General description:

A project of continuing education cycle that aims to supervise the student and ensure its proper integration into the committee. More luck and opportunity to understand the world of SCOME, Associa-Med, IFMSA and training. Our goal through this project is to give birth to true leaders aware of the different issues in medical education and endowed with all the necessary abilities in soft skills and personal development. We really need SCOME SOLDIERS who are so personally and professionally trained that they will be ready to act and change.
Also the project does not stop on training sessions but it will encompass a wider and richer dimension that is the social networks through its Facebook page called SCOME Me. This to give the chance to active members outside the club and in apart from Associa-Med to know about SCOME and about the importance of our work and our actions. The goal will be to strengthen the concept of online training since the page will ensure the communication of any useful information in the form of article, intervention, and video. A recovery of the session made to the club members will be of course published as short and useful lessons.

Focus area:

It’s actually the five focus areas that we have been working on. The main goal is to make medical students conscious of the medical education issues. As a part of stakeholders, they are ready through this club to put plans and ideas to advocate and make the change.

Problem statement:

Walking around in the medical school I noticed too much ignorance and no care is given to our medical education. Our soul was since the history traped into the cage of medical studies, stress and anxiety. Too much passivity ! As a result the sense of criticism in his right way is obviously absent. on the other hand our educational system is in real need of puting hands on the way of real change. As medical students, we believe that our role is determinating and we need to put on our potential in a meaningful and efficient way for the sake of our medical school.

Target groups and beneficiaries:
