Leiden Medical Student Association (M.F.L.S.)

As a Medical or Biomedical student at Leiden University, you automatically become a member of the Leiden Medical Student Association. (M.F.L.S., or Medische Faculteit der Leidse Studenten). With more than 2500 members, the M.F.L.S. is one of the largest student associations in Leiden. Founded in 1912, it is also one of the oldest student associations in the Netherlands.

Most of the M.F.L.S. efforts are directed towards education. The M.F.L.S. promotes the interests of all of its members in the field of education. They achieve this by means of committees consisting of student-members, who represent their fellow students in various organizational levels of the LUMC.

Other main concerns of the M.F.L.S. are internationalization, organizing events for the student community and to operate the student bar named "HePatho".

Two members of the board also serve as consultants to the LIMSC committee.
