IFMSA-CFMS International Exchange Program

Applications for summer 2017 exchanges are now CLOSED! Please check back in September 2017 for new opportunities! 

CFMS participates in an international exchange program where medical students undertake clinical or research projects, each four-weeks in duration, in a foreign country or region. The exchange program is run independently by each host country or region. It is for students who are independent, self-directed, open-minded, and able to handle unforeseen challenges and take learning into his or her own hands.

This past season (Summer 2016) over 160 students participated in exchange. In the upcoming season, a total of 167 placement spots are available in over 40 countries!
