Who we are
The Finnish Medical Students’ Association in Riga (RiSLO) was founded in 2012 for the Finnish medicine and dentistry students in Riga.
Today there are more than 150 Finns studying full time for a medical degree in Latvia with the number of enrolling students increasing year by year. RiSLO belongs to the same umbrella association, FiMSA (Finnish Medical Students’ Association, in Finnish: Suomen Medisiinariliitto ry), as other Finnish medical students’ associations, which operate domestically in Finland.
Our student association provides information and support for its members from the start of their studies up till the graduation, organizing a variety of different events and get-togethers from semester kick-off parties to professional seminars. In order to help our members to stay informed about past and upcoming events, current topics, as well as internship and exchange opportunities, RiSLO releases a monthly newsletter and a magazine twice a year.
