Kurdish European Medical Student Association (KEMSA) works as a network that strives to connect current and prospective medical students with the associated European and Kurdish medical institutes, associations, professionals, agencies and faculties. KEMSA as an organisation operates in a variety of manners to reach its goals and aspirations. These include sharing crucial information concerning the education and studies in various medical faculties in Europe. Furthermore, a vital part of medical education is the practical experience, which KEMSA intends to promote heavily by creating opportunities and internships in Kurdistan for the students from Europe and vice versa. KEMSA will also inform the public and its members about the current health care system and to create awareness about the various medical conditions in Kurdistan.
Who we are
The Kurdish European Medical Student Association (KEMSA) is a non-profit organization founded by two medical students: Reband Ahmed and Aram Azizi. It was established in November of 2013 in the city of Brno of the Czech Republic. At this time KEMSA began its networking via various social media outlets.
Today KEMSA is run by Kurdish medical students from diverse medical universities in Europe and consists of a growing range of members that have come together to establish national committees in the various European countries. During 2013, KEMSA became associated with the umbrella organisation Kurdish European Medical Association (KEMA).
- Our primary aims
The primary aim of KEMSA is to unite all Kurdish medical students currently studying in the various medical faculties in Europe, while also subsequently promoting the studies and future practice of its members. KEMSA also intends to bridge the gap between Kurdish medical students in faculties in Kurdistan with their counterparts in Europe.
