About IFMSA Exchanges

IFMSA runs two types of exchanges programs, professional and research exchanges, that are both endorsed by the World Federation of Medical Education (WFME), the World Organization of National Colleges, Academies and Academic Associations of General Practitioners/Family Physicians (WONCA), the Federation of European Neurosciences Societies (FENS), the European Society for Emergency Medicine (EuSEM), the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA), the International Pediatric Association (IPA) and the World Psychiatric Association (WPA).

Each year, more than 15,000 medical students embark on a journey to explore health care delivery and health systems in different cultural and social settings. This is achieved by providing a network of locally and internationally active students that globally facilitate access to research and clinical exchange projects, which usually last four weeks. Through our programming and opportunities, we aim to develop both culturally sensitive students and skilled researchers intent on shaping the world of science in the upcoming future. Our exchanges programs are key promoter of intercultural understanding and cooperation amongst medical students and health professionals, which much needed in our globalized world as IFMSA believes.

EXCHANGE UPDATE!!!! (11.18.2020)
  • Unfortunately due to campus closure and SGU remaining online for the unforseeable future, we have to cancel all 2021 exchanges. This news has been difficult and devastating for us to receive, but the safety of Grenadians, as well as incoming and outgoing students is our number one priority. We are hopeful to open applications for exchanges in late November 2021 for the 2022 season in June and July!
  • We will be posting other opportunities through International IFMSA that you can participate in; however, it will not be coordinated by IFMSA-Grenada and you will be liable for your own participation. We are so sorry and if you have any questions or concerns, please email
