AIMS Meeting (Annual International Medical Students Meeting) is a conference organised by medical students, supported by the Faculty of Medicine of Lisbon Students’ Local Committee.
Born in 2009, AIMS Meeting had its beginning as ENJOY Med (which stands for Encontro Nacional de Jovens Estudantes de Medicina – National Young Medical Students Meeting), meant for all undergraduate students attending health science courses. By its 3rd edition, the congress became international, changing to its current name, and in the previous edition we reached a new milestone, receiving 750 participants.
Every year, during the three days of the event, doctors, scientists and students come together to debate some of the most relevant subjects of our era.
In addition to attending to inspiring lectures given by some of the most respected speakers in their fields, the participants may enroll in activities as research, clinical and scientific competitions, as well as various cultural and charity programs.
The Organising Committee of the 9th AIMS Meeting, composed of 21 students from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon (FMUL), is now working on the next edition, which will take place from the 16th to the 18th March 2018. Following the principles that guided our first edition, we are preparing three days full of the latest discoveries in the medical and scientific fields, challenging workshops and competitions, and likewise inspiring lectures that will help you becoming the doctors you wish to be.
