Dear colleagues,


We are glad to announce you that this year will take place the First Edition of the Inter-Medical School Physiology Quiz in the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Iuliu Hațieganu” Cluj-Napoca, Romania on 9th of May 2018.

We are honoured to have with us Dr. Cheng Hwee Ming, specialized in Teaching and Physiology Question-Based Learning at the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Inter-medical School Physiology Quiz (IMSPQ) was brought to life by Professor Dr. Cheng Hwee Ming in 2003, in University of Malaya with a small gathering of seven Malaysian medical schools. In the following years, Professor Cheng initiated the quiz in USA and many countries from Europe and Asia. The exponential growth of the IMSPQ as well as its impact on physiology education in more than 25 countries brought the event in Romania, too.

We think that you will be excited to hear that, the distinguished physiologist Walter F. Boron participated at the last edition of the quiz, so you can imagine its outstanding reputation.
