Education on health issues for specific societal groups, either in the form of projects (set of tasks for a certain group over a fixed period of time), events (something notable that happens) or conferences (form meeting about ideas related to a particular topic, usually over several days).

General description:

Understanding the generalities , the framework , the structure and the principles of a committee is the first requirement of each member . So it’s necessary for each member of SCOME to be aware of the topics mentioned below ;

1)The international structure of SCOME and IFMSA

2)Principles of Activity enrollment and Activity report processes

3)SCOME focus areas (to design better and more beneficial activities)

It becomes more important when the target group is LOMEs because they are responsible of LC SCOME-Related activities , main idea producers and so the future of IMSA-Iran’s SCOME . Since IMSA-Iran was hibernated for two years , the new members of it are not so much aware of the topics mentioned above . This webinar which will be held by the Skype app is going to describe all the topic above and will make the participants fill a simulated pilot enrollment form so that when they want to enroll a real activity the process will be easier for them .
