The Leiden International (Bio)Medical Student Conference (LIMSC) is a student conference that will be held in March at the Leiden University Medical Center. LIMSC is one of the largest (bio)medical student conferences worldwide and strives to bring ambitious students from all over the world into contact with their peers who are interested in scientific research as well.
LIMSC takes place from the 13th to the 17th of March 2019. During this five-day conference, international students from all over the world come together to present their research. Next to presentations by fellow students, five prominent guest speakers are invited that will give inspiring guest lectures. On offer are a wide variety of workshops and during our social program you will get to know Leiden, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, but most of all: each other.
Attending LIMSC forms an unique experience, since students can learn a lot from their peers, and it is a wonderful opportunity to get in touch with the scientific world at an early age already. We believe that LIMSC fits perfectly with the international image that IFMSA pursues. Since students from all over the world will attend LIMSC (currently more than 55 countries as can be seen in the attachment, students can use this opportunity to strongly expand their international network. Participation is already possible for 15 euros, including the pub crawl, final party, lunch and drinks! Registrations are open until the 11th of February.
