Annual international MedTalks event was held at NWSMU

On 29 and 30 June, 2021 the annual international MedTalks (Medical Talks) event was held at NWSMU.

MedTalks is an international platform for discussion and exchange of ideas in the field of higher medical education and international activities. The event traditionally brings together partner universities and allows them to identify prospects for further cooperation, exchange experience, strengthen old contacts and develop new ones.

This year, the event took place online and brought together colleagues from Germany, China, Turkey, Bulgaria and Finland. The summer topic of MedTalks 2021 was the international activities of universities in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, we discussed the positive and negative aspects of organisational work, the suspension of academic mobility, the pros and cons of the online format and other problems that we and our colleagues have encountered during this period, as well as the ways of solving them.

The importance of this type of event is also that it helps to maintain international cooperation within closed borders and to make plans for the future.
