, we have had 5+ workshops on medical sign language.

    Our main aim is to strength the communication between physicians and deaf patients by increase medical party knowledge in sign language, particularly medical students.

  • THIS TERM

    1. Medical Education conference(1st National Joint conference)

     

    Under the theme “Current situation of medical education in Sudan and a multidisciplinary approach towards promotion of medical education.”

    This conference has a central aim, to offer a cross-platform for all stakeholders in medical education to discuss the current situation of Medical Education in Sudan and recognize that promotion of medical education is not the responsibility of a specialized bodies only, but rather it should entail a multidisciplinary approach involving all sectors &stakeholders.

     

    2. WHO Simulation Model :

     

    Health is an undeniable priority, and hence it is just as crucial to educate young medical students about health systems in the world, because, they shall be the leading force in the world in the near future. This activity is thought to be 2 weeks long with a final simulation conference date, and its main objective is to train medical student recruits on the Health system implied by the WHO

     

    3. Model ministry of health (MMoH)

     

    On a similar level, a large number of Sudanese medical graduates may pursue public health or health administration so this is a new initiative we are yet to discuss with the MoH, the idea is to educate and train medical students on the way the health system in Sudan runs and the system by which the ministry of health operates/runs.

    This event would be of particular benefit as it also targets fresh graduates, and can also be accompanied by a training in health administration. The benefits of such an activity is increasing the cadre that can pursue health administration and building their capacity at a young age where they absorb best.

     

    4. Accreditation of medical education 4 (AME 4)

     

     

     

     

     

     

    It has been a sole aim in our standing committee for the past 4 years to raise awareness of medical students about the accreditation process and its requirements under various themes. This year’s theme has not yet been decided as we need to reflect on the outcomes of previous AME’s and consult expert stakeholders, but we are considering “Social Accountability in medical education” a an option. Your suggestion will be highly valued.

     

     

     

     

    5. Career advice conference (CAC 3)

     

    One of the most successful events in SCOME is the annual career advice conference which has achieved much success, This year it shall be held in October and is thought to include workshops on how to choose a career and CV writing for a more personalized/individual guidance to the attending students and fresh graduates.

     

    6. Ethics and Professionalism Conference/Workshop

     

    With the current incidences in light, the national team has reckoned the importance of training medical students as early as possible on the concepts of ethics and professionalism. It is important that we take a cumulative approach when enforcing the concept of professionalism, i.e; periodic workshops for students at various stages in their career, each time with greater detail to solidify concepts. Since we are mainly concerned with undergraduates, it is our plight to hold this as a national workshops 3 times a year with sufficient reflection on their rights as a the medical student, their rights as a doctor and most importantly the rights of the patients.
