Students looking to participate in Rendez-Vous 2012 will be thrilled to note the exciting Student Stream of the conference. The Rendez-Vous Student Organizing Committee (RVSOC) recognizes the importance of tailoring the conference program to suit the interests of all student delegates. It is our hope that participants will come away from the conference with, not only a better understanding of health care globally, but also with new friendships that will last a lifetime. In doing so, this will facilitate the establishment of strong networks that form the building blocks of an international community concerned with provision of equal access to health care across the globe- a community based on creativity, passion and an understanding that there is power in a group of like-minded people.
