Workshop Participation Form

Restrictions: 1st+ academic year

In this theoretical workshop several bioethical issues that concern the field of Medicine in recent years and throughout time will be discussed. The professors will receive questions and then direct questions back to the students in order to encourage reflection on contemporary issues of Bioethics that they will have to deal with in their professional lives.

1. Informed Consent
2. Modern skills for future doctors
3. Artificial intelligence in the field of health

In collaboration with: Society of Junior Doctors

The aim of this workshop is to familiarize participants with the basic principles for carrying out a high-quality systematic review with or without a meta-analysis. Meta-analysis is a study type which - when properly conducted- finds itself at the top of the pyramid of evidence used in evidence-based medicine. It will include a theoretical and a hands-on part.

Participants will be introduced to the following processes:
• Description of the rationale behind a review and how to explicitly state the purpose of a review.
• Formulation of the review question as per the PICOS (i.e., Population Intervention Comparator Outcomes Studies) framework;
• Description of the search strategy and conduction of unbiased study selection and data collection processes;
• Presentation of the results, graphically, using Forest plots;
• Assessment of the risk for bias of the studies included, of other sources of bias such as publication bias (also visually using Funnel plots) as well as of overall certainty of evidence;
• Discussion and interpretation of the results as well as drawing relevant conclusions and providing guidance for future research. Theoretical presentation will be followed by a practical hands-on experience. Their task will be to produce and explain a Forest plot and a Funnel plot on the given outcome, conducting in this way a meta-analysis on their own

This workshop aims to introduce our fellow medical students to the principles of engineering an electrical circuit to simulate the function of a medical device, through a demonstration of our own projects.Starting from an EMG-controlled muscle stimulation device (Symmyetry), to a DIY EEG that can be used to facilitate a Brain Computer Interface (BrainBoard), we’ll delve into the mechanics of creating devices that make clinical practice easier.

In collaboration with: MedHub Athens

MedHub Athens and IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology NTUA Chapter join forces to create a workshop aiming to introduce medical students to the basic principles of programming. In these 2 and half hours, participants will learn the steps needed to write a basic program in Python, will write a program of their own and lastly, they will get to know the basic applications of programming and Python in the Biomedical Engineering field through a showcase of interesting projects!

In collaboration with: Medscan Patras

During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to be trained on real cases of suspected child abuse & neglect (CAN) by medical students experienced in this field. This session consists of 2 parts: a main presentation, explaining the theoretical key points concerning CAN and, afterwards, practice in small groups on our cases. In the second part, you will be asked to practice as doctors on our trainers, who will be portraying parents bringing their child to the Emergency Department, take the medical history of the child and go through all the steps to reach a possible diagnosis for the child's condition: accident/disease, abuse or neglect. At last, through this process, you will learn how to properly manage the case of an abused or neglected child.

Restrictions: 5th year students or older
In collaboration with: Hellenic Urological Association and the European School of Urology

This unique workshop aims to provide an interactive and hands-on experience in basic skills of Urology for medical students.
The workshop consists of the following 4 stations:
• 3 stations on Basic laparoscopic skills - Get acquainted with basic Laparoscopic techniques in Urology
• 1 station on Scrotal examination models - Learn the anatomy of the area, practice palpating the scrotum and assess your findings regarding scrotal morphology

In collaboration with: University Clinic of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, General Hospital of Thessaloniki “G. Papanikolaou”

The aim of this workshop is to teach the undergraduate students the basic principles of diagnosis and treatment of the maxillofacial structures. The workshop will start with a presentation into the basic principles of diagnosis and treatment of maxillofacial fractures. Afterwards, students will be divided in three teams with one instructor and they will apply the basic principles of osteosynthesis in 3D printed skulls with pre-existing fractures.

Restrictions: 4th year student or older

This workshop provides an overview of echocardiography for physicians early in their careers. It covers the fundamentals of echocardiogram execution and interpretation, including 2D, M-mode, Doppler, and strain imaging. The workshop focuses on the practical knowledge and skills required to perform and read echocardiograms accurately and efficiently in a clinical setting.

Restrictions: 5th year student or older

This workshop provides hands-on training in laparoscopic suturing techniques. It covers suture materials, needles, and different types of stitches. The workshop focuses on developing skills such as tying secure knots, maintaining adequate tension, and suturing in confined spaces. Participants will have the opportunity to practice suturing on special laparoscopic models and the students with the best scores from each team will be given the opportunity to test their skills and on an advanced laparoscopic model that simulates real surgical conditions.

We are happy to announce that for the first time AMBOSS will participate in SCHMS as our educational partner! AMBOSS is an e-learning medical knowledge platform that has the goal to support students from their first day of medical school until the first years of clerkship. On Saturday at 15.15, the AMBOSS representatives will host a workshop about how to study medicine more interactively from 3D anatomy models to the training for real life scenarios with patients. A live quiz will occur at the end of the workshop, with special prizes for some lucky winners! Also, feel free to pass by their stand from May 5-7 at our main location, where you will receive AMBOSS branded-goodies and the possibility to ask any question you might have.
