COMPETITIONS

Challenge Yourself

By nature, medical students are driven by an insatiable curiosity. They are lovers of the constant CHALLENGE. By enrolling in the iMed's Competitions, they may even win the prize of their lives.botao

WORKSHOPS

Medicine in Action

Alongside with research, practice is one of the fundamental pillars of Medicine. This way, it is essential to EMPOWER students to train their basic practical skills, improving therefore their clinical and surgical performance. botao
