Partij MFAS

We are a student party that has taken part in the elections at the Faculty of Medicine for several years now. Our core values are quality of education, freedom of choice and development, and an optimal studying environment. These past years we have worked hard to follow up on our three values with concrete actions to make sure the decisions made by the faculty are in the best interest of the students.
