The Student Committee on Medical School Affairs (SCOMSA) is the student government of Boston University School of Medicine. It is a committee of students comprised of elected representatives from each class. Members meet on a monthly basis to review budget requests from individuals and campus organizations, and to discuss important issues facing the student body. The committee serves as a liaison between the students and administration and its goal is to facilitate open communication between the two.
In addition, SCOMSA funds individual and group travel to conferences, and provides funding to student interest groups for meetings and seminars that help enrich the medical school experience.
Furthermore, SCOMSA hosts and/or organizes the Fall BBQ, the Fall Informal, the Winter Semi-formal, Match day events, Skit Nite, post-exam parties, and other activities with the aim to make the experience here at BU as enjoyable as possible.
