Participants from the United Arab Emirates at Semmelweis University
They attended summer professional training programmes

Based on Memorandums of Understanding signed earlier, participants from the United Arab Emirates and Japan attended summer professional training programmes organized by Semmelweis University.

On the basis of the cooperation signed earlier this year, in April, 6 students of Gulf Medical University (United Arab Emirates) attended a summer training programme organized by Semmelweis University. During the 1-month summer training programme, students had the opportunity to learn more about the University Pharmacy Department of Pharmacy Administration at the Faculty of Pharmacy, as well as about the Department of Oral Diagnostics, the Department of Conservative Dentistry, the Department of Paediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, the Department of Periodontology, the Department of Prosthodontics and the Department of Oro-Maxillofacial Surgery and Stomatology at the Faculty of Dentistry. The students attended lectures and they had the opportunity to participate in the daily patient-care processes coordinated by Dr. Ágnes Mészáros and Dr. Fruzsina Németh at the two faculties. At the request of this year’s students, participating students in the future will have the chance to learn more about several professors’ daily work during their practice.

On the basis of the cooperation with the Japanese Society of Pathology signed on June 4, 2014, four Japanese pathologists participated in a one week long, English language summer course called “Post Mortem in Practice” organized by the 2nd Department of Pathology. The program provided an opportunity for Japanese professionals to extend their knowledge related to post mortem pathological diagnostics. Thanks to Dr. Tibor Glasz, the professional course is very well-organized. The Japanese pathologists, who have very few opportunities to carry out autopsies in Japan, appreciated the practice-oriented focus of the program. In the framework of the one week long course held between July 31 and August 5, 2017, the participants participated in histological and cytology consultations and had to prepare reports. The professional reputation of the training program is proven by the fact that 5 autopsies out of the 9 carried out by the participants during the course is recognized by the Japanese Society of Pathology at the Japanese pathology qualifying exam. The organizers also aimed at introducing Hungarian culture, therefore the Directorate of International Relations organized cultural programs, which were appreciated by the participants.

Paula Louw’s story about Szentendre

„As soon as you get off the train, leave the station and start wandering through the cobblestoned streets you can feel Szentendre’s laid-back atmosphere. The streets in the town are filled with brightly coloured buildings, historic churches, sculptures, cafés and interesting shops. One of the most iconic and unique sights of the town center are the large, colourful mismatched lamp shades strewn above the streets.”

One of our Campus Buddy volunteers, Paula Louw from South-Africa has written a wonderful review about this mediterranean-like city, Szentendre, which has many things to offer for travallers. This town has its own unique atmosphere as several folks lived here throughout history.
