IFMSA is an independent, non-governmental, and non-political federation of medical student associations from around the world. It represents groups from 127 countries and consists of more than 1,300,000 medical students.

The main goal of IFMSA is to expose medical students to humanitarian and global health issues, facilitate partnerships between the medical student community and international organizations working on health, give students the opportunity to conduct research, and much more.

IFMSA Serbia follows the official guidelines and primarily works on promoting public health, with a focus on reproductive health and STIs, addiction, nutrition, and first aid.

By joining, students become a part of a global medical community, one which provides the opportunity to go on exchanges.

 Professional and Research Student Exchanges (SCOPE & SCORE)

SCOPE originated with the founding of IFMSA in 1951, and in 1953 for IFMSA-Serbia. The exchange program extends to 90 countries. SCOPE’s main goal is to promote understanding and collaboration among medical students via international exchange trips.


 Public Health projects (SCOPH)

SCOPH is a public health committee that recruits medical students who are enthusiastic about improving the public health of their communities and general surroundings. This committee’s main job is to educate and promote a healthy lifestyle.


Sexual and Reproductive Health + HIV/AIDS projects (SCORA)

The Standing Committee of Sexual and Reproductive Health including HIV/AIDS (SCORA) primarily focuses on spreading knowledge about and raising awareness of reproductive health. It also works on reducing discrimination against HIV-positive individuals.


 Human Rights and Peace (SCORP)

The Standing Committee of Human Rights and Peace (SCORP) was founded in 1983, a time when the refugee crisis became a global problem. Back then, it was called the Standing Committee of Refugees and Peace, with its main goal to raise awareness about the struggles and lives of refugees.



The Standing Committee of Medical Education (SCOME) works on advancing and improving higher medical education. Its main goal is to create the best circumstances for every medical student around the world.




The local committee in Belgrade is the oldest and biggest in IFMSA-Serbia. It was founded in 1953; 2 years after the founding of IFMSA.

"Medical Youth" is an international, peer-reviewed, and scientific medical journal, with its headquarters at the School of Medicine, University of Belgrade. Founded in 1949 by some of our Faculty's best students, it is unequivocally the journal with the longest tradition in Southeastern Europe. 

In order to understand the pivotal role of "Medical Youth" in the development of our national scientific knowledge, one must consider the lack of major congresses, books, and original research paper transcripts in Southeastern Europe at the time of the journal's founding. It was then that the journal, led by the prodigal doctors of the last century, stepped forward as a source of relevant, up-to-date medical achievements. Furthermore, it encouraged young doctors-in-training to take on research projects, and themselves contribute to medicine.  

In its early years, the journal primarily dealt with publishing the results of student research papers, owing to the ideology of the professors at the time: "deepening students’ knowledge in the ways of science is going to play a tremendous part in their future careers in many ways, one of them being the fact that it is those who have published extensively during student days that will most likely rise to positions of professors themselves".  

The significance of "Medical Youth" to its colleagues is beautifully reflected in the words of the founder of the Institute of Oncology, Ksenofon Šahović: "it is a duty of each and every student to read ‘’Medical Youth’’, to cooperate in its activities, and publish in it, so that it can become the symbol of our pride and of our students’ aspirations’".  

To this day, "Medical Youth" has never ceased in its work. Today, in the year 2018, it is working on its 69th issue and, in addition to its original content, publishes mini-reviews (written by postgraduate students), and review articles (written by professors and assistant professors as the leading experts in their fields of work). In this way, "Medical Youth" continues to provide medical students with the necessary inspiration and motivation to sharpen their knowledge and get to the forefront of research.  

The editorial board of "Medical Youth" is comprised of professors of our Faculty who work hard to maintain the standards set by past generations, thus protecting the journal's reputation. The editorial board furthermore oversees the work of the editorial staff, which is subdivided into 3 major branches:  

  1. Peer-reviewing: the cornerstone of the journal's activity. In order to ensure a just and objective selection of articles to be published, it has always been important to maintain and properly execute all principles of the double-blind peer-reviewing method. The branch works to mediate a conduit of information between the author and the reviewer without them ever communicating directly. This is done primarily through the "Assistant" online platform, governed by the CEON organization. Furthermore, as the reviewer and the author cannot be from the same academic institution, the branch must communicate with professors from Schools of Medicine outside of Belgrade.  

