Who we are

The International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA), founded in 1951, is one of the world’s oldest and largest student-run organisations. It represents, connects and engages every day with an inspiring and engaging network of 1.3 million medical students from 139 NMOs in 130 countries around the globe.


Student Exchange

Each year, more than 15.000 medical students embark on a journey to explore health care delivery and health systems in different cultural and social settings.


Policy & Advocacy

As an international federation, we are in an optimal position to influence decisions taken on at all levels, collaborating with different organizations that go from a global reach to a local implementation.
