Listeners: If you don’t have a scientific project to present yet, don’t worry! You may attend the conference as a listener. In this case you will be able to attend the keynote lectures, as well as workshop activities, poster/oral presentations and last, but not least, social activities!
The registration fee will vary according to the period in which you are applying. So, hurry up in order to get better discounts and save more money.

Poster and Oral Presentations Guidelines
BRAINCOMS official language is English. We will receive students from all over the world and, to reinforce the internationalization of the conference, all activities (poster/oral presentations, keynote lectures, workshops) will be performed in ENGLISH.
BRAINCOMS is the Brazilian International Congress of Medical Students, a congress where undergraduate medical students, from all over the world, will be able to present their scientific projects, attend lectures, workshops, social activities and last, but not least, parties! All of it is meant to integrate the international student community. It is a great way of exchanging science and cultural knowledge.
The “EPM welcomes” program is an initiative from Escola Paulista de Medicina’s students to provide an accommodation for either foreign or brazilian students coming from other countries/states/cities, who are not willing to spend large amounts of money in hotels and have no other place to stay. This program allows BRAINCOMS participants to stay in an EPM student house during the Congress. For more information, please visit EPM Welcomes (Hosting Program).
The submission process applies only to students that intend to present their papers as a poster or oral presentation. The registration, on the other hand, refers to registering yourself to attend the congress. All participants, both listeners and presenters, must register, but only presenters will submit their papers.
BRAINCOMS will happen mainly at the premises of UNIFESP (Universidade Federal de São Paulo – Escola Paulista de Medicina). The Campus is located at the city of São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically at the neighborhood of Vila Clementino. Our meeting point adress is Rua Pedro de Toledo, 669.
To be eligible for BRAINCOMS, you have to be undergraduate medical student.
