KEMSA Medical Student Exchange Program

Exchange Program

A project founded by the newly founded subsidiary organization Kurdish European Medical Doctors Association (KEMDA) and in cooperation with the medical university of Suleimani.

The medical student exchange program is one of KEMSAs and KEMDAs most recent project which will take place from july - december 2016.
The main goal of this project is to promote practical medical experience and working opportunity in kurdistan, as well as to create a useful link for medical students in Europe and Kurdistan.
 The initiative was taken by Dr. Reband Ahmed (founder of KEMSA and KEMDA) and Dr. Lalo Norki (KEMSA superviser and KEMDA founder).
