Dear colleagues, dear students, dear students,

The faculty has completed another semester, an extended examination period and at the same time an admission procedure for next year. Summer and holidays are within reach, but many still have exams ahead of them, and even on hot days, work on projects and hospitals continues. So let me wish you a lot more strength in these weeks, students lucky in the exams and their teachers and all the employees strong nerves.

But above all, we also have weeks of rest. Enjoy a nice summer and time with your loved ones. I would like to thank you for your efforts so far, which we have overcome the difficult period of the past months.

Even these days, a number of faculty activities take place. Some postponed graduations took place and social activities at the faculty, university and medical societies increased. Prof. Stehlík (in May) and prof. Králičková (in June). The Association of Deans of Medical Faculties is to meet with the Minister of Health on the first day of July. On Tuesday, June 29, a press conference on the Albertov Campus will be held at the Rector's Office with the participation of government officials. We will be intensively preparing for the Campus in the autumn. Likewise, preparations for the Cooperatio program continue over the summer, with workplaces and scientific groups preparing for their involvement. There are also other large-scale scientific projects funded by European money, where the faculty should be significantly involved.

Even in the summer, we will work on the preparations for the new academic year. Unfortunately, we cannot say for sure at the moment how it will go. In any case, much of what we have learned in distance learning can be used in the future, not just in the next wave of covid-19. To link teaching, theoretical and practical knowledge and skills.

Let's keep our fingers crossed, but above all I want to assure you on behalf of the faculty that we are ready to work on the development of the faculty in the summer as well.

Have a beautiful summer!

Dear colleagues, dear students, dear students,

I would like to thank all those who took part in organizing the vaccination of our academics and now non-academic staff, but also the vaccination of most of our clinical students. In addition to the organizers at the faculty, I appreciate the approach of the VFN management, which enabled vaccinations beyond their responsibilities. Thanks to the vaccination of non-academic staff, who are in frequent contact with students, the faculty can thus better prepare for the upcoming examination period. I wish everyone involved good luck in it.

Last week, the Association of Deans of Medical Faculties met with the Minister of Health and his closest collaborators. We discussed issues of testing, vaccination (some measures are also outside the competence of the Ministry of Health) and the situation around IPVZ. The concrete result of our meeting is the determination of the conditions of the full-time form of the admission procedure to medical faculties, which can take place when 50% of the room capacity is filled and with a maximum number of 250 applicants in one room.

Another joint action of the deans of medical faculties, this time five faculties of Charles University, was the agreement on comments on the financing of the Faculty of Medicine and the distribution of money at the university (referred to as the so-called Principles). In general, the funding system is very complicated, involving the funding of joint university activities as well as redistribution between faculties, often on the basis of parameters that are not fully comparable between different types of faculties. The Deans would especially welcome transparency and a clear formulation of the basic principles of the distribution of financial contributions from the state budget. We have proposed some specific changes in the calculation of the contribution to the faculties. We also reminded of the important role of medics in helping health care and the higher demands of teaching at the Faculty of Medicine, which at the time of the covid took place in person with higher demands on its provision. The role of our senators in the AS UK, which approves the university budget, is also important. Maximum transparency of CU's internal funding should prevent funds from being redistributed to the detriment of medical schools.
Simplification and insight will ensure not only adequate solidarity, but also respect for the real financial demands of studying at medical faculties.

Dear colleagues, dear students,

Let me wish you a beautiful Easter. Take advantage of holidays and free days at least partially to relax and enjoy them with your loved ones. It is also a time when we can think about the further direction of our lives and above our goals. We still have challenging weeks and considerable tasks ahead of us, but I believe that we will be able to manage them and move the faculty in science and teaching a step further. I really appreciate the good atmosphere and collegiality that 1. LF UK prevail.

I cordially greet you,

Dean of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University prof. Martin Vokurka

Dear colleagues, dear students,

Our faculty received the B + mark in the evaluation of science at Charles University, which was the highest evaluation of all five medical faculties of Charles University. As a result, we should receive more institutional funding for science for this year. The key parameters in the evaluation of science in this report are excellent publications (published in a journal with a high IF, but even more precisely in the 1st decile or quartile in the field - D1, Q1), which were created directly at the workplace of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University. In connection with the preparation of the new Cooperatio institutional funding program for science, we consider these parameters to be essential.

