medics (medical international conference for students)

19-22 April, 2018
Bucharest, Romania

MEDICS was founded in 2016 with the purpose of raising the standard of student and young doctors scientific meetings in Romania and in Europe. We believe that it is important to have a healthy academic environment to develop in, so we are putting our best efforts to bring the academia and their research experience to students.

The last two editions of MEDICS were highly praised medical students conferences gathering more than 700 participants from about 40 countries. We had a record 51 workshops and 25 conferences and keynote lectures.

Leuven, Belgium


Partners of the Symposium are the Harvard Program in Global Surgery and Social Change, the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists, King's College London, and the G4 Alliance.

The international symposium targets a varied and global audience of specialists, residents, and students, introducing them to the basic concepts of global surgery, its recent developments and future steps to take by both the international community and local stakeholders. Speakers include Global Surgery experts from all over the world, including surgeons, anaesthesiologists and obstetricians with both in-field and academic experience, and public health and financing experts from international organisations and civil society.


Early fee registration and abstract submissions have been opened for the Symposium. The agenda can be found here, whereas speakers are announced one by one on the event page before being grouped on the website. Reduced room rates are available for ho(s)tels in Leuven, which is easily accessible through all means of travel. Moreover, the Symposium aims to establish a travel support fund for selected students and residents from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), which we aim to maximize through our additional crowdfunding campaign in order to bring equity into surgery.

The competition takes place entirely online and there is no physical venue, thereby completely eliminating the barrier of travel and registration costs. Instead, all submitted abstracts are carefully peer-reviewed by the URNCST Journal editorial team, and all accepted abstracts will be published as a single abstract book in the URNCST Journal and given a DOI and citation. Thus, authors have a pre-specified publication date to look forward to, provided that their abstract is accepted. All participants will receive two detailed peer-review evaluation forms to help them improve their research project, regardless of their submission’s outcome.
