The Aesculapian Society (AS) was first organized by the medical students of Queen's University in 1872, and has remained a strong voice for Queen’s medical students ever since. All students registered in the School of Medicine become members of the Society, which includes as honorary members all graduates in Medicine and members of the School of Medicine at Queen's University.

On behalf of the Aesculapian Society (AS), I would like to welcome each and every one of you to the QMed family! Here at Queen’s we pride ourselves on a number of things, but above all it is our sense of community and the closeness of our student body.

The AS was established by Queen’s medical students in 1872 and consists of all active students in the School of Medicine. The primary goal of the AS is to serve and advocate for its members. The ability to which the AS is able to do this is in no small part dictated by student engagement, involvement in AS activities, and feedback to the AS.

If you have questions, concerns or feedback, do not hesitate to contact any of the AS representatives at any time. All AS meetings are open to medical students and we encourage all students to attend as many meetings as they would like.

If you have any questions at all about Queen’s Medicine, the AS, Class Council or how to get involved, find me at SMB or shoot me a message at president@qmed. ca. I look forward to meeting all of you and on behalf of the Aesculapian Society, welcome to the family.
