Choose a Workshop you like

Each workshop has some recommended years of study, but there are NO strict restrictions. However, we strongly advise you to keep our suggestions in mind – if you decide to book a Workshop that doesn’t target your year of study, you might have troubles understanding some parts.

Book it

Log into your account, go to the “Book a workshop” tab and follow the instructions there. You must book your Workshop before 5 April 2019.

Each participant can go to one Workshop. The number of available places at any given Workshop is limited. The places at our Workshops are given on a first come, first served basis. This means that all the participants who paid the fee have equal chances. Workshops will be held only with a minimum of 3 participants. You can participate only in the Workshops you have booked and to which you have been accepted. In order to receive your Certificate of Participation, you must book one Workshop and you must attend it. This is just a quick overview – for all the details, be sure to revisit our Terms & Conditions.

If you want to book a Workshop now and you plan to submit an Abstract later (but before the Abstract Submission Deadline), you should pay the Presenting Author Fee. By paying the Presenting Author Fee you assume full responsibility for submitting an abstract before 5 March 2018. Please note that if you do not submit an abstract, any Workshop booking gets cancelled, your account becomes inactive and you do not get a refund. More about this here.

You are allowed to do this twice – see the instructions in the “Book a workshop” tab in My Account.

You can do that if you pay the ExtraWorkshop Fee (20 EUR / 90 RON) before 1 April 2019 (23:59 GMT +2). You can pay the ExtraWorkshop Fee together with your initial payment or at a later time. In order to pay for a second workshop at a later time, you have to log into your account, go to the “Payment” tab and follow the instructions there. You can proceed to book your second Workshop immediately. You must book your second Workshop before 5 April 2019 (23:59 GMT +2). You are free to book any Workshop, as long as there are available places (the number of available places at any given Workshop is limited). The places are given on a first-come, first-served basis (this means that all the participants who paid their fees have equal chances, regardless of whether it is their first or second Workshop).

COMPASS – MEDICS Edition

Recommended years of study: All years

Trainer: Victor Ştefan Ionescu MD/ Ştefania Grigoraş/ Radu Tiron

Academic title: Research Assistant, Victor Babeș National Institute of Pathology

Location: Victor Babes National Institute of Pathology, Cell biology lab

Day: Friday, 12 April

Time: 14:00-20:00

Must bring: Lab coat

Description: Perform one of the most widely-used molecular diagnostics techniques at COMPASS (The Comprehensive PCR Applied SOMS Session)! During the workshop you will be patiently guided through the steps of your first Polymerase Chain Reaction. Using a real forensic science kit and materials such as hair or saliva, you will analyse your own DNA to see whether you have a particular mutation. Performing a molecular technique enables you to think forward to something new – be it a new cure, a correct diagnosis or simply a better dosage of a patient’s medication.

FAST (Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma)

Recommended years of study: 4-6

Trainer: Alexandru Carâp MD, PhD

Academic title: Assistant Lecturer, General Surgery Department, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy

Location: St. Pantelimon Emergency Hospital

Day: Friday, 12 April

Time: 14:00-18:00

Must bring: Lab coat / Scrub top + Medical shoes

Description: Life-threatening intra-abdominal injuries don’t always come with obvious warning signs. Imagine you are in front of a trauma patient. You do a quick physical examination – but you still cannot leave out the possibility that he may be massively bleeding into his peritoneum. What should you do next? The answer is FAST – a noninvasive and accurate ultrasound examination, which you’ll learn during our workshop. FAST provides vital information without delay and allows you to rapidly identify free fluid in the peritoneal, pericardial, or pleural spaces.

Histopathology Insights – Breast Pathology

Recommended years of study: All years

Trainer: Adrian Dumitru MD, PhD

Academic title: Assistant Lecturer, Anatomical Pathology Department, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy

Location: University Emergency Hospital

Day: Friday, 12 April

Time: 16:00-18:00

Must bring: Lab coat / Scrub top

Description: Breast pathology has many clinical manifestations, but none can indicate exactly what disease you are dealing with. It is the histological examination of breast tissue that clarifies this problem and you can practice it at our workshop. You’ll discover various types of breast pathology and you’ll learn how to correlate the macroscopic aspect of pathological specimens with the images you see through the microscope. In addition, you will perform yourself some of the stages of histology slide production.

Histopathology Insights – Cervical Pathology

Recommended years of study: All years

Trainer: Tiberiu Georgescu MD, PhD

Academic title: Assistant Lecturer, Anatomical Pathology Department, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy

Location: University Emergency Hospital, Pathology Lab, Ground Floor

Day: Friday, 12 April

Time: 14:00-16:00

Must bring: Lab coat / Scrub top

Description: Histological analysis is regarded as the gold standard for the appropriate clinical management of patients with human papillomavirus–associated disease. Improve your understanding of cervical pathology at our workshop, where you’ll learn how to correlate the macroscopic aspect of pathological specimens with the images you see through the microscope. In addition, you will perform yourself some of the stages of histology slide production.

Know your joints: Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Recommended years of study: 3-6

Trainer: Delia Cinteză MD, PhD/ Daniela Poenaru MD, PhD/ Sebastian Diaconescu MD/ Dan Dumitrașcu MD

Academic title: Associate Professor, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy/ Senior Lecturer, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy/ Rehabilitation Medicine, Filantropia Clinical Hospital

Location: Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Filantropia Clinical Hospital

Day: Friday, 12 April

Time: 12:00-14:00

Must bring: Lab coat / Scrub top

Description: From professional athletes to laypersons, all patients with musculoskeletal complaints benefit from ultrasound imaging. It is a readily available and noninvasive test, that is now part of any rigorous clinical examination. But as with all forms of imaging it needs to be handled with care and integrated into clinical reasoning – and this is exactly where our workshop comes in handy. At one of the most popular workshops last year, you will learn not only the principles behind ultrasound imaging, but also high-precision procedures, such as ultrasound guided intra articular injections.

Q

QUBICL – MEDICS Edition

Recommended years of study: All years

Trainer: Ana-Maria Enciu MD PhD CS III/ Mihaela Ioana Enache

Academic title: Senior Lecturer, Department of Cell Biology, Molecular Biology and Histology, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy

Location: Victor Babes National Institute of Pathology, Biochemistry Lab

Day: Friday, 12 April

Time: 09:00-14:00

Must bring: Lab coat

Description: Biochemistry is more fun when you practice it on yourself! QUBICL (Quick Biochemistry Class) is an original SOMS workshop where you will perform several widely used laboratory tests – key elements of modern medical practice. You will measure your own salivary cortisol levels using ELISA and calculate your protein concentration using a protein assay standard curve. Be aware: LOTS of pipetting involved!
