It is common knowledge that studying medicine and health-related fields is not a proverbial piece of cake and takes a lot of time and effort. If, however, you manage to spare some time to go beyond the curriculum, you are free to join any of our student societies. Membership in such associations will allow you to broaden your medical horizons and join various student projects and events of social and scientific character, or simply help you integrate with our wonderful academic community.
We invite you to explore the options below:
