MSI 43

Dear IFMSA members,

I hope my email finds you well,

The 70th General Assembly, the Online March Meeting 2021 is slowly approaching. And as it has been a tradition for the past years, IFMSA publishes its official magazine – Medical Students International (MSI). 

The creation process of this magazine takes a lot of preparations that can be divided into 2 streams: Content editing, and content designing. 

And this is why I am extremely excited today to open the call for the team that will be the engine of  this process and make our next edition – MSI 43 – come to life! Therefore, I kindly invite you to carefully read this call as they are also some changes in this year’s teams’ composition.

Available positions:

(3) Content Editors:

Content Editors are people who will be responsible for reviewing articles that have been approved for publication to ensure that they meet the high standards we expect from an IFMSA publication. They will mostly be analyzing the articles’ semantics, ranging from its grammar, punctuation, spelling, all the way to ensuring the consistency of its quality. 

For this time, in order to ensure consistency of the image and the quality within both editions of the term, we will be calling for 2 content editors that will only work for MSI 43, and 1 content editor that will work for both MSI 43 and MSI 44.

(3) Content Designers:

Content Designers are people who will be responsible for designing the layout of the MSI. With the InDesign program, you will be in charge of designing the proofread articles and compiling it to the final document that we will send to print and publish online.
