The 66th official March Meeting of Montenegro was truly a step forward for medical associations in Georgia. It was the first time delegates from Georgia attended all of the Standing Committees IFMSA had to offer, and great progress has been made to establish GMSA as a permanent member of the federation. With great pride we can say that from the six local Standing Committees here in Georgia, three are headed by students from David Tvildiani Medical University. Medical Education, Professional Exchange and Research Exchange are the three areas university students prevailed in. The General Assembly allowed our students to form connections, make friends and future contacts in the medical world.
In the Standing Committee on Medical Education (SCOME) our students represented our university, they received commendations for being engaged in their own curriculum, for organizing scientific events, for engaging in peer-learning and generally trying to improve their own education. International students were especially amazed when they heard that our faculty is so open to feedback, that things they have been fighting for years are so achievable in our Institution.
In the Standing Committee on Professional Exchange (SCOPE), we are set on a course of activation. Our last piece of documentation is undergoing processing, and we had students approach us already, interested in holding unilateral and bilateral exchange programs. Students from countries like: Hungary, the Czech Republic and Austria showed great interest.
