(European Medical Student Association-Koç University)

Koç University School of Medicine is also a member of the European Medical Students Association. They organize a summer school in our medical school every year since they become a member. To date, they have organized 7 summer schools, one on cardiovascular diseases, three on neurological sciences, one on reproductive health and fertility, one on cancer, and one on organ transplantation and artificial organs. Our students made important contributions to medical education at national and international level with these meetings. Web pages for this summer school are listed below.

We are looking forward to seeing you as a member of our growing family in the new term. May the Blue Spirit of EMSA be with you!
