Medical Education [SCOME]
SCOME, the Standing Committee on Medical Education, is a discussion forum for students interested in the different aspects of medical education in the hope of pursuing and achieving its aim. Medical Education should be a concern of every medical student as it shapes not only the quality of future doctors, but also the quality of healthcare.
Our mission is to build awareness on topics needed to change and improve Medical Education in Egypt to persue well educated phycisians with a broad perspective.
Students convene in SCOME to share and learn about medical education in order to improve it as well as benefit the most from it on a personal and professional basis.
We support active involvement in education on an individual level encouraging students to take the initiative and responsibility for their education both curricular and extracurricular, through: Seeking educational experiences and opportunities for further development, participating in extracurricular activities that simultaneously enrich them and benefit their peers or the community.
