Kaunas International Medical Student Union (KIMSU) is a non-profit student organisation. At KIMSU, we are committed towards making sure that every student's voice is heard, regardless of the language they speak. Celebrating its fifth year of being, KIMSU has worked together with LSMU to create a multicultural platform for international students to unite diverse ideas.
At KIMSU, we focus on equality, education and entertainment for every international student that has made Kaunas their second home.
Our student organisation has seven different committees that focus on seven different goals: Academics, Charity, Entertainment, Science, Sports, Merchandise and Public Relations. We work together to create events such as conferences, parties, workshops, charity, sports tournaments and events to raise money for orphanages in Lithuania.

The academic committee of KIMSU provides students help with all upcoming problems/issues regarding their studies. Furthermore, it also helps establish a better study environment by collecting feed-back from the students to improve study conditions (ordering new books, recommend and implement new policies).
We currently work with the international office as well as the Lithuanian student body.

The K.I.M.S.U. Charity Department engages in various benevolent projects in and around Kaunas. Our fundraising events, as well as our student work force, enable us to support orphanages and schools for children with special needs, among others. Additionally, we take it upon ourselves to engage the international community in university life, by celebrating our numerous different cultural backgrounds in festivities such as the Annual International Food Festival. Of course, all profits benefit our charitable projects.

The AveVita committee ensures the publication of events that include the active participation of international students at LSMU in the University's newspaper Ave Vita. We cover projects organised and conducted by KIMSU such as workshops, conferences, sports tournaments and charity events. Photographs are always included with the corresponding article. We also encourage talented artists, poets and writers, both professional and amateur, by publishing their work in an 'Art's Corner'.

The merchandise committee is the newly formed section of KIMSU, which provide goods for different events throughout the year.
