In 2011 a couple of enthusiast and enterprising medical students came together and worked out a plan to establish a BeMSA-division in Hasselt. After presenting their idea to the University of Hasselt, the journey officially started. Since then BeMSA Hasselt has organised multiple projects, and some of them even became a yearly tradition.
SCOPH (Standing Committee on Public Health) was the first and most prominent pillar of our BeMSA-division, and still is. Our current projects consist of ‘Teddy Bear Hospital’, ‘Date your Doctor’ and ‘Heart for Life’.
Not only SCOPH has become an important aspect of our local community, but SCORA (Standing Committee on Sexual and Reproductive Health including HIV/AIDS) as well. Last year we organised ‘The Stigma Challenge’ and Sexual Healing’.
Since last year BeMSA Hasselt offers medical students to experience an internship abroad. Accordingly, SCORE is now also part of our division.
BeMSA is a relatively small community, which means our current board isn’t that extensive. It consists of a president, a vice-president, a treasurer, a PR manager, a secretary and a LORE. Furthermore, we have two project managers for each project.
