Welcome to the first WAMSS ThinkTank for 2016!

ThinkTanks are an opportunity for us as medical students to look at, debate, discuss, and suggest improvements to AMSA policies coming up for vote at National Council - these policies get used to advocate to politicians, media, and other seriously important and huge organisations. It's a big deal!

We run three ThinkTanks each year, and as always, current AMSA policies will be up for discussion.

There are PebblePad points available for the MDs and pizza for all! No experience is necessary - just come along and give us a piece of your mind!

The policies up for discussion can be accessed here, please have a read of them:
