Who we are

Sveriges Läkarförbund Student Riga (SLFSR) is a branch of the Swedish Medical Association (SMA) also known as Sveriges Läkarförbund. SLFSR is a union and professional organisation created for and by students with the goal of promoting and strengthening ties both within the organisation and between the Swedish and the Latvian communities. We do so not only by holding events such as banquets (sittningar), pub nights, lectures and courses, but also by cooperation with local restaurants as well as pubs which offers our members special student prices.


Our primary aims

Additionally SLFSR represents the interests of Swedish medical students studying in Riga on two levels: the first is by working locally with other Latvia-based student organisations and universities; the second is by conveying our interests and concerns together with other branches of SMA in order to influence the development of healthcare in Sweden. Furthermore, we provide information and advice to help students throughout their studies.

Executive board

SLFSR was founded in 2017 by the re-organisation and renaming of the previous Swedish society “Svenska Studenter i Riga” (SSiR). The board consists of six seats, they are as follows:
