The IFMSA is opening the first call for International Assistants and Program Coordinators for the term 2019-2020!

International Teams (ITs) and Program Coordinators (PCs) are the pillars of the work of our Federation. It is only with ITs and PCs that we are able to implement new ideas, challenge the status quo and shape our Federation as a leading youth organization! With this call, we invite motivated IFMSA members from across the world, equipped with time, dedication, passion, and ideas to join us in the beautiful journey of the 2019-2020 term. 

In the call ( linked here) you can find the task descriptions for all positions, as well as the necessary requirements set by the Officials of the 2019-2020 term.

We would like to emphasize that within the call, as well as in the continuation of this message, you will find the exact procedure that needs to be respected in order to have a valid candidature. It is very important that candidates read these instructions carefully and respect them. Invalid candidatures will not be considered. Up until 24 hours before the deadline, EB Elect members will be reviewing candidatures that were received and inform candidates if they need to correct something. We, therefore, recommend that candidatures are sent earlier so that we can ensure that all candidates will be considered in the selection process.
