ISCOMS is a congress organised by and for students. Thirty biomedical students are responsible for all scientific, financial, and organisational aspects of the congress. As the congress is organised every year by a new team of students, the advisory board can assist in the continuity of the congress. They have helped organising ISCOMS for many years now. Their expertise, experience and contacts are of great support for the Organising Committee. The advisory board consists of three seniors from the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG).

First year crew
The ISCOMS First Year Crew (FYC) is made up of 8 enthousisast first year (bio)medical students. The FYC gives the Organizing Committee a helping hand during the congress. They help build up the congress and they participate in the social and scientific programme. The FYC also awards one plenary speaker with the First Year Jury award. Although these first year students do not have a lot of medical experience, they will judge the plenary sessions open minded and with care. One of the things the FYC likes most about helping out at the congress is meeting and socialising with the international students, so if you see them at the congress, have a chat and say hi!
