EMSA Turin is a university association founded in 2015 in San Luigi Hospital. Our predecessors wanted to create a platform for medical student where everybody could find a friendly environment to create and run activities, workshops and lectures. 

At first, the Twinning Project was established and a few lectures were organized. Soon after, many felt the desire to offer more, although the growth of the Association proceeded slowly as our studies are time consuming. Nowadays the association is more structured and is divided into different pillars, each one focusing on a specific area of interest. 

Our actvities, workshops, and projects are open to all Medicine students. However, members of the Association get priority access. 

The Board of the Association is renovated once a year in spring. The elections are open to all members and everybody has the chance to step up and apply for a position.

I am always enthusiastic about new opportunities that come into my life, like this amazing project that aims to create a discussion at school focused on safe sex and preventing STDs. Besides my passion for Medicine, prevention, and research (which is why I am also part of the Effervescience Project), I love hiking, running, traveling and learning new languages. Art, photography, reading books and everything that has to do with dance and drama are also a huge part of my life. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you feel like being part of the team!
