AMSA International day
AMSA International Day is the annual project of AMSA International, and for this year the theme will take reference to "Chronic Diseases".
The purpose of the event is to celebrate the AMSA Vision of Knowledge, Action and Friendship to maximize involvement of our members across our chapters in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
Every AMSA chapter will celebrate it at any time of the year most suitable for them, however, we will have one date where all our festivities will be shown online.
This date will be considered the deadline for AMSA chapters to submit photos, write-ups, and videos on how they have celebrated AMSA International Day!
Thus, the submission of the report can be done through Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Website etc.
The deadline submission is March 15th 2014.
Are you conducting innovative biomedical research?
Are you interested making your work public by presenting it on an international stage?
Or are you simply interested in learning about the latest biomedical research?
The International Student Congress of (bio)Medical Sciences (ISCOMS) is one of the world’s biggest annual (bio)medical student congresses taking place in Groningen, the Netherlands. It is a venue for student research exchange aimed at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students in the fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, kinesiology and other biomedical sciences! Last year they hosted 475 participants from 56 different countries. This year the congress will take place from the 3rd to the 6th of June 2014.
At ISCOMS, students can visit the congress as both presenting and non-presenting participants. The congress offers a scientific program with a pre-course on master research, student sessions (plenary, oral and poster) and workshops. It also features keynote speakers, such as Dr. Breuer, Prof. Dr. Ing. van den Berg and a Nobel Laureate! They’ll also feature an exciting social program, including a formal dinner and a post-congress tour.
