The Organising Committee of EMSA-Budapest as well as the EMSA European Board are pleased to invite you to the 27th EMSA Autumn Assembly that will take place between the 2nd and 7th of September 2017 in Budapest (Hungary)!

The main theme of the event is Antimicrobial Resistance, an increasingly important topic on the European agenda. We welcome you to join our discussions on how this global challenge can be addressed by the European Medical Students. We will organise an engaging symposium, workshops, pillar sessions and much more.

During the plenary sessions, we will debate on policy statements, elect the new generation of the EMSA European Board 2017 – 2018 and decide on other motions.

We very much look forward to meeting with you and hope you will enjoy the Hungarian hospitality!
