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 preserving and protecting 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.


ThBosnian and Herzegovinian Medical Students’ Association (BoHeMSA) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization comprising medical students nationwide. Established in 1993, BoHeMSA serves as a platform for student cooperation, representation, and advocacy at national and international levels. Since 1995, BoHeMSA has been a proud member of the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA).

BoHeMSA operates through three interconnected local committees – LC Sarajevo, LC Tuzla, and LC Mostar – boasting a combined membership of over 400 students nationwide. These committees enjoy relative autonomy while aligning with BoHeMSA’s overarching goals and philosophy. Organized into six active working committees – SCOPE, SCORE, SCOPH, SCOME, SCORP, and SCORA – members collaborate on various projects under the guidance of local officers within each committee.