Thanks to good cooperation with the General Hospital, vaccination of teachers and medics in clinical years should continue this week. Testing at the faculty is also going well, in addition to self-testing, in cooperation with prof. Foltán and VFN set up a test center directly in Kateřinská. Many thanks to all those who help with these events, at the faculty and in the hospital.

Last week, the Simulation Center at the Institute of Physiology taught pathophysiology, cardiology and intensive care medicine. Here, too, they pilot students teach surgery in English in the 6th year. Students practice a number of procedures important for basic surgical skills. Over the weekend, they organized advanced ALS (advanced life support) courses in the SIM center. In the next year and in the following years, the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University will significantly expand the simulation teaching, which was also supported by the Dean's Board.

For students who work in the hospital as volunteers or on the basis of work duties, there is also the possibility of obtaining psychological support. Among other things, podcasts of the Department of Palliative Medicine or direct contact to their experts can be used. More on our Facebook.

The government has approved the work obligation of students in hospitals

The duty of duty applies to the fourth and fifth year of university studies in general medicine. It also applies to all grades (except for the last years Bc. and Mgr.) of universities and colleges that are preparing for the non-medical medical profession. The government measures can be found here

The deans of medical faculties within the association repeatedly opposed the compulsory use of medical students (current ADLF opinion here:

The Minister of Health Jan Blatný (for YES) previously said that the work obligation will not apply to first- and sixth-year-old medics. Blatný added that the placement of students in hospitals should be set so as to affect their teaching as little as possible. The 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University takes note of the government's decision and will respond to the decision by adjusting the teaching.

As for the obligation to test, it is not yet clear to what extent this applies to the faculty. We will continue to monitor the situation and update the information.

Please read below the statement of the Dean of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, prof. Martin Vokurka.

Dear colleagues, dear students,

The government has decided to address the difficult epidemic situation by reintroducing duty. The deans of medical faculties have repeatedly expressed their interest in the quality education of future physicians as a priority, however, today the government has decided otherwise. At the last minute, we tried to correct the decision, which was largely successful. We called for the vaccination of professional students, their use in accordance with their qualifications and the exclusion of the profession of those who are already helping or working elsewhere as volunteers. We also pointed out again the importance of study for the future of our healthcare system. It is certainly a good idea to take into account the factors that led to the situation and the necessity of the profession, which again disrupt your studies, however, in addition to justified outrage, the awareness of the responsibilities that people in health care have at the moment must prevail. They have been making great sacrifices for many months and often work on the edge of their strength. You go to help them and the sick.

In the coming days, we will see the concrete effects of the decision. The faculty will proceed in the field of teaching so that, despite the work obligation, it is possible to adequately continue the study, respectively. adjust teaching so that the impact within the current academic year is manageable. We will prepare specific measures in the near future according to the actual involvement of students and we will discuss it with students as well.

At the same time, I would like to thank again all those who help or will help our healthcare system again. We are ready to support you and do not hesitate to contact us if you face difficulties or just greater uncertainties in this regard.

Dear colleagues, students,

Last week, the crisis staff of the faculty met, which dealt with the epidemic situation, teaching and the possibilities of vaccination and testing. He emphasized the importance of the relevant hygiene rules, which I therefore urge you to follow.

Charles University has published the material Hybrid Spring, which contains general rules, instructions and recommendations for teaching teaching at faculties. I recommend all teachers (it is mostly intended for them) to get acquainted with it. The teaching rules will be updated before the start of the summer semester.

For beginning researchers, we are preparing the next year of the Student Scientific Conference, where it is already possible to submit abstracts. The date of the delivery to the form, which is newly bilingual this year, is March 19, 2021.

On Friday, the director of VFN prof. Feltl. We would like cooperation in the teaching of (not only) clinical disciplines to continue in this area. In addition to simulations, the institute is also a place of very intensive translational research in the field of the cardiovascular system and cooperation with II. The internal clinic of the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University and the General Hospital, as well as teams from Na Homolce Hospital or abroad.

These things remind us that in addition to covid, we must think about the development of the faculty and its future in a broader context. And science certainly plays a key role in that. In addition, writing articles, preparing projects and submitting grants, which is approaching, can help to overcome some of the difficulties of this time by moving forward.

