The first standing committee within IFMSA was the Standing Committee on Professional Exchange (SCOPE) in 1951.


SCOPE exchange program is a quality educational and cultural experience organized entirely by medical students with the help of their medical faculties.


The main purpose of the program is “to promote cultural understanding and co-operation amongst medical students and all health professionals, through the facilitation of international student exchanges.


 SCOPE aims to give all students the opportunity to learn about global health, and attains this partly by having its exchanges accredited by medical faculties across the world”.

You get to attend a 4 week clerkship, under a tutor, for a subject that you love dearly in your medical life, in around 40 countries from around the world. Please click here to see the countries and their details.

GoSCORP India 2019


GoSCORP India 2019 to us was a dream harboured since the day we realised how greatly it impacts lives and evoked an innate desire to strive for peace and fight for rights. Discussions, debates, workshops, sessions, volunteering activities, slum visits, a tour of the Gandhi ashram, health facilities, interaction with various sections of the society created an intrinsic desire to help, and the help starts with changing our way of life and extending them to people around us. We intricately wove our vibrant culture with the hustle-bustle of the ever so busy city life of India and embraced the serenity of the sea and the peace amongst the hills.

GoSCORP India 2019 ended with a family of SCORPions who have now begun their journey to carry the burning torch of change to all around to world.

GoSCORP India is a program which is designed to highlight the human rights issues in India. We aim to orient the participants with current women rights, refugee rights, LGBTQIA+ rights and climate change issues in India. We aim to equip the participants with the skills to understand and analyse the problems and come up with innovative solutions of their own. As future healthcare professionals and policy makers, this program can help them understand how such a vast country like India faces the challenge of handling a large population and makes policies to ensure human rights for all.
