The event actually was implemented as a national congress known as “The National Congress for Students and Young Doctors” in 1997, over 20 years ago. In its beginnings, the event was organized by the Romanian Federation of Medical Students’ Associations and the first edition was held in March 1997 in the city of Târgu Mureș.
The IMSCB, short for the International Medical Students’ Congress of Bucharest is one of the greatest events to happen every year in December within the walls of our university – Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy.
Our Congress has its own history, an untold story that we are glad to share with you.
The 4th edition of the International Medical Students’ Congress of Bucharest is wonderfully created to honour the impressive work of Matei Balș.
Celebrating science and innovation, each edition was specially dedicated to an emblematic figure (George Emil Palade, Victor Babeș and Ana Aslan) that has changed the course of medical history.
In 2017, we have decided to expand our horizons and to launch our congress internationally. This is how the International Medical Students’ Congress of Bucharest was born. This way, the Congress opened its doors to students and doctors from all over the world. Our community of medical students has built a united front in order to make the IMSCB an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.
IMSCB this year will be a new adventure and we invite you to participate and make history with us.
Due to the development of the pandemic, we have decided to take a big step this year and to move the entire congress online. This would be the first medical students’ international congress based in Romania that will take place exclusively online.
We are confident that it will be a great, unique experience that any student could participate in an interactive way and from the comfort of one’s home.
