Korte beschrijving: Medicine under pressure


From the 13th to the 17th of September 2017, EMSA (European Medical Students' Association) will organise the 11th Antwerp Medical Students' Congress: “Under Pressure”.
This edition will be all about medicine in extreme conditions, with a focus on (natural) disasters and war.

The conference is split into two parts. On the 13th and 14th of September we offer an opportunity to (bio)medical students from all over the world to present their research to colleague-students and win prizes in our competition.
From the 15th until the 17th of September we are staging lectures and workshops given by internationally renowned experts and university teachers all working within the field of extreme medicine. The program includes lectures and presentations ranging from army medicine to disaster management and the treatment of shock. We will also provide our delegates with the opportunity to participate in interactive workshops and watch a live surgery.

The academic program is completed by an extensive social program to network with fellow international students and get to know the historically important town of Antwerp. The program will include a guided tour of the city, a museum visit, pub crawl and much more.
