IJMS World Conference of Medical Student Research, Oct 7th, 2023

The Internal Journal of Medical Students (IJMS) has worked for a long, uninterrupted time with a primary aim to serve as the main scientific diffusion platform for early-career scientists in medicine. This expands beyond the routine publication of manuscripts to empowering medical students' engagement in research and providing a platform for them to display their work.

Keeping the spirit of nurturing medical student research worldwide alive, the IJMS has decided to organize an online Research Conference where medical students and recent graduate physicians (up to 3 years of graduation) can present their research to an international audience.

The IJMS strongly believes in the importance of early-career scientists in medical research. The IJMS, therefore, through the upcoming conference, provides the opportunity for the aforementioned to have visibility and peer valuation of their work. As medical students gather together and share their research experiences, the hope is that there will be consequential increased engagement in research among medical students and a step forward towards the global empowerment of medical students with research skills and competence. To the best of our knowledge, there are no global research conferences for medical students on a platform such as the IJMS nor one organized and run by a medical student organization; the upcoming conference aims to change this issue.
