The Sydney University Medical Society (SUMS) is the representative body for all medical students enrolled in the University of Sydney Medical Program. We have a long and proud history, dating back to 1886, making us Australia's oldest medical student society. Since its inception, the Medical Society has enhanced the university experience of medical students through time-honoured social events, publications, academic seminars, athletic and wellbeing activities and community-service projects. We advocate for the educational interests of our members, through representation to the Sydney Medical School, New South Wales Medical Students Council, Australian Medical Students’ Association and Australian Medical Association.
