Students’ Scientific Society (SSS) offers future physicians a comprehensive introduction to global health issues. Through the opportunities it offers, it develops culturally sensitive students of medicine, intent on influencing the transnational inequalities that shape the health of our planet. It sets the suitable atmosphere that qualifies them to be interactive medical students in their faculty; and professional, skillful contributors to the welfare of their community.
The SSS carries out a number of recruitment campaigns per year. Each recruitment campaign runs in two phases – Online and On-ground – where our committees, projects and activities are shared and explained to the future members of our ever-growing family. Application is through an online form posted here and on our Facebook page for the days specified for each campaign.

Want to become a part of our family? Stay tuned for our upcoming recruitment campaign!
