Training Section - IFMSAs spine

IFMSA-Sweden has recently begun to focus more on capacity building activities, so-called trainings. The aim is to increase the skills of its members, in areas that can help us in our professional roles in the future, but also in our personal life, and in our activities as students. It held so-called training sessions for each National Weekend, but you can also anornda or ask for activities locally, as well as learn more about the international opportunities available [here]!


Trainings are training being conducted through interactive and non-formal methods. Most often led the activities of other students who have undergone training to keep in training workshops / sessions.

Training in these skills will help students to more confidently and effectively able to succeed with their projects in the various working groups within IFMSA. Additionally prepare students through trainings for future work in both local, national and international health care system or health organizations. The classes are offered by accredited IFMSA Trainers particularly during (but not exclusively) national events and conferences, and locally by arrangement.
