SOMS – Scientific Organisation of Medical Students – is a non-profit students’ association, founded in 1987 at Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest.
Our mission is to promote scientific inquiries and to put together a research-centered community among future doctors – so that they can reshape their environment and change the world for the better. We stand for the values that help a society grow: integrity, professionalism and constructive criticism.
SOMS has always been in a selective search for new members, accepting those medical students who are interested in pursuing research-related activities, through science communication lectures and publications, with high professional standards.
By promoting cutting-edge medical research among medical students, we wish to provide the means and opportunity for students to discuss science and medicine with each other, to discover the beauty of science and the power of knowledge. We encourage each other to have an active role in the academic life for the benefit of the whole medical community.
