The IT Officer is responsible for the development and maintenance of the IT systems that are used by all members and the committee of the ANU Medical Students’ Society (ANUMSS). When COVID-19 forced teaching at ANU Medical School online in 2020, it became clear that ANUMSS lacked the capacity to engage their members effectively from a distance. 2021 will be a year of big changes to improve the ANUMSS technological presence. You can keep an eye on the progress of these changes in the roadmap below.
