EAMSC 2023 Abstract Book

The East Asian Medical Students' Conference (EAMSC) is an annual conference hosted by various AMSA Chapters in Asia-Pacific and beyond. At its inception, it aimed to inspire delegates to become active in the amelioration of global healthcare problems through networking with other medical students from Asian Region. In the recent decades, it has expanded to involve delegates from all AMSA members allowing exchange of ideas, knowledge, and cultural understanding.

The EAMSC continues to inspire medical students to analyze global health issues more closely and to utilize the role of medical students in the promotion of public health. It challenges students to think beyond what is learnt at university through various academics, sociocultural, and community service activities which explore a nominated conference theme.

The 31st EAMSC conference was organized in Nepal as EAMSC 2018 Nepal with the theme of "Maternal and Neonatal Health". Medical students from countries around Asia and Asia-Pacific attended the program. Five years later, the Himalayan nation is all set to host the 36th EAMSC in its homeland as EAMSC 2023 Nepal (27th-31st January) with the theme of 'Mountain and Wilderness Medicine'. The COVID-19 pandemic may have had its repercussions but through this year's conference, we are ready to bounce back.

With home to highest peaks of the world, blessed with diverse culture, geography and magnificent wildlife, the theme perfectly fits our country. Rapidly evolving adventurous fields has brought up the potentially hazardous activities with it. Human activities in wild areas has increased globally in recent decade, leading to increased risk of injury and illness.
