We offer a big range of different workshops at the 27th European Students’ Conference. All workshops which take place on the second conference day will represent various exciting medical activities and skills. Therefore we will organize a lot of ’hands-on-workshops’.


The workshops at the third conference day will deal with this year’s conference topic ’antimicrobial resistance’. Below you can see a list of the workshops which are going to take place at the 27th European Students’ Conference.


Workshops on 29th September 2016


[simnor_toggle icon=”chevron-down” heading=”Risk Literacy – can YOU tell the good stats from the bad?” text=”Risk literacy is an essential competence that every doctor and patient needs in order to make the best medical choices. The ability to easily interpret and transparently communicate, e.g., diagnostic test results or treatment effect sizes is critical to shared decision making. Unfortunately, the way in which medical risk information is presented is often confusing or even outright misleading. In this 3-hour workshop, Dr. Niklas Keller will provide participants with a number of simple mental tools that will enable you to better understand and communicate medical statistics and risks.” onload=”closed”] [simnor_toggle icon=”chevron-down” heading=”Introduction to mechanical thrombectomy in stroke-patients” text=”Stroke resulting from rupture or interruption of blood flow in brain vessels can lead to devastating consequences for patients, their families and society.  Steady progress has been achieved in the last 20 years in stroke treatment through better prevention, establishment of stroke care units and the use of clot-busting drugs (intravenous thrombolysis). In recent years interventional radiologists established a technique called “mechanical thrombectomy” in order to improve the treatment of stroke-patients with large clots. Dr. Bauknecht is an expert from the Charité in the field of interventional radiology and mechanical thrombectomy and will give you a quick introduction into this new technology. ” onload=”closed”] [simnor_toggle icon=”chevron-down” heading=”Labor Berlin – Microbiological diagnostic in times of antimictrobian resistance” text=”Join this workshop and get some behind-the-scene-insights in the work at Labor Berlin, Europe’s largest clinical microbiological lab. The uncritical use of antimicrobial drugs in outpatient and clinical medicine, and the use of antibiotics in animal husbandry have led to an exciting increase in antibiotic resistance, so that treatment options are very limited or even absent. The number of defense weakened patients (e.g. by age, tumor or immunosuppressive treatment) is steadily increasing and provides the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases constantly with new challenges. Labor Berlin plans to reduce the formation, selection and transfer of dangerous micro-organisms by an early and comprehensive diagnostic. Following the lines of Robert Koch, Emil von Behring, Paul Ehrlich, sowie Carl Friedländer und Hans Christian Gram the Department has given itself the mission to use the latest methods of nucleid acid and protein analysis for detection and characterization of infectious agents and, through that, to make an important contribution to the successful treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. ” onload=”closed”] [simnor_toggle icon=”chevron-down” heading=”Perfusion Technologists – by German Heart Institute Berlin” text=”Major advances in medicine like heart-lung machines make heart surgery possible.

We offer systematically classified and scientifically recognized teaching material in eight internal medicine disciplines on gender medicine!  The eLearning course eGender Medicine is an advanced training course with the aim to educate students to be able to use the sex and gender perspective in their later medical life as a doctor or scientist. The awareness of gender differences is nowadays accepted as a quality parameter in medicine. The term gender integrates behavioural, life style, environmental and stress factors as well as genetic variables and is not easily replaced by other parameters.

We offer an effective, flexible and modern learning format following a blended learning concept. This includes eLearning tools like learning texts, as well in eBook format, audiovisual materials with 30 videos, numerous PowerPoint graphics and quizzes for self-examination to arouse your curiosity. Another important part in this hands-on workshop is to facilitate conversation between students and give the opportunity for online-collaboration. We will ask you to solve a short task in small groups by using the discussion forum and WIKI tool.

At the end of the workshop you will receive a certificate of attendance.

You are invited to finalize the modules to learn more about gender medicine and achieve a certification for 48 “online working hours” for the next 12 weeks. ” onload=”closed”] [simnor_toggle icon=”chevron-down” heading=”Plasma Medicine – Star Trek-like technology heals chronic wounds and kills multiresistant bacteria” text=”Do you remember what your physics teacher back at school told you about the three fundamental states of matter: solid, liquid, gas? Well, forget about that, because there is a fourth one: plasma. It can be created by supplying energy to a gas, which leads to ionisation. If the temperature is kept under 40 degrees, skin-friendly, cold plasma is generated. Cold plasma has several positive features, including antimicrobial and tissue-healing effects, which can be used to cure even chronic wounds – that is beyond the limits of conservative treatments. But that’s not all – plasma also enhances the surface properties of nearly every medical product: for example, plasma-treated implants integrate within less than 3 months, catheters are less infection-prone and textiles provide controlled release of pharmaceuticals. So what exactly is plasma and how is it created? How is it used at the moment and what are prospective possibilities? To answer these questions and more, we have invited two outstanding researchers who have been awarded with numerous prizes for innovation and technology: Dr. Carsten Mahrenholz, CEO of COLDPLASMATECH, one of the most innovative start-ups in Germany, working in the field of plasma medicine, and Dr. Martin Polak, research program manager „bioactives surfaces”at INP Greifswald.

In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the depths and details of this challenge, based on the real-life example of novel antibiotic Teixobactin and a competing antihypertensive drug. The question is whether the growing problem of AMR or the number one cause of morbidity and mortality in the Global North should be prioritised. Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM), the world’s largest NGO campaigning for global and equal access to medicines, will share its expertise with you.” onload=”closed”] [simnor_toggle icon=”chevron-down” heading=”How to interact with patients’ relatives – a psychologist’s perspective” text=”As future healthcare professionals, a close interaction with numerous people is something we signed up for! But some of these conversations are quite challenging. The patient-professional interaction has been given more attention during health care training, due to its significance for the overall wellbeing of the patient. Nonetheless, communication with the relatives of patients is equally difficult and important and is not currently present in education. We would like to explore this topic in more depth with hands on exercises and new viewpoints from psychology and medicine. We will even work with tools created by LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® to help you take as much from this training as possible. So, if you want to become a better health care professional and learn some new techniques for your day to day interactions, join us in our training. ” onload=”closed”]
