"Know what your warning signs are. Cultivate deep friendships and pay a lot of attention to your friends. There are 110 of you here, many of them will be your allies some 40 years later", these are tips about managing doctors' wellbeing by Associate Professor Ruth Stewart, Chair of the
@ACRRM4ruralhealth Eduction Council. They certainly resonate with the #NLDS2017 theme:

Creating Connections that are #closer to our passion,
#stronger with @yourAMSA, and #empowered in the friendships with other medical students across Australia and New Zealand.

A very warm thank you to the #NLDS2017 committee, who have delivered their vision and beyond.
Congratulations dear Honor, Ming, Vru, Cathryn, Jess, Andrew, Jan, Brett, Ynez ( happy birthday! 🎉) and Lyndsay!
What a pleasure and inspiration it has been to meet so many fellow leaders in the past 5 days.
See you in 40 years, friends! But first #Councilvention in June! . . .

It has been a good start to AMSA National Leadership Development Seminar 2017.
#NLDS2017 Co-Convenors Honor Magnon @homags and Ming Yong @mingusprime encourage delegates to connect and create, in addition to the upskilling and initiative engineering. Think lateral, interpersonal network building and being creative in your personal and professional development over the next four days.

Academic co-covenors Jess Redmond @jessredmond_ and Andrew Coulshed pose two questions to kick start the adventure:

What kind of leader do you want to become?
What do you need to do to get there? .
@uowamsa is excited to be among the many fantastic talents across Australia and New Zealand medical schools. Much to learn from each other and about ourselves. Let's go.

The 14-year rumination on the marriage equality come to fruition, as Dr Brad McKay, Professor Kerryn Phelps AM, Liam Mason, Dr Joe Monteith and Ashna Basu gather in Sydney ahead of the release of the AMA's new position on same-sex marriage. Photo: James Brickwood @sydneymorningherald
Repost from #NSWMSC: Our President Ashna Basu and Advocacy Officer Liam Christopher Mason were proud to represent NSWMSC in supporting the Australian Medical Association's policy position on marriage equality. They are pictured here alongside Prof Kerryn Phelps AM, Dr Brad McKay and Dr Joe Monteith.

Here are some words from Ashna, NSWMSC President 2017. "As future doctors, we have a duty of care not only to our LGBTQI patients, but to our LGBTQI colleagues as well. We know that LGBTQI individuals experience higher rates of mental illness, and that societal heteronormativity impairs their ability to comfortably access treatment at any level - and that's unacceptable.
Marriage equality is a vital step towards celebrating the LGBQTI members of our community, who have every right to have their love recognised in the same way as heterosexual couples."

Lokah samastah sukhino bhavamtu.
May all beings be happy and free from suffering.
Most definitely please be free of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia & Transphobia - Australia (https://www.facebook.com/IDAHOBITaus/) @may17idahot

Here at @UOW , the student group Allsorts Queer Collective is organising a #BBQ and #bakesale at Juggler Lawn at lunch time today (near the kangaroo statues, close to @UOWUniBar ). Why not join them for a bite and celebrate the university's first dedicated all-gender bathrooms in Building 25 Level 1. Pictured is the #DIYrainbow outside the library painted by #UOWAllyNetwork (http://staff.uow.edu.au/eed/allynetwork/index.html)
When progress is to be celebrated without reservation, the progress-yet-to-cover requires support and action from every conscientious individual. We don't need to look far to see that Marriage Equality @amequality has yet to arrive in Down Under. Across the Pacific at the moment, there is the inhumane and homophobic violence reported from Russian republic of #Chechnya ( @Amnesty International Australia: https://www.amnesty.org.au/act-now/iar-825-chechnya-abductions/). Doctors are in the more privileged position in society but still they are not immune from discrimination on the basis of sexual preference or sexual identity. Doctors and medical students should join hands with wider society to work towards a more inclsuive and safer society, where everyone can be the person they want to be.
Will the Australian Government, medical schools, medical student societies and us as inidividuals respond to the @youramsa Australian Medical Students' Association's call to action?

NSW 2018 Executive Bid Consultation and Information Session
Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1030783260389154/

This year, a group of NSW students will put forward an Executive Bid for the Australian Medical Students' Association (AMSA) [info: https://amsa.org.au/blog/2018-amsa-executive-bid-information]
They are inviting passionate individuals to attend their causal event in Sydney on Saturday 13 May.
@uowAMSA encourages fellow @UOW students to seize this opportunity to offer feedback about your experiences with AMSA and how they could have been improved.
If you can't attend the event but would like to contribute, ask questions or join via Google Hangout, please send an email to alex.farrell@amsa.org.au.
This Consultation, Expression of Interest and Information Session is your opportunity to:
- Learn more about the bid and our team
- Learn about what positions there are and what they involve
- Offer your insights into how you see the different roles and branches within AMSA working best
- Discuss your experiences and visions for AMSA
- Ask questions

Medical Students: #Budget a missed opportunity for medical workforce investment ................................ @yourAMSA President, Rob Thomas, said: “We are pleased to see that there will be no increases in medical student places from new medical schools, and that funding continues for the crucial Commonwealth Medical Internships Program. “However, this budget was a real opportunity for the government to contribute to the future health workforce by increasing #specialisttraining in #regional and #rural areas and ensuring medical schools are adequately funded. “AMSA has called for more places in the Specialist Training Program to be delivered in rural and regional areas, as this is required to ensure a #sustainable rural medical workforce. The budget delivers no net increase overall, and a marginally increased proportion from 39% rural places currently to 45% by 2021. “This means that those who want to work rurally will continue to have to undertake the majority of their training in metropolitan areas, decreasing the likelihood that they will be rural doctors in the long-term.