Dear colleagues, students,

In recent weeks, I have tried to bring rather positive things in my texts, but there are moments that defy it. Last week, Professor Přemysl Strejc, head emeritus of the Institute of Forensic Medicine of the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and the General Hospital, the former and long-term chairman of the Academic Senate of our faculty, left us. The current pandemic has thus again chosen the highest tax at our faculty. I knew the professor as a member of the Dean's Board, where he sat for many years. Always kind, helpful and consistent. Several times I had the opportunity to talk to him more personally and we discussed things around art, literature, music (in many ways I was just a grateful listener). And so I can only regret not having experienced such moments. Fortunately, apart from regret, a beautiful memory remains.

At the same time, such meetings are those that, in addition to our duties, create a magical environment for our faculty. In addition to our work and study responsibilities, we are also people with many interests and we can have a lot in this as well.

We all now suffer from a lack of contacts. And so let's say that when the situation finally allows, we will use this space and time for joint meetings.

At the moment I wish you good health…

Dean of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University prof. Martin Vokurka

Dear colleagues, students,

Several pleasant events took place last week. In fact, it started last Friday by handing over a check to Medicinaulici. The work of our medics in this area is very much needed. I am glad that they are participating in it and that students and the faculty were able to contribute to them even at this problematic time.

On Monday, January 11, he was officially inaugurated as the head of the Surgical Clinic of the Bulovka University Hospital (yes, from 1 January 2021 it is again a university hospital) doc. MUDr. René Vobořil, Ph.D. On that occasion, I had a nice opportunity to see, accompanied by the director Mgr. Jan Kvaček and our other two workplaces - Gynecological and Obstetrics and the Institute of Radiation Oncology. In the spring I look forward to visiting the rest. FNB is an important teaching base and I believe that the cooperation will continue to develop.

On Wednesday, January 13, the Department of Palliative Medicine of the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University and the General Hospital was officially launched. Palliative will become an important part of teaching from the beginning of studies at the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, scientific activity in this field will also develop, and I am therefore very glad that this field also becomes independent. The official opening was attended by the director of the General Hospital prof. Feltl, the event also included three greetings from foreign collaborators of the new clinic.

On Friday, January 15, the director and I again thanked the medics at the Na Bojišti collection center. Students dedicate their free time and help absolutely professionally, I am proud of them.

A meeting with the heads or representatives for the teaching of surgical disciplines also took place on Friday. The topic was the development of teaching, practical skills, the use of the new Amboss application and a fairly lively discussion, for example, on the planned changes to the logbook and the role of simulation teaching. Similar meetings have already taken place with internal disciplines and more will be prepared.

Dear colleagues, students,

An Open day took place this weekend. As the current conditions do not allow us to welcome those interested in studying at the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University in person, this year the faculty has prepared an online form that will introduce applicants to studying with us from the safety of remote access. On the faculty website, Facebook and instagram, from Saturday, January 9, 2021, in addition to the introductory lecture and live broadcast of answering questions, there are also a number of videos showing all our study programs, teaching some disciplines, and a virtual tour of some interesting teaching spaces. In Saturday alone, 2,947 people visited the Open Day website. The total view of the faculty website on that day was 17,626 people. Our videos on the YouTube channel of the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University were seen by 3.9 thousand followers on Saturday.

Progress program ends at Charles University in 2021, and a new system of institutional funding for science is being prepared at the university this year. The current Progress will be replaced by the Cooperatio program, which is to be professional and interfaculty. The individual components of the program are now being prepared and discussed, as are their coordinators. In the management of the faculty, we deal with the possibilities of further development of science, also in connection with the international evaluation of Charles University and faculties and in relation to the new program. We are also preparing a major award for excellent scientific results, support for their publication. We will strive for greater support in the preparation of grants, support for the organization of postgraduate studies. Subjects that would support scientific activities and scientific thinking, even for undergraduate students, are and will be created.

Dear colleagues, dear students,

The year that was undoubtedly extraordinary is coming to an end. In the bad - the onset of the covid-19 pandemic with many consequences, but also in the good - the ability of experts to organize research and vaccine production, seeking treatment and international cooperation.

However, there is not much time for a big balance. The epidemic situation is deteriorating again these days. Forecasts for January are not favorable. There may be a filling of hospitals, a shortage of staff and there is talk again of the help of medics, so far on a voluntary basis. I believe that, if necessary, many of the students will be involved in hospital work again. We are in contact with the management of the General University Hospital and our other workplaces. In the same way, we are again ready to continue teaching and its organization so that those who help can manage the situation to the maximum. We know that it is not always easy. But we also know that we are able to deal with difficulties. Please follow the current information. Things can change quickly. But we're all probably used to that.

