Medical Olympics

We are proud to announce the 27th Medical Olympics!

The Medical Olympics is a knowledge and critical thinking competition covering the entire spectrum of medical science. Students from all medical schools of Greece or abroad compete by answering questions of varying degrees of difficulty in order to highlight and reward the team with the best performance.

The participants will be invited to answer questions selected by the Scientific Committee of the Medical Olympics, which is made up of faculty members of the School of Medicine of the Democritus University of Thrace. The questions concern both basic knowledge and critical thinking of the contestants.
