|India is a country which contains hundreds of medical colleges and
thousands of medical students graduating each year. A fair number of
students actively involve themselves in research at a local or national
or even international level. INFORMER, The Forum for Medical Students'
Research, India is a step towards bringing those interested in research
to a common platform.
INFORMER is an all India medical students' body aimed at advocacy and
promotion of research amongst undergraduate medical students and to
encourage them to present their research work at a national level by
means of the annual conference organized by the forum. It
is an institution comprising of a group of medical students who attempt
to keep the spirit of research alive among the student community.
INFORMER was formed in 2009 in response to there being a lack of an
advocate for undergraduate medical students in the country. Over the
past 3 years, we have diversified base of activities which now include
our annual flagship conference (Medicon), an online journal
club,collaborative research projects, a research project mentoring
forum, workshops which promote evidence-based medicine,medical quizzes,
case presentation conferences etc. Read more here.