Vaccination against covid-19 also started in our country a few days ago. The first benefits were administered to hospital staff, including the General Hospital. Behind everything are specific people who had to take a lot of things into their own hands in order for everything to work. Much credit goes to the Institute of Immunology and Microbiology of the 1st Medical Faculty of Charles University and the General Hospital. In addition to vaccination, this institute and its staff have been significantly helping since this spring with the diagnosis of tested samples from sampling points in Bojiště, Albertov and Biocev.

Some medics working in various departments were also vaccinated. I would like vaccination to be available to students. Yes, young people are usually mild, but students move around in health facilities and are in contact with patients.

Vaccination would also be welcomed by many heads of clinical workplaces with regard to full-time teaching. In the future, teachers from theoretical institutes should also be vaccinated, at least those for whom the disease would pose a greater risk. The Faculty does not have the possibility to vaccinate. At the moment, benefits are going to hospitals and vaccinating their staff will also take some time. However, I will try to make the possibility of vaccination for us, as well as to have enough information about the whole issue.

In conclusion, I would like to wish you all a beautiful and happy New Year and I look forward to our meeting.

Dean of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University prof. MUDr. Martin Vokurka, CSc.

Dear colleagues, dear students,

in the coming days, holidays, Christmas and New Year's celebrations await us. For doctors and healthcare professionals, these are not always days off, especially at this time, but they are nevertheless extraordinary days.

For most of us, it is a period of rest that we spend with our loved ones, and it is a time when we can reflect on the elapsed time and think about what awaits us. We have all faced an emergency. We had to sacrifice something and we managed to get something.

Despite the lack of part of the teaching, the involvement of students in the hospital was very useful and many of them learned things that would really suit them. Within a few days, the faculty operatively created an optional subject focused on nursing skills, while cooperating with the General Hospital and its nurses; interest in this subject among medics was great and moved to higher grades. An amendment to the law regulating the competencies of medics has been enforced - after eight months, they will now correspond to the competencies of a practical nurse (already approved by both chambers of the Parliament of the Czech Republic).

From January 1, the Department of Palliative Medicine will be established and the teaching of a comprehensive approach to patients will be gradually expanded to all grades. The system of grade teachers and senior grade teachers has proved very useful. We were able to react much faster and more effectively in a rapidly changing situation. Teachers showed great flexibility in the further implementation of distance learning, the faculty tried to support them in the field of IT. Cooperation with VFN was very supportive in this and other areas. Most clinics and theoretical institutes, as far as possible, held at least partially full-time teaching, because medical disciplines have a purely practical nature. Other teaching hospitals were also very cooperative in teaching.

Despite all the difficulties, scientific activity has not ceased, and what is very valuable, professional papers have been published and patents filed relating to the research, diagnosis and treatment of covid-19. The faculty was involved in testing this disease (many thanks to the Institute of Immunology and Microbiology and also to laboratories within Biocev). Postgraduate studies, defenses and the activities of the Scientific Council took place. There were administrative departments of the dean's office, the operation of which is necessary for the activities of the faculty. There is a crisis staff at the faculty, which regularly evaluates the situation. Last week, together with representatives of other medical faculties of Charles University, we emphasized the importance of vaccination against covid-19.

Unfortunately, a number of events at which we met could not or will not be able to take place. Number one at the start, graduation, golden graduation, alumni meeting and unfortunately not even the Medics Ball. The open day will take place remotely. Nevertheless, we tried to bring the faculty closer to each other, both externally.

Many tasks await us next year, in addition to solving the current situation, we will increasingly focus on the further development of the faculty.

Therefore, I would like to really thank everyone for their great effort and initiative and wish you the most beautiful Christmas. We cannot always be all together, so let us be even more together in our hearts. It is an honor and a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to another year together. I believe that we will be able to meet more personally in it. Good luck and health, a beautiful Christmas and a happy new year!

Dear colleagues, dear students,

A few days ago, the Association of Deans of the Medical Faculties of the Czech Republic asked Minister of Health Blatný to abolish the work duties of medics. The government of the Czech Republic approved this request on Monday, December 7, 2020. From Thursday10. 12. By 2020, students will no longer be called upon to help, even though their voluntary help in hospitals, according to our information, has not yet subsided and according to the current epidemic situation, they will probably still be needed in hospitals.

