About us


Aberdeen Student Society for Academic Medicine (ASSAM) was established in 2012 with the hope to encourage undergraduate interest in medical research. Even though our primary aim is to inspire medical and dental students to pursue a career in academia, we also try to highlight the importance of basic research skills and critical appraisal in daily clinical practice.

ASSAM is a registered student society at the University of Aberdeen. We are generously supported by both the University of Aberdeen Development Trust and INSPIRE, the Academy of Medical Sciences. ASSAM are also affiliated to the National Student Association of Medical Research (NSAMR).
