Standing Committee on Exchange (SCOE)
The Standing Committee on Exchange (SCOE) was founded in 2004. Throughout the years, we have provided exchange opportunities for both local and overseas medical students. Our worldwide exchange opportunities comprise of cultural, academic and social programs as well as clinical exposure. Multiple exchanges are organized every year and are facilitated through 2 main networks: the Standing Committee on Professional Exchange (SCOPE) and the Asian Medical Students’ Exchange Program (AMSEP).
Asian Medical Students’ Exchange Program (AMSEP) is a bilateral exchange program that offers pre-clinical students the opportunity to travel to other countries to experience a different medical curriculum as well as to gain a better understanding of alternate healthcare systems. AMSEP not only encompasses academic activities such as lectures, hospital visits and simulations, but also cultural pursuits such as city tours and sight-seeing. It provides medical students with the opportunity to meet like-minded peers and to form lifelong friendships with students from all over the world, fulfilling distinctly the AMSA International vision of ‘Knowledge, Action, and Friendship’.
In recent years AMSAHK have held multiple exchanges every year with countries such as Australia, UK, Singapore and Taiwan.

SCOPE Standing Committee on Professional Exchange
SCOPE is a clinical exchange programme under IFMSA that offers four-week overseas clerkships to medical students. Our past students have been to different countries like Germany, Lithuania, Romania, Israel, Sweden etc. Whilst on this programme, students will immerse themselves in the hosting country’s culture and healthcare system, fostering ties and cooperation between medical students and healthcare professionals internationally. This year, we have signed contracts with South Korea, Indonesia, Brazil and Czech Republic for professional exchanges that will be conducted during 2023-24. By conducting exchanges with international medical faculties, SCOPE is recognised as an effective platform for students to acquire greater knowledge of global health.
SCORE Standing Committee on Research Exchange
This year marks the establishment of the Standing Committee on Research Exchange (SCORE), and the inclusion in the international network of research exchanges.
SCORE is an international research exchange program for all medical students under the International Federation of Medical Students Association. Founded in 1991, the committee aims to provide students the opportunity to improve their research skills by conducting medical research in a foreign university. At present, SCORE has over 65 active committees worldwide and over 3000 research projects available.
We will be sending 8 students to Belgium, Canada, Poland, Egypt, Taiwan and Mexico in the coming summer. We have received support from the medical faculty of CUHK in accepting incoming students, and are also reaching out to the faculty of HKU for encouraging responses.
