IFMSA General Assemblies
NMOs send delegations to IFMSA’s General
Assemblies (GA) twice a year, which occur every March and August. These
GAs are one-week long meetings where presidents from various NMOs come
together to form the primary voting body of the Federation, and
leadership from the Standing Committees gather to carry out
collaborative efforts. In addition to these organizational necessities,
attendees are usually provided with opportunities for training and
various programming related to the GA’s particular theme. The locations
are decided by a bidding process, and these events are usually attended
by 600-900 medical students from across the federation.
