The Scientific Congress of Hellenic Medical Students (SCHMS) is the most important
event of the Scientific Society of Hellenic Medical Students (SSHMS). It is a classic
event especially for the student community aiming to unify the whole medical
community through a common vision: the advancement of medical science in our
country by developing the scientific knowledge and personality of future physicians.
SCHMS gives medical students, as well as students from other schools of health sciences, the opportunity to take their first steps through preparing a complete scientific project, from the very first literature search on international scientific databases to finally presenting their work to the public. Furthermore, participants are given the opportunity to be trained in basic medical skills, to broaden their horizons and ultimately through interaction with their peers and teachers to receive stimuli from different directions that will lead them to a more solid foundation of their scientific identity.
Every year the congress is held in a different Chapter of SSHMS. The academic community has embraced SCHMC, as evidenced by the participation of thousands of health science students and hundreds of professors as well as by the high scientific quality of the congress. Therefore, SCHMS is ranked among the country’s most timeless and major medical conferences.
