(EN) Are medical schools teaching students the appropriate values for 21st century medicine? | Peter Dieter (PhD)

Classroom 51 (Egas Moniz Building)

The 21st century is bringing about many changes in lifestyles, culture and the environment. The medical profession is not what it used to be, and it requires new perspectives on professionalism, ethics, and technology. How can medical schools prepare students for this brave new world?



(PT) Business talks: entrepreneurship in Medicine | Isabel Azevedo (Nobox)

Classroom 48 (Egas Moniz Building)

Pushing the boundaries of innovation in the medical field can be a tricky situation. What is needed to successfully navigate the tumultuous waters of the business world and deliver novel ideas and solutions in healthcare?



(PT) The flip side of the coin: patients abusing doctors | Elsa Sousa (MD) 

Semiotics Institute (Classroom 10)

For better and for worse, we are often exposed to situations of abuse and negligence of patients by medical professionals. However, we don’t often hear about situations of psychological, verbal and even physical abuse against doctors and nurses. Do you have the stomach to face situations you might be forced to deal with in the future?



(PT) Africa as teaching grounds for great doctors | Emília Valadas (MD, PhD)

Medicine I University Clinic Amphitheatre (floor 2)

(PT) Should we teach for knowledge or for exams? | Joaquim Ferreira (MD, PhD)

Gastroenterology Universitary Clinic Amphitheatre (floor 2) 

The answer to this question may seem easy at first - however, its ramifications are widespread. The dichotomy of formative versus summative assessment, of feedback versus tests, of quality versus quantity is prevalent in medical education, and the challenge of integrating them harmoniously remains a constant. Can you solve this?



(PT) The art of clinical reasoning | Susana Fernandes (MD, PhD)

Prof. Dr. Morais David Amphitheatre (floor 1)

Clinical reasoning exists at a crossroads: methodical observation and data meet intuition and clinical experience. How can such a complex skill be taught, learned and used in a practical way?

(PT) Endgame: what should the students expect from the PNA and their medical school? | André Fernandes (MD)

Neurology University Clinic Amphitheatre (floor 7)

Only a few weeks away from the major paradigm shift that will be the PNA, we ask once again: what should medical schools be doing about the PNA? How and why should students and their faculties integrate this transformative assessment tool into their learning and curricula?


(ENG) You need to get this: threshold concepts in the medical field | Ray Land (PhD)

Classroom 51A (Egas Moniz Building)

A continuation of our morning lecture on threshold concepts, in this workshop you’ll be able to truly explore the depths of medical knowledge - the fundamental concepts of the world of medicine, without which you won’t be able to deeply learn these subjects. Come and transform your perceptions, or be lost in these alien ideas.
