The Standing Committee On Professional Exchange (SCOPE) was the first Standing Committee to be created within the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA), and forms its backbone. The student exchange scheme was set up in 1951 SCOPE, but the now-familiar common application form was not introduced until later, in1968. Starting from 1956, 11 countries participated in SCOPE exchanges; this number kept on growing as years passed and as IFMSA expanded, and in 2009, more than 650 Local Committee and 1200 Medical Faculty participated in the exchange program, sending over 9000 students to benefit from a clinical clerkship in 86 different countries.
