The 6th edition of our congress is about celebrating and embracing uniqueness. Therefore, we are embarking, for the second year now, on the beautiful journey of being civically involved in the society, keeping in mind the following statement: ”Be the change that you wish to see in the world”.
Inspired by this premise, IMSCB 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.
Roundtables are open dialogues that take place in English between the speaker and the audience, regarding various topics, which we consider a great opportunity for our participants to enlarge their scientific horizons.
