IFMSA – POLAND
Together with our colleagues in more than 121 countries, we are involved in a global network that connects thousands of medical students. Our organization gives medical students the opportunities they need to go beyond the hospital walls, and lecture halls. Motivated, intelligent young people are determined to look beyond the doors of their medical school to see the world outside.
IFMSA-Poland send each year about 500 students from twelve Polish Medical Universities to study with colleagues from other countries, other continents, other culture... The same amount of young, well motivated people from more than 80 countries choose Poland for their clerkships and spend the holidays in our country.
Our members organize each year many projects and campaigns on major diseases such as HIV/AIDS, smoking and cardiovascular diseases or on important problems of medical students in Poland. By meeting active students from other medical universities, members of IFMSA-Poland share their ideas, skills and experience about how students can act on the issues that motivate them. Twice a year we meet in different places in Poland, spending 3 days on trainings, discussions and relax, of course.
On an international level, we arranged few transnational projects especially in HIV/AIDS topics. These gave our members the opportunities to proof their language competence and skills working with partners from other countries.
If only you are a medical student in Polish University and you want spend your time in absolutely wonderful atmosphere just join us! We look forward to hearing from you!

The Volunteer Center organization
The Volunteer Center organization was entered into the register of university student organizations in July 2014 by decision of the Rector of the Medical University of Lublin.
The first supervisor of the organization was Mrs. prof. dr hab. of health sciences Marta Makara-Studzińska.
Currently, the supervisor of the organization is Mrs. prof. dr hab. of medical science Marzena Samardakiewicz, and the management board of the organization consists of students of the Medical University of Lublin.
Any student at the Medical University of Lublin can become a member of the Center.
The goal of the Volunteer Center Organization is:
- Promoting the idea of volunteering among the academic community.
- Initiating and supporting various forms of voluntary activities in the academic community of the Medical University of Lublin.
- Undertaking cooperation with organizations and institutions providing assistance to those in need.
- Providing general information about volunteering.
The idea of promoting volunteering among the academic community was born in October 2013, when a group of students of our Alma Mater, members of the Student Scientific Association of Młodzi Medycy, decided to join their forces to help the sick and their families. In the 2013/2014 academic year, over 150 people reported willingness to participate in volunteering: students of nursing, medicine, physiotherapy, midwifery, pharmacy, public health, nutrition and emergency medicine.
Supported by prof. Marta Makara-Studzińska, they became volunteers of the Good Samaritan Hospice in Lublin. They formed a well-coordinated 36-person team that for 5 months supported the care of Hospice patients, supported the patients in their daily activities, lifted their spirits by conversation or simply kept company in silence. Students volunteered a total of 525 hours of on-call time at the Lublin hospice. They intend to continue cooperation with the Good Samaritan Hospice in Lublin in the coming years.
They also have numerous one-day actions organized by student volunteers, including occasional games for patients of the Children's Clinical Hospital in Lublin, Andrzejki ball for students of the Special Educational Center in Lublin.
As an Organization of the Volunteer Center, we plan to expand the scope of our activities, which is why we are willing to cooperate with institutions/organizations providing assistance to those in need. We are open to new challenges!
We cordially invite you to join our group!
