ALEM Training Day 2019

On Eastersaturday, ALEM organised for the third Time in cooperation with the Hôpitaux Robert Schuman the „ALEM Training Day„, reuniting a total of about 60 Luxembourgish Medical Students at the Hôpital Kirchberg.

The main goals of this Day are on the one hand to connect Luxembourgish Medical Students with each other and the Luxembourgish Docters, as they are forced to study abroad in several European countries.

On the other Hand, the main goal of the Training Day is to improve basic medical Skills. A total of 10 different Workshops were held by medical Specialists of the Hôpitaux Robert Schuman.

Each Student participated in 4 Workshops, lasting respectively 90 Minutes in areas of his choice and the Day was concluded with a Case Quiz.
