Each year, the Team of Officials are assisted by a group of members who serve the Federation in their capacity of international assistants. They are an valuable asset for IFMSA and help ensuring the continuous development of the Federation. They work closely on the regional and international levels to help accomplish the annual work plan and goals defined in the IFMSA Strategy 2014-2017. They often are the bridge between the Federation global work, and the national and local officers.

The Regional Assistants of the Standing Committees work both with the standing committees international team and with the regional team. They are in charge of organizing the sessions at their regional meetings.
