International Meetings


IFMSA General Assemblies
IFMSA has two General Assemblies per year, one in March, the second in August. Each of them welcome over 900 delegates and over 20 externals and partner organisations. One of the national members organisations is elected by the IFMSA to carry the task of organizing the meeting; hence the location of the general assemblies changes every time. The most recent ones were held in Tanzania, Montenegro, Mexico, Malta, Macedonia, Turkey, Taiwan, Tunisia, Chile, United States, and India; the upcoming ones will be in Egypt (March 2018) and Quebec (August 2018).

IFMSA Regional Meetings
The Federation has subdivided its National Member Organizations in five regions: Africa, Americas, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Mediterranean (EMR) and Europe. Each has their own regional meeting, held at different times of the year, and welcoming between 150 and 400 participants. IFMSA-Jo is part of the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) and has had the honor of hosting the EMR Meeting twice since its foundation in 2006, once in 2012 and again in 2016. The most recent EMR Meetings took place in Kuwait, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon; the next EMR Meeting will be held in Morocco (February 2018).
