Medical Students for Global Awareness
MSGA is a nationwide network of medical students who are passionate about addressing health inequities on a local and global scale. We build awareness, take action and advocate for a healthy, sustainable and equal world.
We frequently invite guest speakers to share their experience and stories with students. Their anecdotes often empower students. The Q&A session that follows allow students to engage with them and build on their own understanding on a particular topic. This year, we are also running fortnightly discussion groups where students get together to share their insight and learn about a particular topic of interest (usually related to a current event). The aim of discussion groups is to allow students to develop and discuss the problem at hand. We also run pre-departure trainings to educate clinical medical students who will be travelling overseas for their elective and selective on culture and safety.