Learning, having full-time teaching - and working in hospitals, is challenging. It inspires respect, but it cannot be disguised that challenging tasks, complex situations are what move us forward. I feel obliged to facilitate some things in teaching, in its replacement, but at the same time I am convinced that with such students it is possible to create a great faculty environment together and that both can do it. And he won't get lost in life. Because it's not about organizing relief or reimbursement, it's about our commitment and belief that what we do makes sense. And that we can do it.

Two days ago, I received an e-mail from the master Ludmila Maffei Svobodová, who teaches at our Institute of Biophysics and Informatics and at the same time, as a former nurse, voluntarily helps at IV. internal medicine clinic. She wrote to me: "Our students are incredibly hardworking, empathetic and willing to help with anything and responsible." Like her, we "are extremely pleased to have such students, promising future and certainly excellent doctors." The whole ICU department at IV. internally he is satisfied with their work and thanks them a lot. This is just one story, one compliment from many. You can read about the further work of medics in the next magazine Jednička.

In the near future, I expect negotiations and perhaps also the approval of greater competencies for medical students. I believe that with such students, moving to greater independence is a good decision.

Dear colleagues, dear students,

Advent begins. A time of anticipation, pleasant restlessness, lighting of Christmas trees. The candy begins to smell - vanilla, nuts, cinnamon ... We think of our loved ones to make them happy. Usually such an introduction is followed by a note that this year is different. Cannot be gathered, a lot of action is canceled, even faculty. The more happy we should be from meetings, such as casual or everyday ones, the more we should enjoy them more. So let's give more intensity to everything.

At the faculty, we have switched to a more lenient teaching regime - we are still ready to help students who still work in hospitals to cope with both. Although distance learning has found its place and I think that in most cases we have managed it, let's not forget that medicine and medical disciplines are interactive, human, in addition to skills also play a direct word, touch, smile. Let us strictly observe hygienic measures, but in our hearts we will be much closer at this time.

Advent does not mean that we do not have much work to do until the end of the year. There is more to the effort. So I wish you not to relax in it, but at the same time to enjoy the coming days as much as possible.

Dean of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University doc. Martin Vokurka

Dear colleagues, dear students,

The last week we celebrated November 17th. At the Institute of Physiology, a bust of prof. Albert, which gave its name not only to the street, but also to the entire area where many of our institutes and clinics are located, was revealed. He died 120 years ago. He was a great patron of Czech culture and education and advocated teaching in the Czech language. Although these events, if we take into account the year 1939, are always divided by at least one generation, they nevertheless indicate a great closeness of thought, which is the essence of the academic world and is passed between the generations. But so does the nearness of good and worse or even very bad. And because nothing is taken for granted, it will always depend on us and our actions.

Of a little closer - on Wednesday, November 18, I attended a meeting of the Medical Committee of the Parliament of the Czech Republic with some other deans of medical faculties. We declared our interest in ensuring that medics have greater competence during their studies. The committee, which includes a number of MEPs, has adopted this initiative. Further negotiations continue at the Ministry of Health, in addition to the Association of Deans of Medical Faculties, the Rector of Charles University also participates. We are certainly waiting for further negotiations and possibly work on the adjustment of teaching, so that we can contribute to a greater practical experience of future doctors. I also talked about it with colleagues and nurses during a meeting at Coronary Unit II. Internal clinics of our faculty and VFN. 11 medics are working on it and they greatly appreciate their contribution there. Both the local doctors and the hospital management emphasize that long-term cooperation and the involvement of medics is important, they will also gain direct experience and skills. It was a very nice meeting and I very much appreciate the activities of those who, despite their hard work in caring for the sick, take teaching as a crucial task.

Epidemic developments give reason for at least a slight optimism. The number of students in teaching is increasing and thus the renewal of full-time practical teaching in some subjects, which had to be interrupted some time ago, will be renewed. Let's hope the trend continues like this, but let's not forget hygiene measures and mutual consideration!

Thanks to everyone who believes that what we do at the faculty and in the hospital makes sense!

