It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Singapore Medical Society of Victoria. We are an established Singaporean organisation here in Victoria whose main aim is to provide our members with a home away for home. With the welfare of our Singaporean medical students in mind, I look forward to the upcoming year packed with events to ensure that we never lose our roots.
To the incoming first years, I welcome you to the most liveable city in the world, and one of the best institutions to undertake your medical career. Your next 5-6 years of medical school will be an enjoyable one, filled with highs and lows. However, there are seniors above who are willing to give a helping hand if times of need, so do not be afraid to actively seek for advice if need be. You will make plenty of friends from all over the world throughout your time in medical school, and I hope these are the friendships that you will treasure.
For the returning medical students, this is another exciting chapter in your medical career. I look forward to working with each one of you throughout the year and wish you all the best in your medical career.
The 2017 SMSV executive committee will push forward to ensure that our members are well taken care of and our needs are adequately met. Please feel free to contact any one of us personally if you have any enquiries about SMSV.
Till then, study hard, play hard and be proud to be at Monash University.
2017 SMSV President
