    Goals / Remit

    The European Medical Students Association (EMSA) is an enthusiastic volunteer-based organization advocating and representing the voice of medical students of geographical Europe. EMSA was founded in 1990 in Brussels, by medical students for medical students.

    -To act as a forum for medical students in Europe, to discuss topics related to the fields of medical education, (...)
