University Ambassadors

The ambassadors of ISCOMS 2019 are students from all over the world who have visited ISCOMS themselves. Their experience at the congress has motivated them to help the organisation of ISCOMS to reach more students by using their own network. They are dedicated to promoting ISCOMS and helping other students to visit ISCOMS as well.

The ambassador programme started in 2006 with just a few enthusiastic participants. They spread the word about ISCOMS in their home-countries. This year 76 ambassadors are active in 23 countries to promote ISCOMS and they are of vital importance in organising the congress.
Their work consists mainly of promoting ISCOMS by distributing posters and flyers, digitally as well as on paper, and answering questions of students who are interested in visiting the congress. Some ambassadors even arrange information sessions or look into the possibility of arranging financial aid.

Below is a list of the ambassadors and their contact information. Ambassadors from your own country know the answer to a lot of your questions and can provide you with useful advice. They will also be able to answer questions about visas and travelling. Please dont hesitate to contact them; they will be more than willing to help.

If you are interested in becoming an ambassador yourself, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and sign up for the selection procedure at the congress. Also you can visit our website for more information or you can contact us at iscoms@umcg.nl

ISCOMS is not only a great opportunity to present your research, master new skills at master classes and workshops and attend lectures of the world’s most prominent scientists: it also offers an amazing possibility to get a social immersion into the worldwide medical community with likely-minded fellows, to get new valuable contacts and to make new friends with people all over the world. That is why I’ve decided to become an ambassador and to spread information about ISCOMS 2018 – people shouldn’t miss such a great event!

My name is Rejoice Senayah, a 5th year medical student of Uzhorod National University Ukraine. Am a Ghanaian and an ambassador for ISCOMS 2019. ISCOMS in my opinion can’t be described enough, you just have to experience it for your self. The researches, key note, workshops, oral sessions, Fam lab, poster sessions, the food and social programs are all awesome not forgetting the seenery. You just have to be there. See you at ISCOMS 2019. Paka !!!!
