Who we are

The Association of Latvian Medical Students (LaMSA) is a non-governmental student organization founded in 2000. It is managed and operated by the medical students themselves, advocating the interests of medical students, creating and participating in various projects involving public health, medical education and reproductive health issues.

What we do

Our main goals are to provide a high-quality supplement to formal medical education, to represent the interests of medical students and to improve students' cooperation both in Latvia and internationally. We organise events to educate prospective doctors and other interested people, as well as wider public. LaMSA acts in accordance with the goals of the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA), adapting these goals to the situation in Latvia.
