We are pleased to invite you to participate and share with your colleagues the announcement of the first International Journal of Medical Students (IJMS) ( World Conference of Medical Student Research ( to be held online on Nov 12th 2022.

Key information:

Location: Online at YouTube ( You can register now!

Deadline for abstract submissions: October 15th, 2022

Link for abstract submission instructions:


- Each accepted abstract will be assigned a specific Digital Object Identifier when published in the supplementary issue of our journal after the conference. This is something rare to find in most conferences, but we want to recognize the authors’ work and by doing so, each abstract will have higher visibility and impact.

- The first three abstracts that will be chosen by the jury will receive a special mention in our next editorial and a certificate, acknowledging their position. Moreover, we have decided to provide a fast-track editorial process, if the authors decide to submit the full article for publication in IJMS.

- During the conference, the audience will be able to scan a QR-code that will give them access to a scoring platform. Each abstract can be scored from one to three stars, and at the end of the conference, there will be a special mention for the abstract that will receive the highest number of stars. On the platform, the viewers can also send direct questions and requests for further explanation to the presenting author.


How many abstracts can one author submit?

There is no limit to the number of abstracts an author can submit. Please, note that the payment of the $10.00 fee ( is valid for just one submission. If you want to submit more than one abstract, you will have to pay a fee for each of them.

I am a member of the decision-making board of a student/medical

organization. Is it possible to start a collaboration with the conference?

The conference has sponsors and partner organizations ( Nevertheless, we are very happy to increase our collaborators. Please, email our Editor in Chief, Dr. Francisco J. Bonila-Escobar, at if interested.

Why should a medical student/early-career physician take part in this conference?

We strongly believe that this conference will be an amazing event that will bring people from all around the world to meet and share their work. Moreover, we can offer an international stage to master your ability to talk in public; and each abstract will be undergoing a peer-review process that can give you useful tips for your future works.

Thank you for your time and for sharing this initiative.
