Introduction to IFMSA - SCOPE
The International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) is an independent, non-governmental and non-political federation of medical students gathering more than 1 million medical students from over 100 countries.
The IFMSA was founded in May 1951, Copenhagen-Denmark and it is officially recognized as a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) within the United Nations’ and recognized by the World Health Organization as the International Forum for medical students.
The Standing Committee On Professional Exchange (SCOPE)was at the core IFMSA’s foundation with the mission to: “Promote cultural understanding and co-operation among medical students and all health professionals, through the facilitation of international students’ exchanges” .
Today 8400 exchanges are being done by IFMSA-SCOPE. These combined make SCOPE the largest students-run exchange program in the world, having “exchanged” more than 232,000 medical students throughout its history.
