EuroMeds Spring Assembly Printed Issue-

Call for contributions end in:









Dear EMSAi,

I am beyond excited to announce that the Editorial Team is welcoming the Spring Assembly 2019 article submissions for EuroMeds Magazine! We would love to feature your contributions on a printed out version of EuroMeds, on the 10th year of the Magazine.

The Spring Assembly Issue will be featuring the assembly’s compelling theme of Medical Migration & Medical Mobility.

In our upcoming issue, we would like to feature two topics that are highly relevant to healthcare professionals in this highly globalized political climate, Medical Migration and Medical Mobility. As globalisation moves forward, medical professionals have a greater chance for  mobility regarding their choice of country to work in. A higher income, better living or working conditions are just some of the many motivations which physicians choose to leave their country for.

However, the emigration of medical professionals negatively impacts the health care system in their respective countries of origin. This phenomenon is often called “brain drain”.For us future doctors these issues are of utmost importance. The trends outlined above will increasingly shape our professional environment. As we move on in our lives and careers we want to be able to benefit from the freedom of movement in more and more ways. To ensure this, we need to find ways to overcome the obstacles and difficulties arising from that freedom.

EuroMeds Spring Assembly 2019 issue will be welcoming all contributors across the globe to submit their articles to be featured in this very special printed publication.

These are the possible subtopics for Medical Migration & Medical Mobility that you may feature:

  • The difficulties migration brings about to healthcare professionals
  • Culture shock of practicing medicine abroad
  • Healthcare dynamics in an immigrant-friendly country
  • Medical employment opportunities in country that welcomes immigrants
  • Effects of cultural adaptation on the migrating physicians
  • Patient mobility: the reasons and end-results of patients going abroad for care in terms of linguistic and monetary reasons
  • e-Health and Medical Mobility
  • Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders)
  • Medical technology: robotic operations from abroad, what’s next? 

PS: Feel free to also pick topics that haven’t been listed above!
