EMSA directors did their best to prepare amazing pillar sessions which will be worthy of this legendary EMSA GA. This time many different EMSAis also had the chance to conduct some of the pillar sessions. Apart from the session leading, EMSAis had the greatest chance to exchange their ideas with their European fellows, put lots of input into their association by providing first class ideas and got involved in many fun processes 🙂
European Integration and Culture gave very precious session on “European Residency”. EMSAis were informed on different conditions of residency programs in Europe in a very enjoyable session. Apart from that striking one, Child Psychology and Sign Language sessions also collected one of the biggest audiences and best feed-backs during AA.
Medical Education started with a great introductory session to make EMSAis more knowledgeable about the basics of pillar. Then went on with our interprofessional collaboration efforts on the field and “Digital Literacy in Medical Education”.
Medical Ethics and Human Rights kept being the sexiest EMSA pillar after its “Transplantation of Ideas” session. Very interesting ideas from selling your organs! to different organ procurement policies have been talked during that session. Human rights was also a very crucial part of EMSA GA again. Third E&HR session was on Ethical Aspects on Cancer Palliation as having guest speaker from Helios Klinik Berlin-Buch, Prof. Dr. Michael Hünerbein.
Medical Science had its first pillar session on an interesting approach on success and failure. “Women in Science” session emphasized the medical gender research whereas learning about Hardy-Wineberg on family heritage and genetics during last session.
Public Health pillar talked about the “kitchen” of its field in Europe. Two amazing sessions on “Public Health planning and “Role of Medical Student in Public Health Sector” highlighted the importance of we medical students’ involvement in public health procedures. Another very fruitful session was on Tobacco Advocacy where our Alumni coordinator, Nick Schneider, was guest speaker.
