You and your National Member Organization can join an IFMSA Program by enrolling your activity under the Program and making it a Program Activity with all its benefits. The term enrolling an Activity means to apply to join an IFMSA Program with your Activity and for it to serve to measure the impact which all IFMSA NMOs have on the societies we serve. The IFMSA Programs activities include but are not limited to projects, campaigns, celebrations, workshops, events, training, theme based publications. Using the mutual efforts of medical students worldwide, we strive to bring the world closer to the sustainable and equitable well-being of everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, social, cultural, religious, political or economic background.
