You want to meet with people who are like-minded with you? Or maybe you're here for fun? Too much free time? Or maybe you are dragged with the thrill of research and science? We are firmly convinced that we can meet the challenges that raises issues and believe that every moment spend with us will be a happy memory.


One simple question..and your answer is?

EMSA Macedonia is a non governmental, non profitable students association. It’s an FMO of the EMSA Europe family and it has lots of projects organized with one goal - to improve the practical medical education and bring a conection between students. Our biggest project is the International Emergency Medicine Summer School (EMSS), held traditionally in Ohrid this year for the 9th time in a row, from 5th to 9th of July in Hotel Klimetica in Ohrid, a city in Republic of Macedonia, by the beautiful Ohridlake. The EMSS is a remarkable 5 days experience, one that every medical student needs. It’s a mix from learning practical skills and having fun!

Are you getting worried about the fun and parties?

You shouldn't because we have taken care of that too. Starting with the Gala Opening and Closing ceremony that are held in the Hotel, parties in the town's best night clubs, beach games, theme party, tour in Ohrid and many more fun activities. Sound's like fun? The positive experiences from the students in the previous years of the Emergency Medicine Summer School speak louder than any words written and the satisfied faces of the participants are our greatest achievement.

A mix of Urgent Medicine and new friendships that may last for a lifetime!

Before you continue reading about this Emergency Medicine Summer School you need to answer yourself a very important question - “Do you know how to save a life?” If a man collapses in front of you, as a medical student, a future doctor, what would you do? If someone is bleeding to death, do you know how to help him? This is the question that bothers every medical student no matter which year of college he is, because gaining theoretical knowledge on the lessons is something different than the practical skills we all need to have.

Are you in? Maybe your country is not on the list? What are you waiting for?

The prefix International is just in the right place because every year we have participants from many different countries like Germany, Poland, Turkey, Netherlands, Belgium, Romania and many others, meaning only one thing - friendships, lots of friendships and xchangingexpirience! All you need to do is fulfill the registration form on our website.
