Medical journals exist to provide clinicians, students and the public with up to date information on medical technology and medical practices. For clinicians, it is of particular interest to read original papers about recent case reports and practices.
The purpose of this seminar is to introduce research articles from biomedical journals to the undergraduate MD students at our faculty. The discussion and article presentation will be made in English. The seminar is simulation of the situation that can be seen at international meetings. Also each student will have unique opportunity to assess own level of speaking and understanding medical English.
I hope this course will to help students further develop their English language skills to better express and analyze their thoughts and attitudes in the English-speaking environment. I also hope that this course might ignite the passion for reading research article and maybe doing own research later on.
