Welcome to the European Medical Students’ Association webpage
We are a volunter-based organization advocating and representing the voice of all medical students of geographical Europe. EMSA is more than an organization; a team created by enthusiastic medical students, a key player moving medicine forward in Europe and a communication platform for all medical students in world. Founded in 1991, EMSA has become not only one of the important and most succesful student organization in Europe but also in world, by staying one step ahead of change throughtout its journey of 20 years.
EMSA members are a global player constantly moving toward its objective of duplicating its success in their countries at the European level. We are aiming to be "the best" thorugh student-focused work strategies, attaching due importance to medical education; knowing that developments born through science; internalizing medical ethics and honesty as sine qua non; and understanding that adding power to Europe gives us power in return as increasing European integration.
EMSA serves as an umbrella organization for its member faculties (mostly known as Faculty Member Organization-FMO) at individual medical faculties. FMOs exist as independent entities as well as members of the larger associations. EMSA's structure grants autonomy to its FMOs to meet their unique needs locally while making available to them an international network of pooled academic and organizational resources.
There is also an Individual Membership, which is open to any individual studying medicine in the geographical entity of Europe. Individual Members are entitled to attend EMSA events and benefit from EMSA's projects.
