IFMSA members interested in receiving a certificate of involvement from the Dean of Students, must have completed a total minimum of 12 hours before the end of Term 5. At least, 8/12 hours must be from IFMSA specific events. The following is a list of approved activities that can count towards your hours. Due to the current COVID 19 pandemic, we have allowed local community service hours to count. However, 2 hours must be from IFMSA this term. Please email Natasha for approval of community service hours before you participate to ensure that they will be eligible to be counted.  


Please remember to report ALL hours on the hour submission tab on our website. You will only receive credit for reporting your own hours. In addition, if you need to check your total hours, email Natasha!

To get approval for hours or have any questions, please email Natasha Vo at

IFMSA specific hours: 

  • Any IFMSA event including GBM, volunteering at health fair, attending workshop, Teddy bear clinic, etc. 

  • Being involved on a committee or serving on executive board

  • EXCHANGES do NOT count!


Other hours: 

  • Volunteering at another organization's event that relates to IFMSA core focus (ie. PHSA campaigns, OSO beach day)​

  • Volunteering at local clinic, blood drive, health fair, health promotion events

Additional Considerations: 

  • Hours will not count if you are paid for your service!

  • Hours you are reporting must be DURING the term. We will not accept late or retrospective hours.
