SaMED is a creation of a union of enthusiastic, empowered and hard-working young people who are ready to change the medical future, but also brave enough to start from their community. Even though the story of SaMED has started as a dream of Bosnian and Herzegovinian medical students, this international event has shown that a vast number of young researchers around the globe can gather in one place and invest their best resources to create a trace that will lead the Love of Humanity.
Due to our well-known tradition of keeping high standards and due to our regular contributions to expanding the large international medical network, it is our greatest pleasure to invite you to SaMED 2021!

The Association of Students of the Faculty of Medicine in Sarajevo (ASMF) began in 2000 as a single representative body of all students at the Faculty of Medicine. Over the past several years, ASMF has proven to be a crucial factor in the preservation and protection of students’ rights and interests at the faculty. ASFM is non-profit, non-political, and non-governmental and is a full member of the Student Parliament of the University of Sarajevo, where students of our faculty have traditionally governed the health disciplines.
ASFM continues to foster a high level of democracy so that today ASFM consists of an equal number of delegates from each academic year, who make all decisions concerning the association.
The Medical Students’ Association in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BoHeMSA) is a non-governmental, non-profit student organization whose membership consists of students from faculties of medicine throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina. BoHeMSA actively encourages cooperation between students, promotes student exchange and representation, and serves medical students’ interests at both the national and the international level. BoHeMSA has more than 400 members, who participate in numerous projects concerning public health, humanitarian issues, reproductive health, medical education as well as facilitate scientific and professional exchange.
BoHeMSA is a full member of the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA), which is one of the largest student-run organizations in the world. IFMSA represents future doctors globally by providing a dynamic platform for personal and professional development.
InciSioN BiH is a national working group for Bosnia and Herzegovina, founded in May 2018, with the help of BoHeMSA, as a part of the International Student Surgical Network. It was established to make improvements in surgery, anesthesia, and obstetrics through education, research, and advocacy. Activities within InciSioN BiH are open to all medical students as well as young general practitioners and specialists in these fields. Following the current world trends devoted to global surgery, goals of this working group are to improve surgical practice in Bosnia and Herzegovina through local action, to enable medical students and young physicians to be engaged in modern directions of global surgery, anesthesia and obstetrics and to enable medical students and young doctors to establish contact and international cooperation with colleagues around the world, and to participate in international projects.
