The Annual International Medical Students (AIMS) Meeting is an international medical congress hosted at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon, entirely held by students every year during the month of March. With renowned international and national speakers and a huge range of practical workshops on several medical fields, this is one of the most complete and alluring congresses for students in Europe. Since it is a three day congress, each one consists on a subject module and all the scientific lectures related to it. Besides these, there are also keynote lectures, clinical and scientific competitions, students’ presentations (poster, oral and plenary sessions) and a science speed dating with doctors and researchers. Its 8th edition will take place between the 10th and 12th March 2016 with the following modules:

Cutting Edge (Surgery),

Across Boundaries (Humanitarian Medicine and Infectious Diseases),

On the Battlefront (Oncology)

It is our main purpose to promote an enriching scientific setting for learning, interaction and communication among students, health professionals and researchers alike. As we deeply value the social and cultural dimensions of the human being, the AIMS Meeting also includes a social program and a charity program for all its participants.
