Our Events | In each Chapter


In each Chapter of SSHMS, in cooperation with academic and non-academic partners, meetings are organised about the hot topics of medicine and society, for instance, the bone marrow donation, the organ transplantation. Another aim is the organisation of meetings about breakthroughs in medicine for medical students and students of faculties close to medicine.

Educational Workshops

During the whole year workshops of trauma suturing, BLS Seminars, Clinical Sill Courses are organised for medical students. The target is not only the education of medical students in simple clinical skills but also the simulation of difficult cases which they have to deal with as future doctors.

Established Events

Having developed stables cooperations with academic and non-academic partners, in each Chapter some events have been established as events of national range. For instance, the program ΕΚΥΒΕ ( Helping the Rural Health Centers of Northern Greece ), the ABCS3 ( Applied Clinical Seminar with Scenarios for Students – Thessaloniki), the CCIM ( Clinical Course of Internal Medicine – Patras ) and the ECS ( Emergency Cases School – Alexandroupolis).

Medical Volunteerism

The SSHMS with the aim of raising awareness and activating society, regularly organises voluntary donations, bazaars for supporting vulnerable social groups, collection of basic products for institutions and vulnerable social groups, and street actions to inform the community about major health issues.
