As students representation comes through clubs, volunteer teams and YU Students Union, There is another form of representation by selecting or electing one student or group of students for a specific mission requested by the faculty or the university. This mission is usually temporary for a specific period of time that could extend to an academic year. The selection is made by the party that needs this mission accomplished and by the coordination with faculty of medicine deanship.

Our medical students were represented in the following missions:

1- The medical student " Murad Abo Qamar" was selected by the administration of the university for the first time to be the whole university students representative in the University Council for the academic year 2018-2019. Thic council has an advisory nature and is renewed at the start of each academic year.

YMT

 

Yarmouk Medical Team (YMT) is a volunteer non-profit social team. It differs from the medical club which its administrative body is elected by its members and that is considered one of the university clubs. Our team is a volunteer team according to the mission. its membership is just by the desire to work in a team devoted for volunteer work. Any member could be the leader of the mission once the group agreed upon the plan. We collaborate with the other teams and clubs in the faculty and the university for the sake of demonstrating our students' skills in serving the community.

YMT launch was from the Faculty of Medicine campus. It's aim is to provide the students with some ancillary academic services that help them in their studies, curricular and extracurricular activities inside and outside the campus.

YMT activities are done by medical students of Yarmouk University.

Now in the mid of 2021, we celebrate more than four years of starting our activities in YMT; the team that we've gathered in as colleagues and friends to serve our faculty, university and community. We spread the message of volunteer team work among medical students to do a change for better.
 
 
 
YMT is an idea, and the idea lives forever.
We give hope and live by hard work looking forward for a better future.
