The GA is finally coming to an end. I can’t believe how fast the march meeting went by. It was such a memorable experience. In the past few days, I have been attending SCOPE sessions every day. These sessions are an excellent opportunity to discover what other NEOs do differently in their NMOs. The information is very useful and I will be sure to make improvements in the IFMSA-Quebec SCOPE program based off of these sessions. Furthermore, during my SCOPE sessions, I learned the importance of basing the exchanges on outcomes and the impact that the exchanges have on SCOPE and SCORE, as well as how SCOPE exchanges are important to foster awareness on global health issues.
Besides, attending the SCOPE sessions, I also participated in the exchange fair with the NORE, Alexandra. The idea of this event is to promote the SCOPE and SCORE exchanges that IFMSA-Quebec offers by displaying promotional and patriotic items of Quebec at a booth and explaining to others the unique opportunities that we have to offer. This event is also a lot of fun because we have the chance to visit the booths of the other countries and learn more about their exchange programs, as well as be stamped from head to toe in the logos of each NMO.
At the activities fair from yesterday, Alexandra and I presented the pre-departure training (PDT) that we offer to the outgoings of the SCOPE and SCORE exchanges. This training was initially developed by SCOI, and then adapted to SCORE and SCOPE to meet the needs of these students leaving on exchange. From our delegation, the projects of INcommunity and BonBon BonDon were also presented.
