Future doctors can make all the difference

Who we are

A conference for Medicine and Life Sciences' Students in Europe

The iMed Conference® is a grand project by Nova Medical School’s Students' Union, that is held in Lisbon at the beginning of every school year since 2009, addressed to the next generation of Life Science’s students. 

Through a formula created long ago and perfected throughout the years, each year we invite researchers to present what’s fresher and more relevant in the worldwide scientific panorama, bringing the most stirring out-of-the-box stories and inspiring life experiences.

Annually, we aim to inspire, to urge, to embrace the evidence-based science and medical practice.

It would never be possible without a dedicated Crew

The dedication and hard-work settled upon the spirit of every Organising Committee since the first edition leads to a constant quality and excellence demand. The goal is to exceed expectations, so that the edition that follows is always better than the previous. This is the ultimate wish from the OC of the iMed Conference® 9.0 Lisbon 2017 to our colleagues organising the 10th edition and I am sure we will not be disappointed and neither will you!

Filipa Rodrigues

President iMed 9.0

Being part of the Organizing Committee was an amazing worthy background that let me redefine my future as a person and doctor. Team members, speakers and participants met, skills improved, scientific knowledge shared and this immersive experience as a whole are lifelong. Above all, the iMed Conference’s goal is to drive our minds towards scientific innovation and closer to the change that every single one of us has the potential to make in the world- to inspire, to motivate and to embrace Evidence-Based Medicine.

Our President’s Message

Dear colleagues:

Allow me to introduce myself: my name is José Sobral Abrantes, I am the President of the 10th edition of the iMed Conference® OC, and student at Nova Medical School.

First of all, I would like to tell you our secret for reaching the 10th edition of the iMed Conference: being entirely organized by students and for students! That is our way to assure that we are on the edge of knowledge: filling the gaps between our scholar system and blowing your mind with the most relevant scientific panorama. Accordingly, we aim to provide the best scientific features, always keeping in mind the students' budgets, which is why we offer low fees and provide scholarships, either to your ideas or to your clinical knowledge.
This being said, we invite you to listen to stirring out-of-the-box stories and inspiring life experiences. Additionally, we make sure you can get a hands-on experience intended to complement your formation – with a wide variety of workshops to choose from, you can choose exactly what you were looking for! 

We invite you, furthermore, to partake in our competitions: if you are a clinical detective join Prof. Lisa Sanders (consultant in the TV Show House MD) in the Clinical Mind Competition and solve the exclusive and unpublished case she provides us; if you are an undergraduate, and do basic or translational research, submit your work to the Innovate Competition and if you want to join investigators in their research centres across Europe, with all expenses covered, join the Research Challenge.

Finally, if all of this doesn’t convince you: Let’s talk about Lisbon! It is no wonder why Lisbon is ranked as one of the most popular cities for business tourism. Portuguese people are keen on making you feel at home, and we love our country so much that we will try to show you everything. So whether it is at our lovely beaches, our sunny and breathtaking rooftops, where you can drink our renowned wine or at our tasty restaurants, we will make sure you have the time of your life! So, enjoy the city, the people, the culture and the gastronomy through our Social Programme and I can assure you this will be an experience you won’t forget. 

Did all of this information catch your eye? Join us and be one of the 800 participants that will be a part of this outstanding event from the 3rd October to 7th, at Teatro Camões. We’ll be expecting you!

In the name of the Organizing Committee,
José Sobral Abrantes,
President of the iMed Conference 10.0 OC.
