AIMS Meeting [Annual International (bio)Medical Students Meeting] is the largest European Biomedical Conference organized by medical students from all years. It is essentially advocated by the Faculty of Medicine of the Lisbon Students’ Local Committee and highlights the importance of medical education for all students of health sciences though a diverse approach.
Founded in 2009, AIMS Meeting was first recognized as ENJOY Med (Encontro Nacional de Jovens Estudantes de Medicina – National Young Medical Students Meeting), and was meant for all students attending health science courses. By the 3rd edition, the congress expanded internationally, calling for a name change that would allow it to be recognized globally. As it developed further every year, new goals were set and accomplished. Namely, during the 8th edition, a grand milestone was reached as a record of 750 participants were received at the AIMS Meeting
