  • Dear Colleagues,

    On behalf of the GulfThoracic 2020 Scientific Committee, I am delighted to welcome you to the Medical Students Forum 2020 (MSF2020) which is taking place at InterContinental - Dubai Festival City, UAE on 13-14 March 2020.

    The MSF2020 is coming this year as a continuation of the success of the two proceeding forums with a new vibrant and exciting program. Our program this year will cover important general and diagnostic topics. As the students are the real partners of the success of MSF2020, we have dedicated special sessions for short communication where they can present their research in different research themes.

    This track was developed to encourage medical and other health professions students to present their basic science, clinical, community based, or medical education research.

    I am pleased to re-welcome everyone to MSF2020 wishing you an enjoyable, motivational, and useful meeting.

    Thank you and best regards,
