#Roundtables &


The anniversary edition of our congress is about celebrating and embracing uniqueness, therefore, we are embarking on a new journey keeping in mind the following statement: ”Be the change that you wish to see in the world”.

Inspired by this premise, IMSSB set out with the aim of becoming an environment for debating and discussing medical and non-medical issues, bringing together students and healthcare professionals from all over the world.

Medical Students’ Associations

Gather your ideas and dare to expose them to your colleagues while being guided on each topic by a group of specialists in the field during one of the carefully prepared roundtable meetings. All the suggestions will be assembled into “The Future Medical Changes” – a Summary of the showcased differences and opinions related to the current and future medical systems in Romania and around the world, presented at the IMSSB.

The Summary will also be submitted to FASMR (the Romanian Federation of Medical Students’ Associations) for further analysis and publication.

Our Congress also provides a platform for young science lovers to express and share their skills in the research field with other fellow students.

It will be held on Saturday, in one of the auditoriums specially designed for live conferences, and you will have the chance to tell the audience how you managed to perform at the highest level.
