Global Health Week 8-14 october 2018

Hälsa & Sjukvård

Join the Swedish Society for Medicine’s Student and Junior Doctor Section as we talk about global health all through week 41.

By organizing a series of events, we hope to stir the discussion and give you helpful insights to future career choices. We aim for a challenging, interactive and creative week with events on university campuses in Sweden - all through week 41!

This is a great opportunity to learn new facts, grab a coffee with like-minded students and mingle with the lecturers! Fika will (of course) be provided.
