Every year the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations hosts two meeting of our General-Assembly, once in March and once in August. This year’s March Meeting is being hosted by our counterparts in Slovenia (SloMSIC) and applications are now open to be part of the Students for Global Health-UK delegation!

Although the IFMSA is a collection of medical student organisations (known as National Member Organisations, or NMOs), the UK delegation is open to students of any discipline. IFMSA General-Assembly meetings are a week long and jam-packed with training, discussions, partying and voting on the leaders and direction of the Federation. The IFMSA as a global community has 1.3 million members, but each general assembly meeting has about one and half thousand participants from almost all of the IFMSA’s 135 NMOs. More blogs about peoples’ experience and information about the March Meeting will be posted here soon but for now, have an explore of the invitation package from the host Organising Committee, and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any more questions!
In the meantime, check out the application form, think about what your answers might be and follow the event’s Facebook page to get all the latest updates!
