MedSoc is proud that we can facilitate vibrant online communities for students to communicate. We try and keep our pages as open as possible, but to maintain our community standards, there are a few rules and guidelines you need to keep in mind.
Any post or comment you make on a MedSoc affiliated page (including year groups and SIG pages), should be in line with the UNSW Student Code of Conduct. You can find a full description of what this means in our Social Media Policy, but broadly your posts should:
If a post does not meet these standards, MedSoc can remove it.
MedSoc is also able to delete any commercial or otherwise spam-like posts.
If you see a post on a MedSoc page that you think violates these standards, you can report it to us. To do this, use the “Report to admin” function on Facebook, or directly contact the relevant moderator if the report hasn’t been picked up.
Reports will be dealt with by the MedSoc moderators of the group, with oversight from the MedSoc Executive. It will be classified and dealt with as either:
Three official warnings will result in the student being removed from the group or page, for a time period that will be decided by the Public Relations Director.
If you would like to appeal a decision, you can do so by contacting the Public Relations Director. MedSoc Executive will consider the appeal and reassess whether the post did violate community standards.
This decision will then be final with regards to MedSoc, though students are able to take it further with the university as enabled under the UNSW Student Code of Conduct.
The poster, reporter or any other student member can escalate and appeal to the Faculty of Medicine at any time.
