OVERVIEW

The idea of IFMSA-Jo HU LC was ignited in the minds of a group of medical students at the Medical Faculty of the Hashemite University after they heard of the great reputation and work of the two other LCs, JUST and UJ. The idea became a passion, and this passion soon became a wonderful fruit of their labor that has been growing ever since.

The start was at the 2nd National General Assembly, were the members from IFMSA-Jo HU left their print during the days’ activities. Their hard work was even noticed and appreciated after their first ever campaign  “” was voted the third best campaign of the year.
