What is APRM?
The Regional Meetings (RM) take place every year in each IFMSA Region and are hosted by one National Member Organisation (NMO) from the respective region. Usually, the Asia-Pacific RM takes place in June/July, and are preceded by a pre-Regional Meeting, which are 3 days of training workshops on topics such as leadership development, medical education, and human rights advocacy.
APRM features sessions such as keynote lectures, training workshops, activities fair, and cultural events, where delegates engage in discussions on international issues related to healthcare, learn about each other’s initiatives, and display their own cultures. IFMSA’s emphasis on peer-to-peer training means most sessions are conceptualised, planned, and delivered by medical students. In addition, theme events are organised by the Organising Committee on a topic relevant to their own country, and renowned experts in the field are invited externally to exchange their insights with conference delegates from the Asia-Pacific region.
APRM was most recently held in Seoul in June 2018, with the theme "Mental Health". APRM 2017 was held in Tokyo, with the theme of “Healthcare in conflicts and emergencies: medical workers towards building peace.”

A brand new addition to APRM, the HIC is an opportunity for you to explore the ever-evolving field of health technology and design your own solution to promote health equity. In a team with diverse yet equally passionate individuals, you will participate in a 3-day bootcamp where you will design an innovative pitch under the guidance of your specifically matched mentors, and if you’re lucky enough, have a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to pitch at the “Golden Egg” of Hong Kong Science Park!