  1. Public relations: a branch devoted to making "Medical Youth" known to Schools of Medicine across the country and beyond. Students of this branch are constantly negotiating and developing partnerships with foreign congresses and journals. They work on promoting the journal and making it known to others in hopes of them showing an interest and ultimately deciding to publish in it. The branch has been very successful in recent years by cooperating with more than 20 foreign congresses and journals. 

  1. Text wrapping: responsible for everything that makes its way to the readers' eyes. Members of this branch are engaged in the aesthetic aspects of the journal's volumes (cover page, text arrangement, figures, etc.). They tend to the integrity of the output from volume to volume, ensuring constant improvement of the journal so that it continues to glow in its brightest flame.  

It can be freely stated that "Medical Youth" has stayed true to its objectives and principles. Its goal, inherited by its predecessors, is a never-ending one: to educate future doctors, reinforce their critical opinions, and create experts unlike any others, by guiding them into the world of scientific research. It is the journal's mission to make itself available to not only students in Serbia, but students worldwide, and to become a part of the largest databases, such as PubMed and Web of Science.

The School of Medicine choir has thrilled audiences in Belgrade with its beautiful sound and diverse repertoire. Accompanied by musical instruments, their repertoire varies constantly, covering music from folk and spiritual styles to more popular songs from international charts and films. Through participation in faculty events and national competitions, students are challenged and inspired by their performances as a choir.  

Students with prior music experience are invited to audition on Wednesdays and Fridays in the graduates’ library at 17h.  

We hope you come to see all that our Faculty's choir has to offer! 






With over 60 years of history, hundreds of future and already established doctors, and dozens of medals, the Sports Community "Medicinar" is one of the most successful sports communities in Serbia. Today it numbers over 150 students in 9 sports disciplines: football, basketball, volleyball, handball, tennis, table tennis, swimming, cross-country running, and rowing, with gender-separated teams.  

For years now, the central and iconic cultural figure for medical athletes has been "Jarac", a place from where all marches on victories have originated, and where results were either celebrated or grieved upon. To this day, Jarac continues to house the trophies and recognitions achieved by our athletes. 

The main activities of the sports community are centered around university leagues, as well as preparations for the big sports events - Medicinijada and Euroijada. Traditional tournaments in futsal and basketball are also common events, organized within the Faculty itself. 

Looking back at our athletes' greatest achievements, it is important to mention our basketball team (1st decade of XXI century) that succeeded in bringing back the gold medal from four consecutive Eurosportland championships in Milano, as well as achieving an uninterrupted 7-year winning streak at "-jadas".  

Every sports category organizes annual tryouts, to which all interested students, with or without prior sports experience, are invited!

medical Circle


The student organization "Medical Circle" was founded in December 2021 on the initiative of three students in their final years of study. The organization has its headquarters at the Head Building of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Belgrade.


Medical Circle is a non-governmental and non-profit organization that achieves its goals in the field of medicine, medical sciences, and student organizations. The main goal of the organization is to unite under its auspices the students of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Belgrade who are interested in working on the promotion of health and education, by organizing various types of activities, such as interactive panels, seminars, workshops, actions of voluntary donation of blood, bone marrow, and many other events based on the Health Calendar and current issues, problems and innovations.


The vision of the Medical Circle is to be a link between youth and experience, i.e. eminent professors and experts from various fields in medicine or related sciences and students of all ages who want to improve and expand their knowledge. By connecting science enthusiasts, we create a "Circle" from which new ideas and innovations will be born, which could be implemented in the further development of medicine in the near or distant future.


In addition to the education of young doctors, our goal is the education of all those who want to find out and learn something new in the field of medicine. Our task and obligation is to influence the information of the general population, certain communities, families, and finally individuals about topics in medicine that are rarely discussed and topics that would significantly affect the improvement of public health.


It is important that, as students, we improve our knowledge and, as future doctors, we work to raise awareness of and spread opinions about the importance of leading a healthy life, regular medical check-ups, immunization, screening, a healthy environment, and many other topics.


For the Medical Circle,      

Aleksandar Đurić
