I was wondering how much being on a committee for medical related societies like GPsoc, obs and gynae soc, teddy bear hospital etc. actually matter in job applications after you graduate? what are the most useful things you can do during uni to build your CV that also won't take up a ridiculous amount of your time? (other than doing well in exams of course)

Have a look at relevant application criteria if you want e.g. IMT, GP etc. The answer is: leadership, teamwork and commitment to speciality continue to form part of pre and post interview assessment.

Yeah, they usually do count. Stuff like committees would count for leadership.

I think there are quite often white space questions on "achievements outside medicine" also. Dunno how important that is though.

You think being on the GPsoc committee will improve your sanity?
