Academic Medicine Society

Medical Society Sub-Committee

Sheffield Academic Medicine Society (SAMS) was founded in order to raise the awareness of and promote participation in medical research among students, by facilitating the free exchange of ideas between University or hospital staff and students.

The aims of the society are:

To raise the awareness of and enthusiasm for a career in academic medicine.
To develop a research platform to enable student participation in the medical research that is carried out in research groups throughout the university.
To develop avenues by which students can take steps towards a career in academic medicine by providing opportunities to build a research orientated portfolio and acquire fundamental research skills

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.

A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.

It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
