Student Working Groups

Official document about the Formation of a “Student Working Group” at LU-FMS

The "Student Working Group" within the Faculty of Medical Sciences comprises delegates or student representatives chosen from among students associated with the Heartbeat club ( based on their active, dynamic, and well-known presence within the student body. These individuals constitute the core members of the Student Working Group. Additional representatives of students who have actively engaged in productive activities at the faculty, such as LEMSIC members ( and MEDICA member groups (, may also be included in this group.

The Student Working Group is expected to actively participate in the decision-making and organizational processes of the faculty. The faculty is dedicated to involving them in all committee meetings and scheduling regular bi-weekly meetings with the dean to receive their input and keep them informed about faculty updates.


The Student Working Group operates as an independent entity and will engage collaboratively with all faculty committees within the Faculty of Medical Sciences. It comprises a diverse group of students, representing different medical academic years and programs within the faculty.


Members of the Student Working Group are typically students currently enrolled in the Faculty of Medical Sciences. The composition includes undergraduate, and graduate students, offering a broad perspective on student concerns and needs. The exact number of members can vary but is often kept manageable to facilitate effective communication and decision-making.

The establishment of this group took place during the academic year 2022-2023, with its initial involvement in the accreditation steering committee. During this phase, students actively contributed to tasks such as data collection, organization, and the preparation of necessary materials for accreditation. Starting from the academic year 2023-2024, the group's structure was formalized according to the chart provided.

The selection of delegates is conducted through a structured process that involves mutual consent and agreement of the students. Subsequently, it becomes the responsibility of outgoing delegates from the previous year to arrange a meeting with the dean at the beginning of each academic year. This meeting serves to introduce the new members and provide all the requisite contact information, as outlined in Annex No. 1.

Following the identification of the core members, the Student Working Group is required to issue an announcement on both the LU-FMS website and their own platform, inviting students who actively participate in faculty activities to express their interest in becoming part of this group. The ultimate determination regarding the number and selection of additional members will be made by the dean, who will meet with these prospective members and conduct interviews to gauge their enthusiasm and readiness to shoulder the responsibilities associated with this group.
