The Supervising Council (SupCo) currently consists of four members appointed from both the IFMSA General Assembly and external organizations. The SupCo is an active resource body responsible for overseeing the actions and decisions made by the Executive Board and Officials of IFMSA. The Supervising Council discusses individual strategic plans with the Officials; supervises the Officials throughout the term and offer advice as necessary (advice from the Supervising Council is not binding), and is impartial and objective in all its tasks. In addition to the tasks defined by the Constitution and the Bylaws, the Supervising Council can, on request, investigate and make decisions on any internal or external issue affecting IFMSA. Any decision made by the Supervising Council has to be presented at the next General Assembly Meeting.

The IFMSA Board of Recommendation is a group of esteemed professionals or authority figures (professors, physicians, representatives of international organizations, global health leaders etc.) who agree to pose as IFMSA advocates.

The Board of Recommendation does not have meetings; it has no official position and no compulsory tasks. Members of the Board of Recommendation can be asked to give advice or pose as a reference to IFMSA, but this depends on their own availability and capacity.

The IFMSA Executive Board is responsible for invitations to the potential members of the Board of Recommendation and the IFMSA President is responsible for its maintenance.

The current members of the IFMSA Board of Recommendation are listed below, along with the year in which they joined the Board:

  • Professor Colin Green, former CEO of the International Medical Education Trust 2000 (2006)
