The Jamaica Medical Students' Association, JAMSA, is a non-profit student organisation comprised of all the students at the UWI Mona campus registered in the Bachelors of Medicine and Bachelors of Surgery (M.B., B.S.) programme. The role of the elected "Executive Board" and "Council" of JAMSA is to simply represent the views of students as well as to coordinate and facilitate the Association's various activities and initiatives. President’s mission for JAMSA The mission of the Jamaica Medical Students’ Association is to offer to the Caribbean’s future physicians, a comprehensive introduction to global health issues within a setting, and of a quality, that closely mimics current world standards. Through our programming and opportunities we develop: An enhanced interface between the Faculty, University, the Nation, the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) and our members; Culturally sensitive & committed health care professionals intent on: meeting the health needs of the people of the Caribbean Community and enhancing the quality of service available to all members of the public.

JAMSA Executive structure


The International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA) is an independent, non-governmental and non-political federation of medical students' associations throughout the world. In 2007 IFMSA had 102 National Member Organizations from 100 countries on six continents and represented more than 1 million medical students worldwide! IFMSA consists of six standing committees all with their own field of work. The names are: Professional exchange Research exchange Public Health Human Rights and Peace Reproductive health including AIDS Medical Education

Mission “Our mission is to offer future physicians a comprehensive introduction to global health issues. Through our programming and opportunities, we develop culturally sensitive students of medicine, intent on influencing the trans-national inequalities that shape

the health of our planet."

Aims To be a forum for medical students throughout the world to discuss topics related to health, education and medicine; To formulate policies from such discussions and to carry out appropriate activities; To promote humanitarian ideals and medical ethics amongst medical students; To act as a mechanism for medical students' professional and scientific exchange and projects; To be a body through which cooperation and contacts with other international organizations are established; To act as a mechanism for member organizations to raise funds for projects recognized by the IFMSA. Objectives The goal of the Federation is to serve society and medical students all over the world through its member organiza-

tions by: Empowering medical students in using their knowledge and capacities for the benefit of society. Providing a forum for medical students throughout the world to discuss topics related to individual and community health, education and science and to formulate policies from such discussions.

“IFMSA is the other half of being a medical student; as well as playing our role in the improvement of medical education, IFMSA gives medical students the opportunity to go beyond the medical school and hospital and get the global health picture...keeping in mind: Think Global... Act Local.” Anas Eid, IFMSA Past President, 2007/2008. You can visit the IFMSA website on

IFMSA General Meeting 2011 Last year was IFMSA’s 60th anniversary and all the Medical Students had a grand celebration of this. The theme for the meeting was Health and the Future. We had power-packed Theme discussions on topics such as, new research and how it evolves the delivery of medical care, the increased cost of healthcare and ways to control or limit this, and how to offer World-class treatment to resource-strapped nations. As well the conference went all Green! No air condition was used, we rode bikes from the hotel to the venue, used only recycled paper and ate only non meat food and water. We, the Jamaican Delegation, have benefitted tremendously from this: we were able to literally go halfway across the Globe and we had the very rare opportunity to meet and interact with medical students from virtually every country. We also represented Jamaica very ably at International Food and Drink Night where our assortment of Wray and Nephew Overproof Rum, banana chips, tamarind balls and grater cake had persons coming for seconds and thirds. We were also afforded the opportunity to sign contracts for exchange students to come to and leave Jamaica during their elective periods. These steps are perfectly in tune with our more globalized outlook at healthcare in the modern day.


Standing Committee Profiles scoph

Packed on a few extra pounds? SCOPH it up. Interested in saving great breasts? SCOPH it up. Don’t want medical school to steal your sanity? SCOPH it up. Walk on two limbs; breathe air? You guessed it ;-). It’s time to SCOPH it up! Through education, empowerment and support, the Standing Committee on Public Health (SCOPH) promotes the achievement and preservation of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing for all. Via various exciting initiatives both on and off campus, we strive to help you, the public, make informed decisions regarding health throughout daily living. So, come on over and meet the SCOPHers. You know you want to, and we would love to have you. It’s like they say: The more, the SCOPHier. Adrain Coore, Director


