SSS AT A GLANCE

The Students' Scientific Society (SSS) is a non-religious, non-political, and non-profit student-run organization, active since 1968, aiming to offer future physicians a comprehensive overview on global health issues and general methods by which they can tackle them. Through the opportunities the it offers, the SSS develops the conventional medical student into a more socially aware and practically proficient junior doctor intent on actively influencing change upon transnational world health problems.

The SSS has inspired generations of medical students to develop the leadership abilities and skills to take on challenges and to improve the world around them in an early yet crucial period of their career. Engaging in the SSS encourages both professional and personal collaborations irrespective of geographical, social, cultural, religious, racial, sexual and political differences. As a result, our future doctors are becoming more practically aware and internationally competent physicians.

As a leading registered National Member Organization at IFMSA-Egypt, a full member in the International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA) worldwide, the SSS seeks to unleash the enormous capabilities within Cairo University’s medical students and to sow the seedlings of their ideas, skills, ambitions, and aspirations in an environment in which they can grow and sprout out to expanded horizons.

OUR STORY

After the attack on Egypt and the crash of all student activities in the university back in 1967, a prodigious man decided to be the change he wanted to see in the world and started the SSS. A non-religious, non-political student activity; he gave it from his effort, time, mind, and soul enough to make it last forever; and the proof is here 50 years after. Dr Ahmed Saeed founded the society in 1968. The very first event organized by the SSS, was held on the 7th of November, 1968; it was a seminar held by the late Professor Dr Mohamed Kamel Hussein, one of the few to hold a great position in Medicine and literature in Egypt. Dr Ahmed Saeed is currently a consultant in hospital Quality and Risk Management in Canada.

“A generation which ignores history has no past and has no future”

“When it all started in 1968. The SSS concept caught on medical students by a storm and the chain reaction will never stop. Your dedication is actually producing wonders in this century.
So, to all Current Generation, thank you very much for all your formidable input, you are now writing “the memories of the future”.

Dr.Ahmed Saeed,

SSS secretary 1968
