25th Medical Olympics

Proud to announce the 25th Medical Olympics: it is time to test your knowledge in the only medical knowledge competition for students in Greece!

SCHMS’s Medical Olympics constitute a competition of knowledge and critical thinking, that covers the whole spectrum of the Medical Science field. The main goal is to point out and reward the students with the best performances, who possess the knowledge to outstand. The competition is open to students of the Biomedical Sciences field, worldwide. The Medical Olympics have been an integral part of the Scientific Congress of Hellenic Medical Students (SCHMS) for the last 24 years and this year we hope to host the updated, worth participating online version.

The participants will have to answer questions carefully selected by the Medical Olympics Scientific Committee, which includes faculty members of the School of Medicine, University of Ioannina. The questions are to cover a wide spectrum of information, while sorted by escalating difficulty, in order to point out the contestants’ basic, as well as advanced knowledge and critical thinking.

This year, the 25th Medical Olympics will take place online, via an online examination platform, on April 17th, 18:30 (GMT+2).

The Medical Olympics consist of two parts, which constitute separate competitions:

1. Preclinical Part: The Preclinical Medical Olympics include theoretical, multiple-choice questions based on basic biomedical sciences (Biochemistry, Biology, Anatomy, Histology etc.).

2. Clinical Part: The Clinical Medical Olympics include multiple-choice questions, based on clinical cases and knowledge of every pathological and surgical specialty.

These two competitions will take place at the same time, so interested parties will only be able to participate in one.

Who can participate?

  • The competition is open worldwide, to all undergraduate students from the Biomedical Sciences field, who have enrolled in the conference.
  • The members of the Organizing Committee of the Olympics, as well as any member of the 27th SCHMS Organizing Committee, who will be involved in any way in its organization, are not entitled to participate.

Special prizes will be awarded to the contestants with the highest score in each competition. The announcement of the results will take place during the 27th SCHMS Closing Ceremony.

Everyone in the Organizing Committee wishes you Good Luck!