If you are outspoken, opinionated, creative, committed to service and has a vested interest in the rights and well-being of others; then JAMSA’s newest and most exciting standing committe is for you! We have many interesting topics and activities to be covered this year that will keep everyone talking, participating and having fun while we aim to make an impact in our school, community and the nation as a whole. It is a rewarding feeling to be a SCORPion, where we will be “Stinging Human Rights and Peace into Society”. Join us and you too will know how it feels be apart of the SCORPion experience. Venicia Cruikshank NORP


The Standing Committee on Research Exchange aims at expanding the knowledge of the average medical student in a particular scientific area. It does so by providing them the unique opportunity to get involved in pre-clinical or clinical research both here in Jamaica and abroad. The standing committee acts as a bridge between the student and the faculty member running the research project. The student thus becomes a part of a research team and helps in the accomplishment of the project’s goals. In addition to this, ‘SCOREans’ are introduced to basic research principles such as collecting information, laboratory work, statistics and ethics. Auvarhenne Howell


One of the foremost goals of the Standing Committee on Medical Education (SCOME) is to provide a forum that can fill the gaps of traditional medical school curricula. SCOME seeks to develop skills and perspectives that medical students will need in their upcoming careers. In addition, SCOME undertakes the responsibility of creating awareness about health matters that are relevant to the surrounding local community. SCOME does not represent a body that simply discusses hypothetical ideals -- it is an organization that is driven to im-


plement strategies for action that will affect change not only in the local university setting, but also the community at large Anna-lee Clarke , Director


The aim of SCOPE is to promote international understanding and co-operation amongst medical students and all health professionals through international exchange of students. SCOPE helps to broaden the students’ understanding of medical and social conditions in different countries. There are over 78 countries worldwide where medical students can explore medical and social culture and walk away with a lifelong experience! Monique Brown, Director


The Standing Committee on Reproductive Health including HIV/ AIDS (SCORA) of the Jamaica Medical Students Association (JAMSA) is a student-run organization that promotes awareness about issues of reproductive health concern to those who need the information the most; including members of the UWI Mona campus and the wider Jamaican population. SCORA’s aim for 2012-2013 is to foster an environment where medical students can learn about prevention as a viable option in improving health outcomes related to reproductive health, through a focus on education and awareness surrounding HIV, the Human Meetings First and Third Wednesdays at 1PM. Stacey-Ann Miller , Director


The bulk of the committee’s work involves writing Policy Statement Proposals for submission to the IFMSA, March and August General Meetings, GA. The Policy Statement is a document which, if accepted by the IFMSA, represents the stance of the 1.2 million medical students globally on a particular issue. Recent Policy Statements have explored issues on: Emergency and Disaster, Global Road Safety, Mental Health and the Discrimination of Persons with Disability. They have been used by medical students to persuade their governments to improve their public health systems. Jason Knight, Director

Now a word on Smoker..

As a long-standing and honoured tradition, third year medical students of the University of the West Indies, Mona have produced the annual charity production called Smoker. This event is held in an attempt for medical students to start their careers by giving back to a country that has benefited them so tremendously. Beginning early in 2010 and culminating on September 18, 2011, the medical students of the class of 2015 have and are continuing to put their hearts and minds together to create and bring to the stage our Smoker dubbed, Scary Tails. Proceeds from the 2011 edition will be given to the Endoscopy Unit at the UHWI. Here is an exclusive look into SMOKER 2012: An eye for an eye… The prodigal son returns home to a hellhole of corruption and violence. After a senseless attack on the people he cares about, he vows revenge on a one-time-friend turned adversary. One man stands alone… But as he gets closer to the source of the corruption, the line between right and wrong gets ever more blurred, and when one man decides to take matters into his own hands things spin wildly out of control. “i fi i” is a statement of human character and proof that our choices, whether good or bad, will ultimately define our destiny.



Assessment and Examination An overview Assessment of students in the medical undergraduate programme is multimodal and will take the form of written, practical, clinical, and in some cases, oral examinations. Coursework, projects and other in course grades where appropriate and in keeping with interdisciplinary approach to teaching, your assessments will become more integrated as you proceed through the programme. GPA and the Assessment System In 2006, the faculty of Medical Sciences adopted the GPA system of assigning credits. The system adopted the Faculty for the MB,BS Programme conforms to that in use by other faculties with the following programme specific differences: Students will be assessed at the end of all courses or clerkships and must pass all core courses in order to graduate. The core courses or clerkships include those assigned credit values contributing to your GPA as well as courses categorized as pass/fail.


