4 – 6 October 2018, Pécs / Hungary
The conference at Szentágothai Research Center and at the Medical School of University of Pécs aimed to attract members of European medical faculties, from deans to researchers, teachers and students. Community building and networking is a central mission of AMSE and represents a benefit to those who joined the conference. In the first two days, the sessions focused on the best practices for research teaching and introduced some prize winning students’ researches.
We could great 91 registered participants from 14 different WHO countries. During the sessions, following scientific topics were presented or discussed: student researcher’s presentations on medical issues, the best practices for research teaching, demonstrator activity at the Medical School, University of Pécs, integrating research in curriculum in other countries than Hungary, migration, health communication and “hard-to reach” communities.
We also had a poster visiting session where PhD. students competed for a free participation at the International Medical Postgraduate Conference in Hradec Kralove.
One of the offered workshops introduced the highly new trend of bio-printing and the other discussed good practice and strategies in international communication.
During our social events participants could visit the 3D Print Center, the Medi Skills Lab, and a World Heritage Site (Cella Septichora) where also dinner was provided. On the second day the dinner was offered in a traditional Hungarian “csárda” (restaurant) and wine tasting of the Villány wine region was also organized.
