Its main purpose is to improve society's vigilance and knowledge of public health, and improve medical students' awareness about public health related issues. For this reason, member of SCOPH should develop skills and knowledge such as organisation skills, teamwork, leadership, communication skill, time and self management.

Hello! First things first, so what is SCORE? SCORE or Standing Committee on Research Exchange is one of six standing committees of CIMSA, in accord with IFMSA which is also consisted of the same six standing committees. SCORE focuses on research and research-based exchange among medical students, especially among IFMSA’s members. SCORE provides the opportunity for medical students to do researches inside their country, as well as abroad through exchange.
So, why research? And better yet, why research exchange? Research holds a significant role in medical world. For examples, research is used to test new medications, new drugs, it’s used to determine the prevalence of a disease in a region or a country, to determine the epidemiology of a disease, etc. These information are very important to determine the right way to prevent diseases, to find new cure to diseases that can’t be cured before, and so on. These things won’t be possible without research. Meanwhile research exchange will give the opportunity to gain knowledge about disease or condition in different country, for each country has different conditions and specific diseases.
SCORE aims to enable medical students to learn the basic principles of research so they can do their own research, thus enriching their medical knowledge, and also to widen the horizons of medical students, providing opportunity for them to learn medicine from difference approach. SCORE also aims to create international network of medical students to promote intercultural communication and global friendship through research. So, if you’re interested in research, don’t hesitate, join the SCOREPUBLIC!

The International Day of Peace, which annually observed on 21st of September, is an important day to be remembered and celebrated, especially for peace enthusiasts such as SCORP members (scorpions). It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence.The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and people. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education. The Day can also be a mean to celebrate the importance of peace between people around the living environment. Without peace, the world will be in chaos and many people will live in anxiety, fear, hatred, and spite. Unfortunately, nowadays, peace seems to be harder to achieve and slowly be forgotten, especially by people who are egoistic. In order to keep this awareness, SCORP is providing a free 'shake hand' booth for CIMSA UPH members and also other UPH medical students to help campaigning the international peace day 2014. Shaking hands can be interpreted in many ways. However, globally, this gesture is a symbol of keeping peace between each other (if faced in a conflict). Here, the participants can also pray for the world's or nation's peace or just simply apologize to the people around them (e.g. family, friends, etc) by writing their wishes in a piece of paper and put it in the 'peace box' provided. In the end of this campaign, SCORP hopes that the booth will help in raising awareness among the participants of the importance of peace between humans and of course, in their own hearts.
