Session #1: Institutions of the European Union

What are the main institutions in the EU, and how do they reach decisions? Find out in the first session of e-Policy 101. In this introductory meeting, you will meet other participants and become familiar with the goals and structure of this course. Be ready for an interactive learning experience!

Session #2: The Legislative System of the European Union

The legislative procedure of the European Union is a mystery to many; nevertheless, the EU can exert a significant influence on member states through policy making. Have you ever wondered whether a student organisation can get the chance to state its point of view in this process? Let’s discuss it together.

Session #3: Health Policy Basics

Although health policy has a great impact in the real life of physicians, medical students are often unsure of what areas it covers precisely. With this session, you will learn how health policies are developed and how to understand them effectively.

Session #4: How to write an EMSA Policy Statement

EMSA has developed a secret strategy to write the perfect policy statement. Would you like to know about it? Take part in the final session of e-Policy 101 to learn how to advocate for the topics you care about the most!