Grades from credit rated coursed contribute to your GPA which is used to determine the level of degree awarded. Core pass/fail courses are compulsory but do not contribute to your GPA. Satisfactory completion of credit-rated courses requires that you achieve a letter grade of C or higher. Students scoring less than C (2.0 quality points) are assigned an F and are required to repeat the failed course and/ or the assessment at the next available opportunity. Students who pass a failed course on a subsequent attempt are assigned a maximum of a C (2.0) and their GPA is recalculated using this new grade. Failed attempts (F) are, however, retained on your record.

Assessment in stage 1 Student in years 1 and 2 will normally be permitted to proceed into the subsequent year only if the credit value of failed courses in the preceding year

does not exceed a total of 9 credits. Student who proceed into subsequent years carrying failed courses will be required to register for and sit them at the next available opportunity Students who fail to pass a course after a total of three attempts will normally be required to withdraw. Students will not be permitted to proceed into Stage 2 of the programme unless and until all required Stage 1 courses have been passed. Assessment in Stage 2 Students in year 4 will normally be permitted to proceed into the 5th and final year only if the credit value of courses/clerkships failed does not exceed a total of 9 credits. Students who proceed into Year 5 carrying failed courses/clerkships will be required to register for and sit them at the next available opportunity. Students must complete and pass all courses/clerkships in stage 2 and pass all parts of the final MB,BS examination to be eligible for the award of the MB,BS DegreeAward of the MB,BS Degree Award of the MB,BS Degree requires that student pass all specified courses and all parts of the final MB, BS Examination at the end of Stage 2 The final MB, BS examination will comprise written and clinical components in each the major disciplines and will be held at eh end of the 5th year. Dependent upon the above, the Faculty of Medical Sciences has designated the following categories for the award of the MB, BS Degree.

Required & Recommended Texts


he textbooks listed below are suggestions from various students and are aimed at maximizing your potential by arming you with the necessary equipments to achieve your full potential. Note: It is not expected that students aim to purchase all books as most are available at the library and some are also available online in e-book format. The most important text for any new medical student is a medical dictionary, the two most common are Stedman’s Medical Dictionary and Dorland’s Medical Dictionary (both are available for online use). Pre-clinical (Stage 1) Gross Anatomy There are two basic reading materials necessary for anatomy: an atlas and a text. Gross Anatomy Texts Last's Anatomy by Chummy Sinnatamby – is the recommended text, some students say the earlier editions were a bit difficult to read but the most recent edition has coloured pictures and has greatly increased its appeal. Grey's Anatomy for Students by Drake et al. – Highly recommended by students. Detailed and easy to read, with tables and colour drawings. Excellent clinical correlations to put information into context. Gross Anatomy Atlases Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank Netter M.D. – Comprehensive, full colour text. Required for optimal understanding of anatomy. Colour Atlas of Anatomy by Rohen et al. – A photographic study of the human body. Good colour dissection photography. Not as comprehensive as the Netter's but definitely a worthwhile buy, especially useful for days when you’re not able to make it to the lab. Pharmacology Basic and Clinical Pharmacology by Katzung Pharmacology by Rang and Dale - The bright colours and ease of reading makes Rang and Dale the preferred book with medical students, however, acquiring both may be beneficial. Pathology Pathologic Basis of Disease by Robbins and Cotran Basic Pathology by Kumar et al – A concise form of the book above, which has basically what you need to know for pathology in stage 1 of the programme.


