MSOM is a student led and founded charity organisation. Our acronym stands for “medical students on a mission” and that is precisely the essence of our work. The organisation began with merely the desire to reach out to populations lacking adequate medical care and taking an initiative to change lives accessible to us. Our fundamental aims are to recruit patients from remote areas via primary care camps (We have done noteworthy work regarding hypertension, diabetes and ophthalmology in Bulgaria and Nepal) and refer them to secondary health care in specialised centres. This not only eliminates the neglect of various debilitating conditions people have unknowingly learnt to live with due to poverty, but also gives them an opportunity to improve their quality of life. We have an ever growing team of skilled students performing physical examinations and tests on visitors of our camps to a very high standard. We also hope to provide humanitarian aid at the time of need and natural disasters within the areas we reachable to us.
We are have a dedicated fund-raising team which regularly come up with creative ideas to help the community and to raise funds for such projects.
We organise a range of fundraising events from sport competitions to raffles to games’ night. All the money goes towards raising health awareness and medical supplies for outreach medical camps, nationally and overseas. Our mission is supported by sponsors and local businesses. We also collaborate with student lead organisations like ‘ACS’ (African Caribbean Society). It would not be possible without the help of volunteers, students and professors who help run and participate in these projects.

In 2018, MSOM expanded, opening up a branch in Sofia univeristy where the MSOM HQ is currently situated. By now, MSOM had conducted camps and expeditions not just in Bulgaria but to Nepal as well.
Now 2019, and a new branch has been established in Pleven. MSOM has never been so busy and the thrill and excitement of three branches are second to none. Camps to Sri Lanka and Nepal (again) have been conducted with the highest levels of enjoyment. We now look forward what 2020 has in store for us
2020 is coming soon but we already have a camp in Nigeria on the way so take a look at what Project Nigeria has in store
