Necessity, they say is the mother of invention. There came a time since the establishment of the Accra College of Medicine where many occurrences directly and indirectly affected the lives of students in the institution. In the wake of this period, students fought for the establishment of a student representative council so that their voices would be heard. This desire for a united body birthed the Students’ Representative Council (SRC), as a common platform for the collective representation of students in decision-making.
THE PRESENT SRC.
The SRC of Accra College of Medicine has grown to embrace a lot of responsibilities and are considered in the development of the school. Accra College of Medicine’s SRC concerns itself with all aspects of students’ welfare within the University. In addition to that, it coordinates the activities of academic, religious and recreational clubs and societies. It serves as a link between the student body and the administration.
Once an individual becomes a registered student of the Accra College of Medicine, the individual automatically becomes a member of the SRC. All students are hence eligible and encouraged to participate in one or more of the various programs and events of the SRC. Accra College of Medicine’s SRC is a constituent organization of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) as well as the Federation of Ghana Medical School Association (FGMSA).
Aims and objectives.
