Each year, more than 15,000 students embark on a journey to explore healthcare delivery and health systems in different cultural and social settings with the IFMSA. This is achieved by providing a network of locally and internationally active students that globally facilitate access to different exchange projects, which usually last for four weeks. In Cambridge we will focus on the development of Public Health/Research Exchanges.
