Maribor Medical Students’ Congress



Maribor Medical Students’ Congress (MMSC) is an educational project that enables young researchers, students of Faculty of Medicine University of Maribor, to present their work to those who attend the event. At FoM UM, the Dean’s awards for the best research assignments of the previous year are given annually. The awards are given to those students of FoM UM, who are actively involved in extracurricular research work, the aim and objective of which is not limited only to the reception of our Faculty’s highest recognition, but also includes the publishing of the researchers’ final findings in scientific journals and the introduction to the general public. Unfortunately, opportunities for researchers to present their findings at different conferences are sparse, which is why these gems far too often remain hidden from the public and its thirst for knowledge.

In addition to the student lecturers we would also like to extend an invitation to all other researchers, employed at FoM UM or elsewhere, willing to publish their work in renowned scientific publications. We also seek to further our collaboration with our colleagues from Medical Faculties in Ljubljana and Zagreb, as we strongly feel that given the short distances between us we could have more fruitful collaborations. The main objective of this project is to enable students to present intriguing research assignments, and by doing so, encourage younger generations to engage in the field of scientific research.

The requirement for the active participation at the congress is a finished research assignment, that has already gone through the process of evaluation (published reviewed article or the call for paper selection for the Dean’s awards).

The congress will take place in UKC Maribor on May 20th and 21st (16th Floor, Great Lecture Hall).
