Path of the Refugee


IFMSA-NL The Netherlands

General Description

this is a lecture/workshop that local committees can organize about the path of the refugee (from fleeying there home to getting to there destination), what they go through on the road and especially what kind of mental and physical effects this can have on their health. Often, they invite an (ex-) refugee to tell his/her story and a doctor who is ‘specialized’ in refugees health.

Area of Activity

Migrants’ Health and Rights


The aim of this project is to teach medical students about the things refugees go through (create more understanding) and specially the health problems that are more typical for refugees (as this is not taught in their basic medical curriculum).
