We are officially launching the third call for International Assistants, Program Coordinators, Youth preWHA Organizing Committee and Code of Conduct Committee for the term 2022/2023!
International Teams and Program Coordinators have always been one of the most important components of the leadership, work and achievements of the IFMSA. They will support the Officials in the execution of their plans, and bridge the gap between local structures and international ones. You can find all the available positions for the term 2022/2023, IT/PC tasks description and selection criteria in the call booklet (HERE). This term and for the first time, the new structure of the Code of Conduct Committee will see the light and the call for members is also open along with the IT/PC call.
Please note that the Team of Officials introduced new changes this year. Therefore, it is crucial to read the instructions carefully, you will find the exact procedure that needs to be respected in order to have a valid candidature.

In order to avoid confusion as to what to write in the “Position Candidate is applying for” section of the CF, we have written the exact names of positions to be written in this section. These can be found after the description of every position and in the summary table (HERE);
The reason for not sharing the validity of candidates right away is that we will need a few days to review all candidatures. Sharing candidatures right away gives you more time to share candidatures with your members and provide input. Selected candidates will be working in this position for the entire term and your input in the selection process will be very helpful. We will do our best to provide information on the validity of candidates as soon as possible;
All candidates must respect the IFMSA Constitution and Bylaws, and every candidate must fulfill the requirements in Bylaw paragraph 6.24 in order to be valid;
The Team of Officials was impressed with the big number of motivated and passionate IFMSA members who stepped up and put themselves out there to serve the federation for a whole year. We would like to use this opportunity to thank them for their tremendous efforts and appreciate their commitment towards the Federation. IFMSA is big enough for everyone and there’s still an opportunity to get involved through the 3rd call and other ventures.
Should you have any questions about the call, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us through [email protected] and we will reply as soon as we are able to. If you have any specific questions to the members of the TO, please find their email addresses (HERE).
