Social Program
Our social programs are divided into regions and LCs, so each one of them will host a social program for the incomings they will be receiving in the same month. Also, we normally have two National Social Program, being one in July and the other in August, our fullest months of the year.
Special Remarks
Application Form
Deadline
16 WEEKS
Special Remarks
We have about 30 LC's eagerly waiting to receive students, with good Academic Quality and amazing Social Programs. As we receive a big amout of students each month, specially July and August, it is difficult to place everyone in their first option.

Therefore, the student must follow these instructions:
1. Student must choose three different projects.
2. Student must choose only one city from group A and only one city from group B.
(Ex.: ABC or ACC or BCC or CCC)

Group A: São Paulo, Campinas, Rio de Janeiro, Niterói, Florianopolis, Recife and Vitória. 

Group B: Brasília, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte and Porto Alegre.

Group C: All the others (Actives LCs in 2021): Vassouras, Pouso Alegre, Grande Dourados, Goiania, Viçosa, Anápolis and any other we activate after, that is neither in the group A nor in the group B.

AF's that don't match these statements will be sent back or placed based on the projects choices.

The places available in certain cities are very limited, so we can't always place in the desired city.

If you want to come in July:
You must send your AF and full COD until the first week of February, otherwise your AF will be sent back.

If you want to come in August:
You must send your AF and full COD until the March Meeting (first week of March), otherwise your AF will be sent back.

We do not guarantee you will be assigned to your desired cities or projects, since we have a huge amount of incomings every month, specially for July and August. But don't worry! All of our LCs and projects have a high academic quality and they are all safe, beaufitul and interesting cities spread across Brazil.

IN CASE YOU WANT TO BE ASSIGNED WITH SOMEONE:
Please, put the person's AF number on the Special Remarks as well. Although we do accept to host someone together, we do not guarantee this will happen, due to our LCs capacity and avaliability.

Please note that July and August are the fullest months and we have limited spots, so send your AF as soon as possible if your contract is not specific for these months but you still want to come during this period.

The standard documents are the basic documents that the students are asking for and the special documents are less important, as only some Local Committees ask for them. So it's mandatory to upload the standard documents, but not the special ones. (Students do it when asked for by the LEO/NEO.)
The upon arrival documents are hard copies documents that the students are requested to take with them in the host country.”

Special remarks
Please, in case you are national of a country that is obligated to have a Visa for entering Brazil, note that you need to ask for a TOURIST VISA and you must not show the Invitation Letter of IFMSA, otherwise they will reject your Tourist Visa and ask for you to apply for a Student Visa, which is really hard to get.

In case you need a Visa, please put on the Special Remarks of your AF (Aplication Form), plus write down all special documents that our NMO would need to provide you, in order to get the tourist VISA. We are not responsibles, in case your visa gets denied!

Special Remarks

We don't require any Hard Copy documents. They must all be uploaded to the database together with the Application Form (AF).

 

- Students usually stay with host families at Brazilian Medicine students's houses.

 

- Every student will have their Host Student and also a “godfather” or “godmother”, who will help with any issues and do social activities.

- Social programs are offered by all Local Committees (LCs). They're always enthusiastic to show you the best of our country, however, they do their job on voluntary basis, which means they also study and have other obligations. Thus the exchange student should be somewhat independent and not expect a 24 hour day care program.