Histology diFiore’s Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations by Victor Eroschenko – Has excellent pictures and correlating notes. Includes an interactive atlas on CD Basic Histology by Junquiera et al. – More detailed than the diFiore’s, however, the accompanying CD is not quite as useful as the diFiore’s. The diFiore’s is enough for a good grasp of histology. Physiology Textbook of Medical Physiology by Guyton – Good book if you like to be taken slowly through a concept Review of Medical Physiology by Ganong – gives lots of detail in a few words Chemical Pathology Lecture note on Clinical Biochemistry by Smith, Beckett et al. – A good concise look at your chemical pathology topics with case scenarios at the end of each chapter.

by John Kiernan – all the detail you'll need to get by, but a little too detailed and difficult to read for some. Introduction to embryology The Developing Human, Clinically Oriented Embryology by Moore and Persaud – reading is quite long, but good pics and explanations that make the content easy to understand. Langman's Embryology by T.W. Sadler – succinct, good recap at the end of each chapter. MP, Introduction to Medical Practice and Health and Environment Read your notes and pay attention to the demonstrations. Cell biology Biochemistry Lippincott’s Illustrated Review by D.C. Champe & R.A, Harvey – succinct with almost all topics you need to know discussed Medical Microbiology and Immunology by Levinson and Jawetz, Appleton and Lange – good combination book for immunology and microbiology in conjunction with your notes from class Colour Atlas of Biochemistry by Jan Kooiman et al – tiny, short read, nice pictures.

Haematologv Essential Haematology by Hoffbrand and Petit. - The only one you'll need, however pay close attention to the lecture notes as the topics stressed (in the lectures) are the most important, not necessarily the entire book. Introduction to Molecular Medicine Biochemistry. Lippincott’s Illustrated Neuroscience (SF81) Review by D.C. Champe & R.A Harvey Any of the anatomy, physiology, phar- . macology and pathology books previously mentioned. Neuroscience (SF82) Clinical Neuroanatomy for Medical Students by Richard Snell – good for getting your bearings in neuroanatomy. BARR'S: The Human Nervous System


Pre-clinical clerkships (Junior clerkships) Introductory Clinical Texts (All you will need for 2nd year) Macleod’s Clinical Examination by Munro et al – A must have Hutchinson’s Clinical Methods by Michael Swash – A bit longer to read Internal Medicine Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine by Murray Longmore and Ian B. Wilkinson – especially important and useful for ward rounds and on clinic days Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine by Christopher Haslett and Edwin R. Chilvers – excellent book. Good coverage of signs and symptoms, management and the pathophysiology of some diseases. Surgery Surgical Recall by Lorne H. Blackbourne – especially important and useful for ward rounds and on clinic days Browse’s Introduction to Symptoms and Signs of Surgical Disease by N.L. Browse and John Black – Excellent physical examination of the surgical patient. Really good pics. Overall an excellent book Scott: An aid to Clinical Surgery by Robin C.N. Williamson and Bruce P. Waxman – Very concise, but perhaps too brief at times. No pics, just diagrams Lange: Current Surgical Diagnosis and treatment by Gerard M. Doherty   Paediatrics Nelson: Essentials of Pediatrics by R.M. Kliegman and K.J. Marcdante - Recommended texts, has very good coverage of most of the essential topics in paediatrics. Paediatrics: A Primary Care Approach – Adequate coverage of topics. Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics - Lots of nice pretty diagrams and pictures.   Community Health and Psychiatry The department provides notes which are relevant for this rotation so no textbook is needed For the clinical aspect of the programme, students are advised to visit each department (or speak to your med brother/sister) to obtain a list of required and/or recommended text.

So now that you’ve been accepted into Medical school, what are the items that you are required to have to make your transition as smooth as possible; well below are a few items that should come in handy, as with all things prioritizing is the key. Also keep in mind that the more you buy at one time (i.e buying in bulk) the cheaper the cost for each student.


Lab coats: depending on your route to medicine many students usually own a lab coat prior to entry into the faculty, In such a case you might not necessarily have to purchase a new one however seeing that on some days you may have more than one labs, another might just do you well. Lab coats are a must have as most lab sessions require that students are wearing their lab coats in they wish to attend.

any persons have the notion that medical students are all about books, following acceptance many of us call our friends to put them on notice for a rain check on all gatherings and outings for the next five years. This however is a stereotype. For those of us who still want to maintain some degree of sanity I advice that you manage your time wisely – study hard, play harder. Below is a concise list of places that medical students have found to be relaxing and enjoying,

Relaxation Devon House 26 Hope Road, New Kingston Offers a tranquil setting for casual reading or just hanging out with friends (don’t forget the ice cream, it’s a must try).
