The Standing Committee on Research Exchange (SCORE) seeks to give medical students across the world the opportu- nity to gain exposure to medi- cal training in other countries. All exchanges are initiated and coordinated entirely by medical student volunteers.
Every university is represented by a Local Officer on Research Exchange (LORE), who facilitates projects at the local level and arranges for the exchange students‘ preparations such like housing and boarding. Every exchange student is assigned a local contact person who serves as a guide, resource, and social liaison, the thing that strengthens the intercultural communication, understanding, and unity among medical students worldwide.
"The mission of SCORE is to offer future physicians an opportunity to experience research work and the di- versity of countries all over the world. This is achieved by providing a network of locally and internationally active students that globally facilitate access to research exchange projects. Through our programming and op- portunities, we aim to “develop both culturally sensitive students and skilled researchers intent on shaping the world of science in the upcoming future.”