Dear colleagues and students,

Elections to the Academic Senate of Charles University (AS UK) will take place on 24 and 25 November. This is a formal sentence that you can hear or read – but as always, there is much more behind it. However, it is necessary to ask a few questions – do I know who is a candidate and what is her/his program (both can be found only a "short distance" from this text on our website) – do I even know what AS UK does, what can decide? Do I know how (electronically this year) to vote? Is it worth participating? I would venture to say YES. Definitely.

The Senate will elect a new rector next year. That is really important! It also decides on many common issues concerning the University. For example, the budget, strategic goals. Do you feel it as far from us? That one vote or our Faculty four votes will not decide anything? One vote is never the majority, but it is an expression of the will and responsibility of everyone to participate in creating the academic environment and its future. And I believe that senators who will be elected with a really strong mandate, senators with many voters, will be well aware of this and will represent their views and interests well and with full effort.

That is why I ask all of you to think about the elections this week and participate on 24/25 November! Thank you and I wish us all the best representatives in AS UK.

Dear students, colleagues,

cooperation with hospitals is very important for the faculty. In the Dean's Board, prof. Jan Bělohlávek (for VFN) and prof. Martina Vašáková (for other hospitals). The representation of the VFN management in the Dean's Board and the Scientific Council as well as our joint regular meetings are also important.

Together with the General University Hospital, we are preparing the establishment of the Department of Palliative Medicine from January 2021. He has been working in the hospital for several years under the leadership of MUDr. Kateřina Rusinová, Ph.D., a palliative team that provides this care within individual clinics, participates in teaching and scientific activities. Palliative care is not just the so-called "final" care, it is a comprehensive approach to many long-term diseases, not just malignancies. Therefore, I am very glad that this care will be further intensively developed at the faculty and at the General Hospital and that we will be the first medical faculty in the Czech Republic with such an independent workplace. The Institute of Scientific Information will also become a joint workplace, which will enable the further development of not only library services equally to workplaces and employees of the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and the General Hospital.

Together with VFN, we started to solve the area of ​​IT, among other things, in cooperation, the first new approaches to Eduroam in the hospital are created. And a number of great nurses from the General Hospital also participate in our new optional subject Nursing in Simulations. We also cooperate in the issue of involving medics in helping hospitals. And negotiations are continuing on other options…, including with other hospitals where we have our teaching bases.

Thanks to everyone who contributes to good cooperation!

Dear students, colleagues,

I really appreciate that our students find time and volunteer even in this difficult situation. Their efforts and enthusiasm show that they do not lack the ability to overcome, to think of others and to act in that spirit. I also appreciate the work of those who will be called by the mayor or governors according to their place of permanent residence. I am convinced that all of them will be not only capable professionals, but also sensitive and considerate doctors and health professionals.

At the faculty, we also try to work so that, despite this situation, studies can continue and that it is possible to partially recognize help in hospitals and partially replace it later. It would be a bad reward for students if they paid for it with poor professional training. A complete novelty are three optional subjects - Nursing in simulations for practice I and II and Nursing Work at the beds, where students can prepare even better for work in hospitals in a safe environment of the Simulation Center.

Dear students, colleagues,

I wish you good health and energy for the upcoming weeks, we all have to face a situation that is not easy and is constantly changing.

Some workplaces are moving to full-distance teaching this week, because they find themselves in a critical personal situation. The others continue teaching as much as possible in person, but in any case, we all try to keep the teaching in some form.

We know that 4th and 5th grade students are being called to hospitals now, many working as volunteers, even from other grades. We really appreciate it. Some rightly feel concerned about the fate of teaching, and the uncertainty is also contributed by introducing non-standard procedures in their profession.

We still consider education and training for future occupations to be essential. To facilitate the situation, we have prepared a clear and detailed structure of subjects recognition and compensation, in the Simulation Center we also offer short courses of basic skills that can be usefull for helping in hospitals. There was also a discussion with student representatives and senators.

Thank you for your efforts. The situation requires more commitment from us than usual, but there is no reason to lose courage and enthusiasm.

Dean of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University doc. Martin Vokurka

Dear students, colleagues,

At the moment, there is no systemic change in teaching settings, but there may be partial changes within individual workplaces or subjects, about which you should be informed in a timely manner.

We evaluate and monitor the epidemiological situation, as well as other possible measures of the state or university, as well as the situation at our faculty and its workplaces.

During this week, we will inform you more about the situation and the possible outlook for teaching for the next period, including the situation with the involvement of medics and other students in helping health care. Please follow the website and FB of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University.
