Our History

The Brazilian International Congress of Medical Students – BRAINCOMS – 2018 is the fifth edition of this great and successful congress. The main theme for this year is “Creativity Enriching Medicine”. In this edition, we are expecting 400 medical students from all over the world, 200 research presentations and Keynote Lecturers from different renowned Universities. Aiming to make this event even more attractive, our committee has worked to develop more than 25 workshops, in which all of you will be able to put into practice your medical knowledge!


The congress was established in 2012 by students of the Escola Paulista de Medicina – Universidade Federal de São Paulo (EPM/UNIFESP). Since then, as it is nowadays, the Congress is entirely planned, built up and ran by and for medical students. Since the first edition, the Congress has received many foreigners students, focusing on the international flow of knowledge in the medical area. We have grown and last year we received representatives from 9 different countries from almost all continents and Brazilian states. This year, we aim to expand even more our international relevance, receiving medical students from even more countries from all over the world.

BRAINCOMS is a unique opportunity for you to include yourself in the international medical context by listening to amazing internationally acclaimed speakers, practicing and improving your skills at hands-on workshops, building up network with other medical students from everywhere, and much more! All this in an engaging atmosphere with smart people, sense of humor, outstanding scientific quality and – why not? – great food and social events! This congress has everything to add a lot to your personal and medical formation. You couldn’t spend these 3 days in a better way. You can’t waste this chance, don’t miss it!
