Student Organizations



The European Medical Students’ Association – Association Européenne des Étudiants en Médecine (EMSA) is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation representing medical students from all across Europe. Founded 1990 in Brussels, it is the only voice of students within the European Medical Organisations. EMSA is recognised by the European Parliament, the European Commission, and the United Nations. The association provides a platform for high-level advocacy, projects, trainings, workshops and international meetings. Its activities gather around Medical Education, Medical Ethics and Human Rights, Health Policy, Public Health, Medical Science and European Integration and Culture. Our goal is to implement solutions that highly value personal input, local autonomy, and regional characteristics, but also facilitate international cooperation, multidisciplinary dialogue, cultural understanding and promote interprofessional collaborative practice and interprofessional education through our advocacy.
