Organised by:

Do you think vaccination should be compulsory? Do you believe in marriage equality? Are you concerned about the shortage of internship places?

Think Tank is a discussion forum for medical students to engage on issues YOU believe are important! Your ideas help shape advocacy and initiatives run by AMSA and AMSA Global Health, which can make very real change. Come along and have your say so we can best represent UNSW at AMSA Council (food will be provided)!

Topics for discussion include:
Marriage Equality
Medical Admission Criteria
Refugee Health

Here are all the policies up for discussion: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B6B3mSY9I2p6VkVjVGl6TDVzMmc&usp=sharing
