At a National Level
Scientific Conference of Hellenic Medical Students
The Scientific Conference of Hellenic Medical Students (SCHMS) is the pinnacle of the activities of the Scientific Society of Hellenic Medical Students (SSHMS). Organized on an annual basis, since 1995 and every year is held in a different Chapter of SSHMS.
Elective Placements Program “Apovasis”
It is a summer program organized annualy in collaboration with Healthcare Units in various destinations in Greece. During this program, students have the opportunity to work voluntarily in the context of regional General Hospitals and Health Centers while practicing ther clinical skills and getting to know the challenges of Primary Healthcare and Rural Practice.
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.
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.
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).
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.
