The organizing committee is providing various and interesting program, scientific, as well as social. The Congress which will traditionally take place in the city of Ohrid, will be an exceptional opportunity for students to present their research in various fields of medicine, enhance professional and social relations, contribute ideas among medical colleagues, and most importantly feast on the delicious Ohrid trout that is endemic to the nearby lake.
